About this Item

The First Printing of the First U.K. edition of Hemingway's first novel, published in America as THE SUN ALSO RISES. 8vo, publisher's original medium blue cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, now with a perfect reproduction of the original jacket added, and housed in folding blue cloth clamshell box, the back gilt lettered. 286. A very pleasing copy, the text clean and fresh, the cloth with some mellowing at the spine panel and edges but all in all, a copy with very little wear, hinges strong and tight. Hemingway's first novel, published in America the year before as THE SUN ALSO RISES but this IS the Very scarce FIRST UK edition. An early and enduring modernist novel, Hemingway biographer Jeffrey Meyers writes that it is "recognized as Hemingway's greatest work" and Hemingway scholar Linda Wagner-Martin calls it his most important novel. The story of a group of American and British expats who travel from Paris to Pamplona for the running of the bulls. Hemingway describes "a Lost Generation", considered irretrievably damaged by World War I, as resilient and strong. While doing so he also investigates the themes of love, death, renewal in nature, and the meaning of masculinity. Bookseller Inventory # 26835
