HEMINGWAY, Ernest.

Rare books by Ernest Hemingway, including first edition, signed first edition, and finely bound copies of The Sun Also Rises, and, A Farewell to Arms.

Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961) was an American novelist and war correspondent famous for the stark realism of his work. Raised in Illinois, he served as an ambulance driver on the Italian front during the First World War and then became a foreign correspondent in Paris. There he joined the “Lost Generation” of artists and writers and in 1923 published his first book, Three Stories and Ten Poems.

  1. Collection of 39 books from his personal library, retrieved by his friends and agents, the Bruce family.
    signed

    Collection of 39 books from his personal library, retrieved by his friends and agents, the Bruce family.

    Including books given to Hemingway as Christmas and birthday presents and inscribed to him by his parents and close relatives.
    The collection includes 39 books from Ernest Hemingway's personal library, including nine books signed by Hemingway, and 18 books inscribed to Hemingway from family and fellow authors and editors. Many are from childhood and young adolescence, yet some track across Hemingway's travels in Spain, Paris, and back to the United States. Due to the books' storage at Sloppy Joe's Saloon—a storied, seedy bar in Key West frequented by Hemingway, and owned by a figure who inspired the protagonist of To Have and Have Not—they bear significant damage to their exterior covers, though the interior content is often in quite good condition.

  3. In Our Time.

    In Our Time.

    First American edition, first printing. The New York version of In Our Time is a radically different book from the much shorter Paris version published the year before, which consisted of just 32 pages and contained only the vignettes later used as interchapters in the New York version. Hemingway's American debut contains such well-known stories as the Nick Adams stories "Indian Camp," "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife," "The Three Day Blow," and "The Battler", and introduces readers to the hallmarks of the Hemingway style.
