About this Item

This is a very nicely preserved fifthteen edition with a jacket from an earlier edition. The projected jacket has a price of $2.75, which indicates that it is from one of the early editions, possibly even the first. An Ernest Hemingway blurb is on the front, below the illustration, and comments from seven critics on the back. There is a 2 inch by 1/2 inch place in the middle of the front illustration where the lines of the drawing are lost because the upper level of the paper has been removed (hence it's not a tear or a piece missing and it isn't of a darker color--I don't know the proper word to use, but I hope I make myself clear). It obscures the lower part of one face in the drawing, which is otherwise intact. The jacket itself is nicely preserved, only very minor edge wear. In sum, this adds up to a nice copy, with a very good jacket and even better book, with well-preserved brown covers and black on titles on the front and spine. The bindinig is straight, the text clean and unmarked. A PO inscription on the inside of the front cover. Bookseller Inventory # 000786
