Item Description: Contact Publishing Company, Paris, 1923. First Edition. 12mo. Black lettered blue jacket over beige wraps, enclosed in green cloth slipcase. Hemingway's first book. Although Bill Bird's Three Mountains Press' In Our Time was contracted earlier, Robert McAlmon's Contact Editions book was published and released earlier. Limited to 300 copies only. This copy inscribed by Hemingway on the front endpaper "This book is the property of James Cowan--he is not responsible for it--nor did he buy it. It was presented to him by the author--Ernest Hemingway" Cowan was a fellow reporter for the Toronto Star newspaper, for which Hemingway also worked. Included also is a sheaf of correspondence between former owners and James Cowan attesting to it's history and authenticity. Also included a dealer's catalogue in which this book was listed for sale back in late thirties or forties. This copy wrapped in glassine which is contemporary but not original. Wear and a few tears to the extremities but a particularly fine example of a fragile book, otherwise a very good copy. A great Toronto copy of an essential item in the Hemingway canon. Inscribed by the Author. Bookseller Inventory # 20196

Item Description: San Francisco de Paula (Cuba) and Madrid, 1953-1955., 1955. Large 4to. Altogether 4¼ pp. on 5 pp. With one autogr. envelope. To George Brown, the owner of a gymnasium in Manhattan, Hemingway's personal trainer, boxing coach, and friend. - I: Hemingway's affection for his sporting pal is evident in this revealing and highly personal letter, written shortly before Ernest and Mary left for an African safari: "How are you kid? Mary sends her best. We are fine and in very good shape and think of you often. Were out on a trip together on the boat for two weeks and we go to bed every night after it gets dark and have plenty of time to talk and to sleep good [.]". Hemingway then gives news of his sons and mentions his youngest son ("Gig"), who, in his early twenties, was turning violently hostile to his father: "I am sorry I spoke against Gig since he is a friend of yours and used to be of mine as well as my favorite son. But he changed very strange very fast. As bad as though the devil was managing him. I couldn't ever see him again; not even to go and see him hanged. But if he seems good to you, O.K. I haven't heard from him since last November when he came of age [.]" (Finca Vigia, San Francisco de Paula, Cuba, 12 May 1953). - II: Written on the eve of the latter's visit to Cuba and while preparations are being made for the filming of "The Old Man And The Sea": "George you can't have any confidence in any of those characters. They are all tighter than a hogs ass in fly time. That Goldwyn kid was nice as could be when it was a question of seeing us and thus becoming an old pal of old Ernie [ ]" (ibid., 18 August 1955). - III: Written from his sickbed. Preparations were still being made for the film, and Hemingway had spent September trying to get actions shots of leaping marlins for the producer Leland Hayward. Apparently, too, Hemingway was making an effort to get Brown involved in getting Spencer Tracy in shape, for he writes: "I am very sorry about [Peter] Viertel [who wrote the screenplay] behaving so carelessly. He is a very selfish boy but I think he has a little bit of an excuse in that he was with Zinneman on the script and was expecting you out there. While Zinneman was down here we discussed the whole thing about your getting Spencer in shape and agreed it was absolutely necessary and we spoke about it again on the long distance phone [ ]" (ibid., 25 November 1955; with several autograph lines in pencil). - IV: In early 1954 Ernest and Mary Hemingway suffered two near-fatal plane crashes in Uganda, and Hemingway's injuries were extensive (according to Carlos Baker, "The crash at Butiaba and the fire at Shimoni had [.] left him no more than a shadow of his former vigor"). "Just got your letter of Jan 14 George forwarded back from Nairobi. Sure glad you liked the first hooks piece with the pictures. We'd only been out 4-5 weeks then and I wasn't really in shape. In 5 months of that stuff got down to under 190 before those crashes. Now no exercise since Jan 23-24th except early necessary damaging exercise (pitching rocks left-handed with a busted back type of exercise). Good thing I was in shape though. All doctors look at you like some kind of freak like Joe Grimm because you are alive. Am tired of being so smashed up. But always remember you and your head. We beat this one I guess but the smashed vertebrae etc is a no good rap [ ]" ([Madrid], 24 May 1954). - I to III: On personal stationery of Finca Vigia; IV: on sheet of hotel stationery ("Palace Hotel, Madrid"). - Partly light-soiled, otherwise in fine condition.

Item Description: France, Spain, the Bahamas, Cuba,and aboard the S.S. Volendamof the Holland-America Line, [circa fall 1931–1938], 1938. 4to and 8vo. 18 pages. Nice unpublished groiup of letters to his close friend Guy Hickok. A young Ernest Hemingwayfirst metGuy Hickok in the early 1920s when they were both acting as foreign correspondentsfor North American newspapers in Paris. Hemingway, working for the Toronto Star, began what would become an enduring friendship with the good natured Hickok, who was on assignment for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Hickok even provided the inspiration for Hemingway's short story ,Che Ti Dice La Patria?’ (collected in Men Without Women, 1927). This correspondence is congenial, unrestrainedand mildly profane. ,I am a son of a bitch ifI have becomerespectable.’ Hemingway in the midst of writing Death in the Afternoon. - A remarkable unpublishedletter with two original sketcheswrittenaboard the S.S. Valendom,7 May 1931,’The reason I didn't write you about the book is because it is hard enough to write it withoutwriting about it. But listen if you will come down to Madrid you can read it typed in as far as it is to date besides which we could see who can drink and who not and see the bullfights.’ He also rankles at what must have been an earlier comment of Guy's ,I am a son of a bitch if I have become respectable and no later than last winter I was forced to sleep all night on the front porch -not being a good size for Pauline to carry upstairs.’ The relating of a drunken stumble into a holy water fount and Spanish villagers spying the "3/4 empty " bottle in the front seat of his convertible provides further evidence.Hemingway apologizes forhis lack of communication, impeded by being seriously injured in a Montana wreck: ,I couldn't write then because my arm was still paralyzed. Have only been able to write since 3 weeks. It will be absolutely all right if keep after it. Anyway can shoot, fish and write withit now, but can't sock anybody.’Hemingway also provides an ink sketch of his range of motion in the armand another drawing of his new home in Key Westthat points out his favorite features, like a "flat roof, see all over town and sea.’ - The remaining letters were to bringHickok up to date on varioushappenings both familial and professional. In thefall of 1930, Hemingway writes of the birth of his son Gregory:’Pauline left last night for Paris. We are going to play the overture in Kansas City, leaving around last of September.’ A few years later he was more focused on his finances and hiscareer,writing in June of 1935 about the potential serialization of one ofhis works in Scribner's magazine ,I was always suspicious of that syndicate job.’There are frequent references to loans between the two men (Guy more often being the recipient of funds) but Hemingway thanks him for sending $100 when the author was down to $25 in the bank. All unpublished. Bookseller Inventory # 47476

Item Description: 1933. First Edition. "HEMINGWAY, Ernest. Winner Take Nothing. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933. Octavo, original black cloth with gold paper labels, original dust jacket. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $45,000.First edition of Hemingway's famed collection of short stories, an especially rare presentation/association copy warmly inscribed by Hemingway in Paris the day after publication, to his close friend, Guy Hickok, bureau chief of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, "To Guy with much affection, Ernest, Paris, Oct 28, 1933." Also with the bookseller ticket of Sylvia Beach's famed Paris bookshop, Shakespeare and Company, where Hemingway saw the first copies of Winner Take Nothing, which had just been shipped over from Scribner's. This extremely rare presentation first edition of Winner Take Nothing possesses an especially memorable association in Hemingway's inscription—dated in Paris the day after publication—to Guy Hickok, "one of Hemingway's closest friends in Paris" (Montgomery Review 25:1, 112). The two first met when Hemingway, new to Paris, attended meetings of the Anglo-American Press Club. Hickok, head of the Paris bureau of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, impressed Hemingway with his knowledge of fine food, sports and French wines. "Hickok's neat black mustache was impressive too, and during a visit to Germany in the summer of 1922 Hemingway more than matched it" (Lynn, 122). The two also shared a keen interest "in boxing, horse racing, human interest stories, and tall tales. Ernest never crossed the Seine without dropping in at the sign of the Eagle in the Boulevard de la Madeleine. Laughter was always skyrocketing through the smoke-filled rooms" (Baker, 87). In 1927 Hemingway and Hickok set off on a tour of Italy. "In late March, in Hickok's battered Ford coupe, the two travelers crossed the border into Italy at Ventimiglia, traveling down the Riviera to Genoa In a village 20 kilometers above La Spezia, a self-assured young Fascist, disdainful of foreigners, commandeered a ride Hemingway described the young man in sardonic terms in an article, 'Italy, 1927,' first published as a straight journalistic account in The New Republic (May 18, 1927) and five months later as a short story, retitled 'Che Ti Dice la Patria?' [in Men Without Women]." Hemingway's chilling glimpse into Fascism also highlighted a comic encounter when "a chummy whore assaulted the uncomfortable Guy Hickok with her obvious charms." Hickok and Hemingway were also frequent correspondents, with Hemingway writing Hickok of his pride in A Farewell to Arms [1929]—"It's a swell book—I'm damned if it's not," and describing Death in the Afternoon (1932) as "'my bloody book' It was a good book, he assured Hickok. 'Really maybe the best one yet' Hickok, who took pride in Hemingway's later success and admired Hemingway's ambition, furthered Hemingway's legend by writing articles about him and his wartime exploits for the Eagle" (Mellow, 346-7, 377, 414, 174). This exceptional presentation/association copy also contains the distinct bookseller ticket of Sylvia Beach's famed Paris bookshop, Shakespeare and Company. "For 20 years Hemingway was a prominent player in the history of Shakespeare and Company To the delight of Sylvia, Hemingway arrived in Paris the evening of 26 October [1933] and came to see her the next morning. 'He and I are good old friends,' she declared in a letter 'He looks fine and handsome'" (Fitch, 117, 341). Ernest's brother, Leicester, would recall: "At Sylvia Beach's bookshop Ernest had a chance to see the first copies of Winner Take Nothing, which had just been shipped over by Scribner's. He liked the jacket, which he had not seen before since he'd had to correct proofs by cable" (My Brother, 139). Six of this collection's 14 stories made their first appearance here. "Published October 27, 1933" (Hanneman A12). Hanneman A12a. Grissom A.12.1.a. As Ernest Hemingway could be both reclusive and notoriously cold to admirers, this wonderful presentation/associati.

Item Description: Three Mountains Press, Paris, 1924. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION, number 80 of only 170 copies, of Hemingway's second book - the book that would define his style and help launch his career. Printed on Rives hand-made paper and with woodcut portrait frontispiece after Henry Strater. "From their first appearance in 1924, the in our time chapters have been recognized by their author, readers, and critics as profoundly compelling prose in an altogether new form. '[I]t is where I think I have gotten hold of it,' Hemingway wrote to Edmund Wilson a few months after finishing them (25 Nov. 1923, in Selected Letters 105). Wilson, the most influential critic of his time for Hemingway's generation, agreed: '[H]is prose is of the first distinction,' Wilson declared in on of the book's first reviews and added, 'he is? strikingly original, and in the dry compressed little vignettes of In Our Time [sic], has almost invented a form of his own' ('Dry Points' 120)? "Numerous other reviewers, who had never heard of Ernest Hemingway, shared Wilson's enthusiasm, and even those repelled by Hemingway's violent subject matter acknowledged the power of his prose. Fellow writers, too, recognized that, as Scott Fitzgerald put it in recommending the book to his publisher, 'He's the real thing.'" (Cohen, Hemingway's Laboratory: The Paris in our time). Provenance: With decorative bookplate of Helen Hamilton by the noted American artist Ralph Fletcher Seymour on front pastedown. Hamilton is possibly the American writer and political activist Helen Hamilton Gardener (1853-1925). Paris: Three Mountains Press, 1924. Tall octavo, original publisher's decorated tan paper boards; custom cloth box. A few spots of rubbing to spine, one corner lightly bumped; boards a little bowed; usual discoloration to endpapers. A very nice copy. With only 170 copies printed, the scarcest of all Hemingway titles. Bookseller Inventory # 129

Item Description: New York Scribner 1935, 1935. First Edition, First Printing. Signed presentation copy to Ernest HemingwayÕs friend, newspaper columnist Walter Winchell. Inscribed: ÒTo Walter Winchell from his friend and admirer. Ernest Hemingway.Ó Very good with the usual fading to the green cloth but less so than commonly found in a bright very good plus first issue dust jacket. Enclosed in a custom cloth clamshell box. Hemingway thought highly of Winchell in their early days and wrote that ÒWinchell is the greatest newspaperman that ever livedÓ and remarked that Winchell was the Òonly reporter who could last three rounds with the Zeitgeist.Ó Walter Winchell, was at one time one of the most powerful individuals in America with his newspaper column syndicated in hundreds of newspapers and his role as radio commentator helping him to reach millions of people. In the 1940s and 1950s, WinchellÕs obssession with anti-communist conspiracies and his support of the evil Senator Joseph McCarthy eventually lost him his following. Bookseller Inventory # 14450J

Item Description: New York Charles Scribner's Sons 1926, 1926. First edition, First Issue with nine titles listed on the rear panel of the dustjacket. A superb advance copy of the first printing, with an original photograph of Hemingway tipped in and the printed publisher's biographical statement affixed, announcing that " "The Sun Also Rises" will be published by Charles Scribner's Sons in the Fall" 8vo, original black cloth lettered in red on the spine and upper cover. [8], 143 pp. A very fine, especially well preserved copy of Hemingway's first novel, clean and solid, hinges firm, the jacket with a bit of mellowing caused by time and with a small chip to the tip of the jacket's spine panel. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, VERY RARE ADVANCE COPY WITH ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH AND PUBLISHER'S TYPED STATEMENT AFFIXED ANNOUNCING THE FORTHCOMING PUBLICATION OF "THE SUN ALSO RISES" AND WITH FORD MADDOX FORD'S LAUDATORY COMMENT ON HEMINGWAY. THIS IS THE AUTHOR'S FIRST LONG WORK TO BE PUBLISHED. Although it was written after THE SUN ALSO RISES --"to cool out," Hemingway explained-- THE TORRENTS OF SPRING was published prior to his more famous novel. It was written as a parody of Sherwood Anderson's Dark Laughter. "It seems to have started as a knockabout parody of Sherwood Anderson's mechanized folkware" (quoted in THE HEMINGWAY READER). Written in ten days, it is a satirical treatment of pretentious writers. Hemingway received a mixed reaction to the novella that was sharply critical of other authors. His wife Hadley believed the characterization of Anderson was "nasty", while F. Scott Fitzgerald considered the novella to be a masterpiece. Bookseller Inventory # 28091

Outstanding Autograph Letter Signed, 6 pp on: HEMINGWAY, ERNEST

Item Description: In this timely and substantial letter, Hemingway responds to Abner Green's request to write press releases for The American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born. Hemingway's opinions are clear, especially with the suggestion that he write about the "murder of sending people guilty of political offenses back to Fascist countries and advocating some provisions for the right of asylum for political refugees." Hemingway writes on the envelope flap, "your press release." Specifically, he describes the brutal murder of Otto Richter, a 21-year old anti-Nazi German who had fled to the United States in 1933. Hemingway refers to his Esquire and Cosmopolitan magazine articles and Cuban politics. This a remarkable letter. Additional background information on the letter follows the text: "Dear Green.Was in Cuba 6 weeks working on something and did not see your Richter releases or [other] releases as P.O. not forward 2nd class mail. However, you're so much better than my own conscience that sometimes wonder if you must not feel pretty happy at what a good man you are. Certainly you have a damned worthy job and presumably are being paid for doing it as well and you have the satisfaction of being morally superior to Guerillas or just call it bandits. O.K. pal. To please you and see what difference it would make haven't written an Esquire article for 4 months. Have given them 2 good stories I could have sold elsewhere.and have been working like a son of a bitch. Now I am a shit because I've sold my 3rd story in 4 years to Cosmopolitan. The other two were good stories and so is this one. You go to hell. Now what do you want me to do about your press releases? By the time they catch up with me is too late to protest as now on Richter who you have sadly on 13th and today is 18th and you sent that one by airmail. Will you write a telegram to be addressed to Sec. Perkins which I can sign and you send and I pay for any such cases. Can have it on file in KW office of Western Union and you wire there collect giving name of deportee etc. and the girl there will send it and charge it to me. Or do you want me to write an Esquire piece on the murder of sending people guilty of political offenses back to Fascist countries and advocating some provisions for the right of asylum for political refugees. It is a subject I can write a good piece on. In that case please give me list of cases and their disposition. Also information as to what countries would accept Richter for instance if he were deported to another country than Germany. What do you think would be proper solution if a man is convicted of illegal entry? Give him a choice of where to be deported? What countries will accept him under that circumstance? As I see it the principal difficulty is that a political refugee now cannot enter legally since he must make an escape from his own country therefore his is always liable for illegal entry and you've got to find a legal way to pass him on somewhere else or provide for asylum of political refugees. Otherwise you are simply going to publicize an endless series of deportations which is o.k. if anybody wants martyrs but god damned impractical as tactics. Will you please write me ? to Box 406-Key West-Fla. Anyway out west with my wife and [Bob} The [kids] middle of July and will take your [doll] with me and write a piece or will send the telegrams. Arrange for them in advance or both. I didn't answer your letter before this one about my stuff because it was so bloody righteous. Maybe it wasn't. What the hell. Anyway if righteousness is your bread and cheeze [sic] and red wine for Christ sake eat and drink it well. People in the church die happiest. It doesn't matter what form the church takes and if feeling superior is all you've got for Christ sake feel superior. I get the same kick when I write a good story. Send me the dope. I'm sorry as hell about Richter. I'm also sorry they took a pal of mine out 4 weeks ago and broke both his ankles, poun. Bookseller Inventory # 4330
