New York: The Modern Library, 1930. First Edition. Early edition of Hemingway's second novel, one that became synonymous with the "Lost Generation." HANNEMAN A6b; CONNOLLY 100. First Printing. Octavo (16.75cm); variant bound in flexible maroon cloth boards (one of four variants, no established priority), with titling and decorations stamped in gilt on spine and front cover; maroon topstain; patterned endpapers; dustjacket; xii,259,pp. Handful of tiny scuffs to front cover, small check mark (in marker) to upper corner of front endpaper, else quite fresh; Near Fine. Dustjacket is deeply price-clipped, though the 95 cent price is still visible, with rear panel noting 170 titles printed on the verso, though our close count reveals 177 - presumably an early issue; gently spine-sunned, lightly edgeworn, with several tiny nicks and tears, and a two splits along front joint (neatly tape-mended on verso); Very Good.
