Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, NY, 1940. First edition. A presentation copy inscribed by Hemingway on the front endpaper to Irma Wyckoff, "with appreciation and affection." Wyckoff was the personal secretary to Hemingway's long-time editor at Scribner's, the legendary Max Perkins. Hemingway's epic novel of the Spanish Civil War was inspired by his own experiences as a journalist during the conflict. For Whom the Bell Tolls is considered one of the writer's best works, and the novel's protagonist, Robert Jordan, is the fully-realized manifestation of Hemingway's ideal hero -- a man who exhibits grace under pressure. A very fine copy in a bright original pictorial dust wrapper, which shows only the slightest wear to the spine ends and corners, one short, closed tear to the bottom edge of the front panel, and a small scratch to the front panel near the spine. Housed in a custom-made red cloth box backed in gilt-titled blue morocco. (Grissom A.17.1.a). Bookseller Inventory # 25044

Item Description: MANY OF THE GREAT WORKS OF HEMINGWAY HAVE MADE THEIR WAY TO THE STAGE AND TO THE SCREEN. But when it came to television Hemingway was ambivalent deeply, as he was suspicious of Hollywood and reticent to make the jump to TV, while also seeing the potential for a desirable expansion of the reach of his works and the profit from such adaptations. In the end he decided to embrace the possibility, and he chose a A. E. Hotchner, a freelance writer, to guide him with this new medium. In Hotchner, he found a friend, fellow writer, biographer and surrogate son. The two would maintain a lifelong friendship, inaugurated in Cuba and commemorated in the compilation of their correspondence, "Dear Papa, Dear Hotch".As that book relates, "In January 1950, a cognac-inspired conversation with Ernest in Italy about converting one art form into another prompted Hotchner's first foray into adaptation." This occurred in 1953 at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, when "The Capital of the World" set to a ballet was televised nationally. This made little money but established a mutual trust between the two. This was followed by "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" in 1955 and "The Battler" later that year, and 3 other works in 1957 and 1958. At this time, "teleplays" were the predominant form of adaptation of theatrical and other works. These teleplays were often live but as technology progressed some were pre-recorded on tape.Did Hemingway approve of adaptations of his great works? Albert Defazio, who edited "Dear Papa", notes that Hemingway appears only to have watched one adaptation. On March 16, 1959, Hotchner visited the Hemingways in Ketchum, ID and helped them in their car drive south. In a motel in Phoenix, they watched part two of Hotchner's TV adaptation of "For Whom the Bell Tolls". Approving of what he saw, just a month later in a meeting in New York, he gave Hotchner free reign to continue with his adaptations in this very document.Document Signed, New York City, April 23, 1959. "I hereby grant to A.E. Hotchner, in consideration of his services, the right and authority to present a theatrical program based on my writings, this authority to include all forms of 'live' performances in any place of his choosing."Hotchner would go on to create 9 adaptations for television based on this document, and these would cement Hemingway's reputation as a writer with mass appeal, one who could cross media platforms.

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1940. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION of arguably Hemingway's greatest work, with extremely scarce Scribner's outer jacket over the original dust jacket. "In February 1939, with his marriage to Pauline essentially over, Hemingway took his fishing boat, the Pilar, to Havana, where, living in his favorite room in the Hotel Ambos Mundos, he began writing what would be received as his finest novel, For Whom the Bell Tolls. In April Gellhorn rented and made habitable a property outside of Havana, "La Finca Vigia," where she and Hemingway set up their writers' workshop. He worked steadily on his Spanish Civil War story of an American dynamiter, Robert Jordan, and his epic task of destroying a bridge behind Republican lines? "At the end of July 1940 Hemingway delivered his completed typescript of For Whom the Bell Tolls to Max Perkins. The novel appeared on 21 October to ecstatic reviews; four days later Paramount Pictures offered Hemingway $100,000 for the film rights" (American National Biography). First issue: Without photographer's name on back panel of dust jacket. New York: Charles Scribner's, 1940. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket, original Scribner's printed outer jacket. Book with toning to pastedowns, dust jacket with a little edge wear; outer jacket with toning to spine and wear to fold and edges. An exceptional copy: the outer jacket has kept the dust jacket extremely bright and fresh; the outer jacket is the only such example we've seen on the market. Bookseller Inventory # 1181

Item Description: New York: Chas. Scribner's Sons, 1940., 1940. Cloth. Spine somewhat rubbed and darkened, a bit tanned and a trifle shaken, but a sound copy. Later printing of the first edition (without the 'A'). Inscribed by Hemingway on the half- title: "To Max Showalter with all good wishes Ernest Hemingway." Accompanied by two other items: a) another copy, first printing, bearing Max Showalter's ownership signature on the free endsheet (endsheets darkened at gutters, else very good, in defective, but largely complete, dust jacket); and b) Mary Hemingway's HOW IT WAS (New York: Knopf, 1976), first edition, near fine in very good dust jacket, inscribed by Mary Hemingway to Showalter in Los Angeles in the year of publication. Showalter (a.k.a. Casey Adams) enjoyed a long career in film and television, and was a feature player at 20th Century Fox favored by Darryl Zanuck, who required Showalter's assumption of the 'Adams' stage name. Though he was associated with a long list of films and television programs from the 1940s-1980s, we find no record of his credited association with a film adaptation of Hemingway's work. He did, however, originate the role of Ward Cleaver (the Beaver's old man), which later passed to Hugh Beaumont. Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 50601
