Entire June issue in original colorful pictorial wraps, covers bright, with moderate soiling and rubbing, edge wear, occasional creasing mostly along spine edge at front cover, and very small closed tear at rear top edge. Includes a photograph of Hemingway in hunting attire holding a rifle, kneeling beside a downed lion. In this piece, Hemingway offers negative opinion about shootists, as the Africans call them, or tourists and would-be big game hunters who come to Africa to hunt lions from the safety of a moving car, or an enclosed cage that offers maximum protection. From the final paragraph, "You will be more of a sportsman to come back from Africa without a lion than to shoot one from the protection of a motor car, or from a blind at night when the lion is blinded by a light and cannot see his assailant." Issue includes other non - fiction from F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, and Theodore Dreiser, fiction from D. H. Lawrence, and 20 yr old Robert Snider whose contribution, Without Flowers, was his first story to appear in print, and poetry from Edgar Lee Masters. Bookseller Inventory #
