Fifth Column and four unpublished stories of the Spanish Civil War.
A Near Fine copy with previous owner inscription on flyleaf in a Near Fine price-clipped dust jacket. These five works grew, of course, out of Hemingway's considerable experience of the Spanish war as a correspondent for the North American Newspaper Alliance and as a participant in filming "The Spanish Earth." More specifically, they grew from adventures in and around besieged Madrid--particularly in the Hotel Florida and in a bar called Chicote's. The book is unified, then, in time, place, and action. It is unified even more by the dominating presence of the author, who is to be found alive on every page. That presence slants the focus, but also gives the book its sharp distinction. This is immediate, unmistakable Hemingway. This collection contains Hemingway's play "The Fifth Column", and the four stories "The Denunciation", The Butterfly and the Tank", "Night Before Battle" and "Under the Ridge". Despite his fascination with warfare and his cheerful wit, he is also trying to tell us that war is hell. (All the good themes are old stuff.) And if he fails to break our hearts, exactly, his stories reach deep enough to touch them.

In Our Time: A Facsimile Edition.
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."

This posthumously published novel tells the story of a young American writer in Paris who has just published his second novel, is on an extended honeymoon on the French coast, the woman the couple is attracted to, and the erotic games the three of them play. The theme of bisexuality is the major reason this novel was published 24 years after Hemingway's death. The true test of the worthiness of this work of fiction however is do the story, the characters and the writing hold up as a work by Hemingway? And the answer is "yes."

The Letters of Ernest Hemingway: 1923-1925. Edited by Sandra Spanier, Albert J. Defazio III & Robert W. Trogdon.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine dust jacket. Volume 2 (1923-1925) illuminates Hemingway's literary apprenticeship in the legendary milieu of expatriate Paris in the 1920s. We witness the development of his friendships with the likes of Sylvia Beach, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and John Dos Passos. Striving to 'make it new,' he emerges from the tutelage of Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein to forge a new style, gaining recognition as one of the most formidable talents of his generation. In this period, Hemingway publishes his first three books, including In Our Time (1925), and discovers a lifelong passion for Spain and the bullfight, quickly transforming his experiences into fiction as The Sun Also Rises (1926). The volume features many previously unpublished letters and a humorous sketch that was rejected by Vanity Fair.

The Letters of Ernest Hemingway: 1929-1931. Edited by Sandra Spanier and Miriam B. Mandel.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine dust jacket. The Letters of Ernest Hemingway, Volume 4, spanning April 1929 through 1931, featuring many previously unpublished letters, records the establishment of Ernest Hemingway as an author of international renown following the publication of A Farewell to Arms. Breaking new artistic ground in 1930, Hemingway embarks upon his first and greatest non-fiction work, his treatise on bullfighting, Death in the Afternoon. Hemingway, now a professional writer, demonstrates a growing awareness of the literary marketplace, successfully negotiating with publishers and agents and responding to fan mail. In private we see Hemingway's generosity as he provides for his family, offers support to friends and colleagues, orchestrates fishing and hunting expeditions, and sees the birth of his third son. Despite suffering injuries to his writing arm in a car accident in November 1930, Hemingway writes and dictates an avalanche of letters that record in colorful and eloquent prose the eventful life and achievements of an enormous personality.

This collection of 24 stories featuring Hemingway's alter-ego Nick Adams finally puts the stories in chronological order with the addition of eight pieces previously unpublished and provide a more comprehensive view of of Nick's early life and his development as a writer. Until now, however, the stories involving Nick have always appeared so many to a book, in jumbled sequence. As a result the coherence of his adventures has been obscured, and their impact fragmented. In Men Without Women, Hemingway's second collection of stories, Nick appears first as a soldier in Italy, next as an adolescent in Summit, Illinois, then in turn as a younger boy in Michigan, a married man in Austria, and a soldier back in Italy. Or consider the trouble with "Big Two-Hearted River," one of the best-known Hemingway stories. Placed where it was -- at the end of In Our Time, the first collection -- it puzzled a good many readers. Put where it goes chronologically, following the stories of World War I, its submerged tensions -- the impression that Nick is exorcising some nameless anxiety -- become perfectly understandable. But "A Way You'll Never Be," which precedes "Big Two-Hearted River" in time and explains it, was published eight years and several books after it. Arranged in chronological sequence, the events of Nick's life make up a meaningful narrative in which a memorable character grows from child to adolescent to soldier, veteran, writer, and parent -- a sequence closely paralleling the events of Hemingway's own life. In this arrangement Nick Adams, who for a long time was not widely recognized as a consistent character at all, emerges clearly as the first in a long line of Hemingway's fictional selves. Later versions, from Jake Barnes and Frederic Henry to Richard Cantwell and Thomas Hudson, were all to have behind them part of Nick's history and, correspondingly, part of Hemingway's.

To Have and Have Not.
A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with just a hint of wear to the head of the spine. To Have and Have Not was Hemingway's second novel set in the United States, after The Torrents of Spring. Written sporadically between 1935 and 1937, and revised as he traveled back and forth from Spain during the Spanish Civil War, To Have and Have Not portrays Key West and Cuba in the 1930s, and provides a social commentary on that time and place. Hemingway biographer Jeffrey Meyers describes the novel as heavily influenced by the Marxist ideology Hemingway was exposed to by his support of the Republican faction in the Spanish Civil War while he was writing it. The novel had its origins in two short stories published earlier in periodicals by Hemingway ("One Trip Across" and "The Tradesman's Return") which make up the opening chapters, and a novella, written later, which makes up about two-thirds of the book. The narrative is told from multiple viewpoints, at different times, by different characters, and the characters' names are frequently supplied under the chapter headings to indicate who is narrating that chapter.

Hemingway on the China Front: His WWII Spy Mission with Martha Gellhorn.
A Fine tight, unread copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. In 1941, the U.S. Treasury Department hired Ernest Hemingway as a spy in China . Hemingway and his new wife Martha Gellhorn had no idea of what they would discover when they set out for Hong Kong, China, and Burma while honeymooning in the exotic Far East. "Hemingway on the China Front" is the first book to track Hemingway’s progress as a spy in Asia during the war, defining his duties as he saw fit. Peter Moreira follows Hemingway and Gellhorn as they seek stories to file for two different magazines—and try to adapt to each other’s strong egos—in dangerous, uncomfortable, exotic places in the throes of war. This is the first and only in-depth study of Hemingway's spy activities in China during Sino-Japanese war in the early months preceding America's war with Japan.

[Hemingway, Ernest] Ondaatje, Christopher.
Hemingway in Africa: The Last Safari.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. Hemingway went on only two African safaris in a lifetime of traveling (1933-1934 and 1953-1954), but both were vivid, pivotal experiences. The first inspired his famous stories "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" and "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber" and his bestseller Green Hills of Africa; the latter trip inspired two posthumous works, The Garden of Eden and True at First Light. Ondaatje follows the faded trail of Hemingway's safaris in Kenya and Tanzania (then Tanganyika) and puts them in the context of his works and those of other African writers, such as Isak Dinesen and Beryl Markham (whose work Hemingway championed). Although Papa's tracks are fainter in contemporary Africa than in Cuba and Paris, Ondaatje, an old hand on sub-Saharan Africa, has as observant an eye as Hemingway's for the land's beauty and a better one for its residents-which he complements with his photography. By the time of Hemingway's second visit, the era of the traditional colonial safari was closing, just as his own career was. While the opening description in "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" of a leopard carcass on the mountain's highest slopes concluded, "No one has explained what the leopard was seeking at that altitude," Ondaatje possesses a sympathetic insight into what Hemingway was without falling prey to the myth. 98 sepia photos and 3 maps.

Even as Hemingway graced the cover of Life magazine, his physical and mental health deteriorated while his public image as hunter and sportsman continued to demand the strenuous life.

Hemingway at War. Ernest Hemingway's Adventures as a World War IIcCorrespndent.
A Fine unread copy in a Fine dust jacket. In the spring of 1944, Hemingway traveled to London and then to France to cover World War II for Colliers Magazine. He flew missions with the RAF (in part to gather material for a novel); he went on a landing craft on Omaha Beach on D-Day; he went on to involve himself in the French Resistance forces in France and famously rode into the still dangerous streets of liberated Paris. And he was at the German Siegfried line for the horrendous killing ground of the Huertgen Forest, in which his favored 22nd Regiment lost nearly every man they sent into the fight. After that tragedy, it came to be argued, he was never the same.

[Hemingway] Reynolds, Michael S.
Hemingway: The Paris Years.
A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. This second volume in Reynolds' five volume Hemingway biography focuses on the writer's journeyman period in Paris where he honed his writing craft through his interactions with the other expatriates, the French milieu and the literary and cultural history of Europe. Reynolds exhaustively chronicles the particular literary influences on Hemingway, oftentimes even recounting the reading lists that the writer received from particular individuals. "Reading The Wasteland with Ezra Pound at one's elbow is no bad way to pick up a thing or two," he dryly observes at one point. He also pays close attention to Hemingway's conversations with, and studying the literature of, Pound, James Joyce, and particularly Gertrude Stein. Reynolds not only uses his extensive source material with a critical eye but provides a wealth of information about the social, political, and literary backgrounds of a time and place that were in many ways the dawn of the 20th century's intellectual tradition.

[Hemingway] Reynolds, Michael.
Hemingway: The 1930s.
A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. This fourth volume in Reynolds' five volume biographical series covers Hemingway's life and works from A Farewell to Arms to For Whom the Bell Tolls against the historical backdrop of the Cuban Revolution, African safaris, his residence in Key West and the Spanish Civil War. He experimented in fiction and nonfiction, pushing his limits as a writer, in such works as Death in the Afternoon, Green Hills of Africa, and To Have and Have Not. In this "masterpiece in the making," Reynolds brings us so close to Hemingway that "you can all but smell Hemingway's whisky breath coming off the pages"

[Paris in the 20s] Bruccoli, Matthew.
Fitzgerald and Hemingway: A Dangerous Friendship.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Using previously unpublished letters and other research material Matthew Bruccoli does much to deflate the mythical love/hate relationship between two of the literary giants of expatriate years in Paris. Bruccoli, who is a noted expert on the lives and works of these two writers, masterly analyses their jealousies, insecurities, and accomplishments. Hemingway and Fitzgerald first met in Paris in 1925, and Fitzgerald, who had already published The Great Gatsby, recommended Hemingway to his editor, Maxwell Perkins. Despite Fitzgerald's literary success, their relationship was based on his admiration for Hemingway, who was appalled by Fitzgerald's rocky marriage to Zelda and his lack of writing discipline. Bruccoli offers excerpts from Hemingway's letters to Fitzgerald and Perkins as evidence that Hemingway's unflattering portrait of Fitzgerald in A Moveable Feast was distorted. Although Fitzgerald's alcoholism strained their friendship, Bruccoli argues that Hemingway's intense dislike of Zelda, whom he blamed for her husband's heavy drinking, and his harsh criticism of Fitzgerald's writing also weakened the tie between them.

[Spanish Civil War] Vaill. Amanda.
Hotel Florida: Truth, Love, and Death in the Spanish Civil War.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Madrid, 1936. In a city blasted by a civil war six people meet and find their lives changed forever. Ernest Hemingway, his career stalled, his marriage sour, hopes that this war will give him fresh material and new romance; Martha Gellhorn, an ambitious novice journalist hungry for love and experience, thinks she will find both with Hemingway in Spain. Robert Capa and Gerda Taro, idealistic young photographers based in Paris, want to capture history in the making and are inventing modern photojournalism in the process. And Arturo Barea, chief of the Spanish government's foreign press office, and Ilsa Kulcsar, his Austrian deputy, are struggling to balance truth-telling with loyalty to their sometimes compromised cause?a struggle that places both of them in peril. Beginning with the cloak-and-dagger plot that precipitated the first gunshots of the war and moving forward month by month to the end of the conflict. Hotel Florida traces the tangled and disparate wartime destinies of these three couples against the backdrop of a critical moment in history: a moment that called forth both the best and the worst of those caught up in it. In this noir landscape of spies, soldiers, revolutionaries, and artists, the shadow line between truth and falsehood sometimes became faint indeed?your friend could be your enemy and honesty could get you (or someone else) killed.Years later, Hemingway would say, "It is very dangerous to write the truth in war, and the truth is very dangerous to come by." In Hotel Florida, from the raw material of unpublished letters and diaries, official documents, and recovered reels of film, the celebrated biographer Amanda Vaill has created a narrative of love and reinvention that is, finally, a story about truth: finding it, telling it, and living it?whatever the cost.
