About this Item: ASEA BOLIVIA CUBA PERU PANAMA, 1937. Condition: Good. On offer is a detailed, original 1937 travel diary handwritten by a Washington Pennsylvania woman named Helen Backer who along with her husband Harold [and we believe, as research suggests, her sister Mrs. Stella D. Wallace - a number of ephemeral pieces tucked in are in her name] travel extensively from New York to Cuba, Panama, Bolivia, Peru, Chile and back to America. Writing in a large 9 x 7 inch loose leaf 3-ring binder Helen does a great job detailing the highs and lows of her trip. Adding charm and depth to the entire journal are quite a few ephemeral pieces including stationery, tickets and notes she seems to have taken while off ship or out of the hotel. In total there are about 43 pages of entries and up to a dozen other notes. She goes the traditional route much of the time going to Sloppy Joe's in Cuba (Hemingway's favorite haunt) and not being very impressed with it; meeting Cecile B Demille's brother who was also traveling on the same ship much, much more. We understand from later materials Helen became a military nurse in World War II. There is some brittleness to the pages, some age toning but overall G. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Manuscript.

About this Item: Finca Vigia San Francisco de Paula Cuba, 1941. One page with 5-line postscript in blue ink, on sheet of personal stationery. 1 vols. 8vo. The Hemingways on a Diet. George Brown owned a gym in New York City where Hemingway worked out when he was in the town, and he and George Brown became fast friends, Brown serving as his trainer and boxing coach, as well as supplier of sporting goods, ticket agent, and general factotum to Hemingway, Martha (and later Mary) while they were in Cuba.A relaxed and contented Hemingway writes to his friend Brown, basking in the financial success of FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS, newly married to Martha Gellhorn, happy with his recently purchased home in Cuba: "Thank you ever so much for the things. They all came through the customs okay, and Martha's shoes have made a big improvement in her tennis. She beat me 6-3, for a dollar and today I think I can get her on the court for two dollars. We'll see what happens. She is down to 127 and I'm stuck at around 215 and can't get under it probably because of no big fish to boil the fat off the inside. It's been very quiet since you left, and no more shouts of 'Brown's deuce' and other rare methods of counting at tennis . I'll try and get in good shape before we come to New York, so oil up your bicycle. Don't try to come off the ropes holding with that right hand, because I've thought up something terrible to have happen . Martha sends her love."Beneath, in ink, Hemingway can't resist reporting his scores at shooting: "won a couple of matches at pigeons. 15 x 15. 17 x 17. And won $175 in combination singles and doubles shoot 19 x 20". Old folds, overall very good, with accompanying envelope addressed in Hemingway's hand One page with 5-line postscript in blue ink, on sheet of personal stationery. 1 vols. 8vo.

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # 47476

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.
