In Our Time: A Facsimile Edition.
by Hemingway, Ernest.
Bruccoli Clark Books,
A Fine tight copy in a Fine dust jacket. Hemingway's second book was originally published in 1924 by the Three Mountains Press in Paris in an edition of only 170 copies. This facsimile edition was issued in a limited edition of only 1700 copies. This is a Review copy and so stamped on the front flyleaf. The stories' themes – of alienation, loss, grief, separation – continue the work Hemingway began with the vignettes, which include descriptions of acts of war, bullfighting and current events. The collection is known for its spare language and oblique depiction of emotion, through a style known as Hemingway's "theory of omission" (Iceberg Theory). According to his biographer Michael Reynolds, among Hemingway's canon, "none is more confusing … for its several parts – biographical, literary, editorial, and bibliographical – contain so many contradictions that any analysis will be flawed."
