  • To Have and Have Not – Ernest Hemmingway

    To Have and Have Not – Ernest Hemmingway

    A Special Cape edition, with striking wrap-around dust jacket designed by Hans Tindal.

    Crown octavo, published by Jonathan Cape, London in 1955 one year after the first in this form. 246 pages. Jacket edges a little chipped, page edges aged, but a pretty good copy for this desirable edition.

  • Green Hills of Africa – Ernest Hemingway

    Green Hills of Africa – Ernest Hemingway

    Hemingway’s Green Hills was first published in 1936. This is a 1962 edition of the desirable Jonathan Cape format.

    Octavo, 284 pages with the super decorative illustrations by Edward Shenton. Green cloth covered boards with “game’ gilt design to front. Top edge stained green as required of this edition. A few dust jacket light chips and age otherwise a very copy of a hard to find item.

    A piece of non-fiction regarding Hemingway’s safari to Africa in December 1933 with his wife Pauline. First criticised by reviewers and then lauded as the best African safari book ever written … Hemingway never forgave them as he thought they had killed the book.

    Set in Tanzania and up the Great Rift Valley. Hemingway describes the lure of the hunt, the landscape and beauty of the wilderness like never before. Intermingled with conversations and views on writers and his writing. It is in this book that he set Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain as the greatest piece of American literature … but not without qualification.

    Carries a special appreciation for “J P” i.e. Jackson Philip who was Philip Hope Percival who was his guide. Percival was the inspiration behind the character Robert Wilson in his later short story “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber”

    Green Hills of Africa – true Hemingway

  • 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.

  • An Egyptian Journal – William Golding

    An Egyptian Journal – William Golding

    A first US edition by Nobel Prize winning William Golding, published by Faber and Faber in 1985.

    Golding’s first novel “Lord of the Flies” a Voyager favourite … strange because originally rejected by Faber and, despite his first, surely significantly .behind his Nobel award … which arrived in 1983 just before the publication of this adventure in Egypt. Aussies will know his Rites of Passage and the other parts of what was a superb trilogy … made into a classic screenplay with Benedict Cumberbatch as the protagonist.

    An unusual and interesting book, a no nonsense account … Golding only needed to please one person … himself. So we quite like his honest views of everything Egyptian on the tour … not done in grand style but in the fashion of any honest adventurer.

    Larger octavo, 207 pages, illustrated with interesting titling .. a very good copy.

    A very different Egypt travel account by the talented irascible sarcastic observant Golding

  • 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.
