Notes

An original photograph of Ernest Hemingway and his friends by the renowned Spanish photographer Paco Cano (1912-2016), inscribed by Hermingway in black ink: "El Papa peregrino and Val with our gang - in maravilloso Espectaculo - Viva España - Nunca Basta. Your friend Ernesto Hemingway". Cano has signed the photograph at the base, alongside his stamp and another signature on the verso. The photograph was taken during Hemingway's final visit to his beloved Spain from May 1959 to October 1960, while on assignment for Life magazine about the rise of the bullfighter Antonio Ordonez, the text of which was posthumously published in 1985 as The Dangerous Summer. Despite the cheerful inscription, Hemingway's biographer Kenneth S. Lynn records that Hemingway spent almost the entire trip inebriated, and a couple of years later he took his own life, in large part due to the depression and maladies brought about by his alcoholism (Lynn, Hemingway, 1995).
