  • A Farewell to Arms – Ernest Hemingway – Coveted Edition – Published by Jonathan Cape

    A Farewell to Arms – Ernest Hemingway – Coveted Edition – Published by Jonathan Cape

    Hemingway’s greatest book. WWI in Italy and a love affair that ends in tragedy.

    Published by Jonathan Cape, London in 1970 with the desirable wrap around jacket with the striking font designed by Hans Tisdall. Octavo, 286 pages, a very good copy albeit roughing from removal of private library removal on front end paper

    Minor ageing and a complete near fine dust jacket.

    Read the first paragraph and you will never leave it!

    “In the late afternoon of that year we lived in a house in a village that looked across the river and the plain to the mountains. In the bed of the river there were pebbles and boulders, dry and white in the sun, and the water was clear and swiftly moving and blue in the channels. Troops went by the house and down the road and the dust they raised powdered the leaves of the trees. The trunks of the trees too were dusty and the leaves fell early that year and we saw the troops marching along the road and the dust rising and leaves, stirred by the breeze, falling and the soldiers marching and afterwards the road bare and white except for the leaves”

  • True at First Light – Ernest Hemingway (Introduced by Patrick Hemingway) – First Edition

    True at First Light – Ernest Hemingway (Introduced by Patrick Hemingway) – First Edition

    Regarded by the London Times as “the most important book to appear in 1999″

    A posthumously published work. Released in 1999 to coincide with the 100 year anniversary of Hemingway’s birth.

    Relates to the 1953-54 safari to East Africa with his fourth wife. Part fiction part fact. Much controversy regarding its release. One school believing that Patrick’s indulgence in editing this unfinished work partly commercially driven. Hemingway lovers on the other hand happy to get some more words from the great man.

    Published by Heinemann, 319 pages. A fine copy in near new condition.

    Hemingway in Africa with some reality and some fantasy.

  • The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway – First UK Edition 1952

    The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway – First UK Edition 1952

    Should be everyone’s favourite short read. Nobel citation – “his powerful style-forming mastery of the art of modern narration, as most lately revealed in his novel The Old Man and the Sea”.

    A story with a powerful message about pushing beyond one’s natural boundaries .. and where do we end up?

    A first UK edition, technically behind the US issue the same year. The US edition published 1st September 1952, the UK edition later that month.

    Octavo, 127 pages. In a later issue of the adorable colourful wrap around jacket by Hans Tisdall. The jacket in good condition. The boards have some marks and the front free end paper has been excised (presumably carried a shy person’s name). The pages are pretty clean, some light foxing in the back end papers. Still a good to better copy.

    Nobel Classic – Ernest Hemingway – First UK Edition in relevant but later jacket.

  • The First 49 Stories – Ernest Hemingway – 1952 Edition

    The First 49 Stories – Ernest Hemingway – 1952 Edition

    An early edition published by Jonathan Cape in 1952.

    Octavo, 471 pages, previous name on end paper, a very clean copy internally, unclipped dust jacket a trifle marked and chipped to lower spine. Very good overall.

    The best introduction to Hemingway. Many favourites including the Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber: Killers; Snows of Kilimanjaro; the Gambler the Nun, and the Radio etc

  • The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway – Cape Edition

    The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway – Cape Edition

    Published by Jonathan Cape a 1970 edition. Octavo, 127 pages with the magical wrap around dust jacket by Hans Tindal. Some light spotting to page edges, ownership name on free endpaper, otherwise very bright internally … better than good copy in a very good unclipped dust jacket.

    The Nobel citation reads – “his powerful style-forming mastery of the art of modern narration, as most lately revealed in his novel The Old Man and the Sea”.

    Just has to be a reflection of Hemingway’s life a struggle to reach beyond his boundaries …

    Should be everyone’s favourite short read.
