  • 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.

    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.

    Islands in the Stream – Ernest Hemingway – First Edition 1970

    This is the first UK edition published by Collins, London in 1970.

    Large octavo, 398 pages with end paper maps. Very good if not better condition.

    A major novel left among Hemingway’s writings at the time of death. Mary Hemingway said “The book is all Ernest’s. We have added nothing to it” … we believe her …
