About this Item

Ernest Hemingway's "To Have and Have Not". First edition first printing with Scribner's Seal and "A" on the copyright page. Published by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1937. Measures 5.5" x 8.25", 262 pp. Comes with a facsimile (reproduction) dust jacket for protection and display. The jacket is in very good plus condition with some faint shelf wear. The book is in fair condition. Wear and soiling to the boards. Cloth loss at the edges of the spine with rubbed and sunned labels. The inner hinges have been re-glued. Previous owner's signature in ink on the front paste-down. Paper abrasions to the rear paste-down. Light dampstain at the top margin of the contents. The textblock is gently toned, clean, unmarked, and complete. The binding is sound. The first time we meet Harry Morgan, he is sitting in a Havana bar watching a gun battle raging out in the street. After seeing a Cuban get his head blown off with a Luger, Morgan reacts with typical Hemingway understatement: "I took a quick one out of the first bottle I saw open and I couldn't tell you yet what it was. The whole thing made me feel pretty bad." Still feeling bad, Harry heads out in his boat on a charter fishing expedition for which he is later stiffed by the client. With not even enough money to fill his gas tanks, he is forced to agree to smuggle some illegal Chinese for the mysterious Mr. Sing. From there it's just a small step to carrying liquor--a disastrous run that ends when Harry loses an arm and his boat. Once Harry gets mixed up in the brewing Cuban revolution, however, even those losses seem small compared to what's at stake now: his very life. -Amazon.
