First edition, first printing, of this major summarizing collection, the only one for which Hemingway made a critical selection for publication from his vast opus of short fiction: includes "In Our Time", "Men Without Women" and "Winner Take Nothing" among others, and prints four previously uncollected stories including "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber" and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro". Hemingway wrote "The Fifth Column", his only play, in Madrid while it was being bombarded during the Spanish Civil War. A lovely copy and rare in this condition.
