About this Item

A relatively attractive copy of the true first edition, with Scribner's "A" on the copyright page and no seal. The rear of the facsimile DJ has a photograph of the young Hemingway typing, but the photographer's credit ("Arnold - Sun Valley") is missing. This then is a true FACSIMILE COPY of the FIRST STATE DJ. The pages are clean and unmarked, but slightly faded. The binding is clean and tight. Price of $2.75 is present on unclipped DJ. There is some browning on the endpapers. The Scribner's "A" is present on the copyright page. 471 pages. This volume is bound in publisher's full oatmeal boards, with black lettering on the red panels on the spine and the author's stamped facsimile signature on the front cover. {ref: Hanneman A18a}. The book shows moderate external wear, with light soiling to the covers. Upper front corner is lightly bumped. The binding is firm. The pastedowns display markings. Two names and the date 1941 can be seen on the front flyleaf. Pages are clean and without markings. The intact facsimile dust jacket displays the price of $2.75 on the front flap, with small scratches at the top and bottom edge of the front panel. No photographer credit can be seen under photo on the back of the dust jacket. Note to prospective buyers: There has been a debate in previous years over whether the Scribner's seal should also be present on the copyright page. Other Scribner's books published around the same time such as To Have and Have Not, The Yearling, The Dark Horse, The Last Tycoon, and Cross Creek all have both the "A" and the seal. However, no one has produced a copy of this novel with both the "A" and Scribner's seal, and no one has come forward to say they have even seen such a copy. So the jury is NOT out. However, editions with just the "A" are NOT scarce, although prices vary widely. Also beware that there is a facsimile edition of this title, and the book has been offered without identifying the DJ as a facsimile. THIS IS A TRUE FIRST EDITION WITH A FACSIMILE COPY OF THE TRUE FIRST STATE OF THE DJ. Bookseller Inventory # 141028
