Notes

First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author to the famously eccentric Sir Archibald Clark Kerr on the front free endpaper, "For Sir Archibald Clark Kerr wishing him all good things all his life from his friend Ernest Hemingway Rangoon April 21 - 1941". Kerr was the Australian-born British diplomat who was, at the time of the inscription, British Ambassador to China. On meeting Hemingway, Kerr is reported to have said of him, "Tough? Why, I'm tougher than he is!" Kerr would subsequently go on to become Ambassador to Moscow and then to Washington; he was present at all of the Big Three conferences.
