About this Item

First edition, the first issue with the Scribner’s seal and the "A" on the copyright page. 8vo, publisher’s original pale blue cloth lettered in silver on the spine, now with a perfect jacket in facsimile of the original added. 140 pp. The text is solid, clean and and very fresh, firm hinges, the cloth is good but with rubbing and some abrasion, mellowing to the spine and loss of silver to the lettering, some general soiling. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE OF WHAT IS ARGUABLY, THE AUTHOR’S GREATEST WORK. Hemingway’s Nobel Prize winning novel and one of the most perfect works penned in the 20th century. Eric Linklater for the Broadsheet states, "Hemingway has written nothing so beautiful as this brief tale, and nowhere, I think has his vision of heroic scars of live been so surely realized. It is a little book in space but read it three times and it grows in the mind like an old story of one’s childhood: so certain it is, so satisfying are its pains and valiancy.".
