    First edition, early printing of Hemingway's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and one of his most famous works. Octavo, original blue cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Karen from her friend Ernest Hemingway." The recipient was the daughter of Waldo Peirce, one of Hemingway's oldest friends. After WWI had come to an end, Peirce befriended Hemingway in Europe and the two traveled together to various continental locations, in particular Spain. In 1937, Peirce painted a portrait of Hemingway which appeared on the cover of the October 18th issue of Time Magazine. Peirce was once called "the Ernest Hemingway of American painters." To that he replied, "They'll never call Ernest Hemingway the Waldo Peirce of American writers." Laid in is a letter of provenance signed by and in Karen Pierce's hand dated Sept. 6, 2007, "When I was 10 years old, Ernest Hemingway came to our house in Tucson, Arizona, to visit my father, Waldo Peirce. He signed a book for everyone in the family, and I got The Old Man and the Sea. Karen Peirce." Near fine in a near fine first-issue dust jacket with light rubbing, newspaper clipping to the half-title page. Photograph of Hemingway by Lee Samuels. An exceptional example. Signed examples of this work are uncommon, presentation copies even more so, particularly with such noted provenance. Upon its publication in 1952 by Charles Scribner's Sons, The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction the following year and was cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Hemingway in 1954. The novel reinvigorated Hemingway's literary reputation. It initiated a reexamination of his entire body of work. The novel was received with such alacrity, that it restored many readers' confidence in Hemingway's capability as an author. Indeed, the publisher even wrote on an early dust jacket, calling the novel a "new classic," and it was compared by many critics to such revered works as William Faulkner's "The Bear" and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick.

    First edition, first printing, in the first issue jacket, with the flaps printed in brown and with no mention of Hemingway's Pulitzer or Nobel Prize to the rear panel. This is Hemingway's final work of fiction and among his best-known works. Previously, much has been made of the colour tint on the rear panel portrait by Lee Samuels. The most recent bibliographer, C. Edgar Grissom, however, refutes Hanneman's earlier assertion that the blue tinted photograph on the rear panel predates the olive tint, noting, "the identification of a first-printing jacket does not require identifying ambiguous rear-jacket colours: It is the brown printing on the flaps and rear panel that identify the first-printing Scribner's jacket". The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1953, and was cited by the Nobel Committee in their awarding of Hemingway's Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. Grissom A24.1.a; Hanneman 24a. Octavo. Original light blue calico-grain cloth, spine lettered in silver, author's name to front board in blind. With pictorial dust jacket. Contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Head and foot of spine together with corners very slightly rubbed, slight browning to edges as usual, else a near-fine and crisp copy. Dust jacket toned at extremities and slightly frayed, minor tear to front cover, spine slightly toned and faded, else a very good and attractive example of the dust jacket.

    Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First edition. Near Fine book in like jacket, with just a touch of wear to spine ends and corners of both. Small closed tears along the upper edge of the front panel, but on the whole a pleasing collectible copy. The final work of fiction published in the author's lifetime, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and cited by the Nobel Prize Committee, The Old Man and the Sea cemented Hemingway's legacy as one of the greatest American writers of the twentieth century. The story follows the tribulations of an aging and suddenly unlucky fisherman, Santiago, as he tries to catch a gigantic marlin in the Straits of Florida. Ultimately, Santiago's story is an existential metaphor through which Hemingway explored in a seemingly simple way the dignity and biblical nature of an old man's trials at the end of life. It was a massive success. The book was originally published in full in an issue of Life Magazine, which subsequently sold 5 million copies in less than a week. "No outbursts of spite or false theatricalism impede the smooth rush of its narrative. Within the sharp restrictions imposed by the very nature of his story Mr. Hemingway has written with sure skill. Here is the master technician once more at the top of his form, doing superbly what he can do better than anyone else" (Contemporary New York Times Review). Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
