  • The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway – First UK Edition 1952 – with interesting related gift inscription at the coincidental premier of the movie “The Snows of Kilimajaro”

    The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway – First UK Edition 1952 – with interesting related gift inscription at the coincidental premier of the movie “The Snows of Kilimajaro”

    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 first UK edition, technically a few days behind the US issue of 1st September 1952. Octavo, 127 pages with the special and rare double side dust jacket. One with the rather plain style covered in first reviews; the other the adorable colourful wrap around jacket by Tisdall. Not price clipped either way. The jacket in very good condition … the double sidedness means there is a ghost fold either way as the printing technique is not perfectly aligned. The boards and pages are very clean for a book often with some foxing near the ends. A very good if not better copy.

    Attached to front free end-paper and only glued along the inside edge is an interesting inscription reading …

    “I hope this will serve to remind you of a pleasant evening spent at the first British presentation of the Ernest Hemingway film “The Snows of Kilimajaro” – George C Cooper – Picture Post. October. 1952.

    The Picture Post (1938-1957) was the UK equivalent of Life Magazine and had a huge following from the outset. Given the timing it had a very positive role during WWII. Cooper obviously delighted to give his guests at the premier of “Snows” a first edition of Hemingway’s latest, and to be final, success.
