New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1952.
Seventeenth Printing. Hardcover. Latest date to copyright page is 1952, but publisher's code of Q-8.59[H] indicates this is the seventeenth printing issued in August of 1959. 8 1/8" X 5 5/8". 140pp. Rather heavy wear to dust jacket with price of $3.00 to front flap. 3 1/4" tear at upper left edge of spine, 1 1/2" tear to both upper and lower right edges, small tears to edges and corners, faint foxing, and light scattered rubbing. Blue cloth over boards, with Hemingway's signature stamped in blind to upper board and spine lettered in silver. Moderate edgewear to binding, with faint rubbing and soiling to boards. Dust soiling to top edge of text block. Toning to endpapers. Previous owner's name and ex libris stamp to front free endpaper. Binding is firm and sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. An admittedly worn but overall still quite presentable early printing in dust jacket of Ernest Hemingway's Pulitzer Prize-winning novella, and specifically referenced by the Nobel Committee as contributing to Ernest Hemingway's winning of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. Good / fair. Item #6228
