Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) was an American author whose distinctive writing style noted for brevity and understatement was somewhat at odds with Hemingway’s penchant for adventure and acclaim in his personal life. Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, Hemingway stated in his acceptance speech that the writer “does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day”. For your consideration is this 1927 second printing of the First Edition of Hemingway’s powerfully written love story: The Sun Also Rises.

Condition notes: Good+. This octavo, measuring 7 ¾ inches by 5 inches, is bound in gilt labeled black cloth. Light rubbing to boards, light fading to spine, back hinge cracked. The overall tenor of the text in this early printing of Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises is very good.
