About this Item: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1935. First edition of Hemingway's second work of nonfiction, an account of a month on safari he and his wife took in East Africa during December 1933. Octavo, original green cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Gweneth P. Beam wishing her plenty of luck Ernest Hemingway." The recipient was a secretary at Scribners at the time of publication when Hemingway inscribed this copy to her. Some light fading to the cloth as usual in a bright near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very sharp example. Green Hills of Africa was published in 1935, but initially appeared in Scribners Magazine the same year (Meyers, 1985). The first edition explains that Hemingway "attempted to write an absolutely true book to see whether the shape of a country and the pattern of a month's action can, if truly presented, compete with a work of the imagination." The author's intentions were quickly confirmed when the first print-run sold a popular 10,500 copies, and it was aptly praised by The New York Times as "[a] fine book on death in the African afternoon.The writing is the thing; that way he has of getting down with beautiful precision the exact way things look, smell, taste, feel, sound." Not unlike Hemingway's virtuosic abilities, Green Hills of Africa also offers the writer's opinions on the value of his contemporaries: "The good American writers are Henry James, Stephen Crane, and Mark Twain Henry James wanted to make money. He never did, of course." Hemingway adds that most American writers are inadequate and "came to a bad end" The value of Green Hills of Africa, therefore, is three-fold. It serves as masterly written entertainment, a successful social experiment that tested the receptivity of the American public, and an insight into the author's literary evaluation. The Observer is correct when it wrote, "If he were never to write again, his name would live as long as the English language, for Green Hills of Africa takes its place beside his other works on that small shelf in our libraries which we reserve for the classics.".

Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine on a black ground, facsimile of Hemingway's signature in gilt on front cover, untrimmed, top edge pale tan. With the dust jacket – Grissom's "Jacket B", with the green band on the back panel of the jacket extending through nine lines of text (he refers to these as "styles" of jacket and not "states"). Housed in a green cloth chemise and dark green quarter morocco slipcase. Binding spine and periphery of covers slightly sunned, jacket spine lightly toned, minor creasing and nicks to extremities, a few light scuffs to slipcase. A very good copy. Chapter headings and other decorations by Edward Shenton. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "Dr. Hemingstein, I presume yrs always Ernest Hemingway". A playful inscription echoing Stanley's famous greeting to Livingstone. "Dr. Hemingstein" was a persona assumed by Hemingway on various occasions, sometimes as "Dr. Hemingstein the Philosopher", "old Dr. Hemingstein, that masterful deducer", and other variants. Lillian Ross notes in her memoir that he "signed a few letters 'Papa', but mostly he signed them 'Ernest' or 'Honest Ernie' or 'Huck von Hemingstein' or 'Ernest Buck Hemingstein' or 'Mountain Boy Huck' or 'Huckmanship von Hemingstein'" (Portrait of Hemingway, 1961). Czech, African Big Game 1785 to 1950, p. 74 ("Hemingway's classic is based very closely on his safari to East Africa"); Grissom A13.1.a; Hanneman A13. Seller Inventory # 121631

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # 14450J
