  • A Moveable Feast – Ernest Hemingway True First Edition -1964 – Predates American Edition by one day

    A Moveable Feast – Ernest Hemingway True First Edition -1964 – Predates American Edition by one day

    First edition published by Jonathan Cape, London in 1964. Octavo, 192 pages with the stunning wrap around dust jacket designed by Hans Tisdall. The font Tisdall invented for this purpose carries his name.

    Very good condition with minor mark to front of jacket, otherwise very clean and no dust jacket nibbles. Terrific internally.

    Written by Hemingway in his final days before he took his life so tragically. The draft was in his bedroom and published posthumously.

    Tells of Hemingway’s early years in Paris with his young bride (1921-1926) and the people (what people) he associated with … Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis, James Joyce, Scott Fitzgerald … do we need to go on?

    “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast”.

  • 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.
