About this Item

First edition. 8vo, half tan cloth and boards, lettered on the spine in brown, in the publisher's original dustjacket. 247. A fine copy of the text, the paper fresh and essentially pristine, the binding also fine and in a fine jacket, the mylar wrapped jacket has its flaps glued to the endpapers, some effect from the glue on both the rear and front free-flies. Hemingway's last published work, issued posthumously. Set in the Mediterranean, the story of a young couple on their honeymoon and the dangers which they face when the literary career of one sparks jealousy in the other. Two of the most "complex and convincing" characters of Hemingway's books. "Hemingway began THE GARDEN OF EDEN in 1946 and worked on it off and on for the next fifteen years, during the same period he was writing THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA, A MOVEABLE FEAST, THE DANGEROUS SUMMER, and ISLANDS IN THE STREAM. He described the book s theme as the happiness of the Garden that a man must lose. Here, Hemingway s interpretation of love and art is darkly profound, his imagination is keenly alive, his writing masterly. THE GARDEN OF EDEN published twenty-five years after the author s death, is a provocative and astonishingly modern work." -Publisher. Bookseller Inventory # 26848
