Notes

First edition, number 137 of 170 copies on Rives handmade paper. Hemingway's second book, published in an edition of only 170 copies, being the final part of a series of books published by the Three Mountains Press under the editorship of Ezra Pound, entitled 'The Inquest into the state of contemporary English prose'. Having got hold of a copy, F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote immediately to Maxwell Perkins: "This is to tell you about a young man named Ernest Hemmingway sic its remarkable & I'd look him up right away. He's the real thing" (10 October 1924).
The fragile nature of this production means copies have not generally worn well, so copies as well preserved as this are very seldom encountered.
