        Winner Take Nothing

      1933 - Signed. HEMINGWAY, Ernest.Winner Take Nothing.New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933.First edition of Hemingway’s famed collection of short stories, an especially rare presentation/association copy warmly inscribed by Hemingway in Paris the day after publication to his close friend, journalist Guy Hickok, "To Guy with much affection, Ernest, Paris Oct 28, 1933." Hemingway and Hickok, bureau chief of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, shared a love of "boxing, horse racing, human interest stories, and tall tales. Ernest never crossed the Seine without dropping in at the sign of the Eagle" and their trip across in Italy in 1927 inspired Hemingway's short story, "Che Ti Dice la Patria," this rare copy also with the bookseller ticket of Sylvia Beach's famed Paris bookshop, Shakespeare and Company, where Hemingway "had a chance to see the first copies of Winner Take Nothing, which had just been shipped over by Scribner’s. He liked the jacket, which he had not seen before" (My Brother, 139). This extremely rare presentation first edition of Winner Take Nothing possesses an especially memorable association in Hemingway's inscription—dated in Paris the day after publication—to Guy Hickok, "one of Hemingway's closest friends in Paris" (Montgomery Review 25:1, 112). The two first met when Hemingway, new to Paris, attended meetings of the Anglo-American Press Club. Hickok, head of the Paris bureau of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, impressed Hemingway with his knowledge of fine food, sports and French wines. "Hickok's neat black mustache was impressive too, and during a visit to Germany in the summer of 1922 Hemingway more than matched it" (Lynn, 122). The two also shared a keen interest "in boxing, horse racing, human interest stories, and tall tales. Ernest never crossed the Seine without dropping in at the sign of the Eagle in the Boulevard de la Madeleine. Laughter was always skyrocketing through the smoke-filled rooms" (Baker, 87). In 1927 Hemingway and Hickok set off on a tour of Italy. "In late March, in Hickok's battered Ford coupe, the two travelers crossed the border into Italy at Ventimiglia, traveling down the Riviera to Genoa In a village 20 kilometers above La Spezia, a self-assured young Fascist, disdainful of foreigners, commandeered a ride Hemingway described the young man in sardonic terms in an article, 'Italy, 1927,' first published as a straight journalistic account in The New Republic (May 18, 1927) and five months later as a short story, retitled 'Che Ti Dice la Patria?' [in Men Without Women]z' Hemingway's chilling glimpse into Fascism also highlighted a comic encounter when "a chummy whore assaulted the uncomfortable Guy Hickok with her obvious charms." Hickok and Hemingway were also frequent correspondents, with Hemingway writing Hickok of his pride in A Farewell to Arms [1929]—"It's a swell book—I'm damned if it's not," and describing Death in the Afternoon (1932) as "'my bloody book' It was a good book, he assured Hickok. 'Really maybe the best one yet' Hickok, who took pride in Hemingway's later success and admired Hemingway's ambition, furthered Hemingway's legend by writing articles about him and his wartime exploits for the Eagle" (Mellow, 346-7, 377, 414, 174). This exceptional presentation/association copy also contains the distinct bookseller ticket of Sylvia Beach's famed Paris bookshop, Shakespeare and Company. "For 20 years Hemingway was a prominent player in the history of Shakespeare and Company To the delight of Sylvia, Hemingway arrived in Paris the evening of 26 October [1933] and came to see her the next morning. 'He and I are good old friends,' she declared in a letter 'He looks fine and handsome'" (Fitch, 117, 341). Ernest's brother, Leicester, would recall: "At Sylvia Beach's bookshop Ernest had a chance to see the first copies of Winner Take Nothing, which had just been shipped over by Scribner's. He liked the jacket, which he had not seen before since he'd had to correct proofs by cable and had be [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Moreover, his relationship to his brother Myachislav has become worn-out since Myachislav had crossed all boundaries between brothers: "[.] We had no family relationship from our earliest years onwards, but now it has reached a level of indecency which is no longer sustainable [.] He is thoroughly an official, and although he knows the situation in which I find myself, he has not left me a single piece of bread or sugar [.] and accuses me of having caused material damage to him by preventing him from marriage [.]" (transl.). - Small pinhole, touching one letter, but without loss of text.

        A Game-Book for Burma and Adjoining Territories;

      London: H. F. & G. Witherby,, 1933. the Types, Distribution and Habits of Large and Small Tracking, Still-hunting and the Care and Measurements of Trophies. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles spine gilt, double rule to front board blind, bottom edge untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Photographic frontispiece with tissue guard, 25 similar plates, folding map. Spine sunned, faints marking to boards, dust jacket rather rubbed but a very good copy with text and plates in excellent condition. First edition, first impression. An extensive survey derived from the author's career in Burma as a deputy game warden. Of the habits of the Malay bear, for instance, he writes: "I obtained a cub which remained with me to the age of about two years, when it died…[it was] strongly attached to my dog…It used to follow my servants into town and was a perfectly harmless and lovable animal". Entries correspond to individual species and contain sections describing inter alia the animal's physical appearance and, for the hunter's practical needs, the trophies that one could expect to gain from a kill. Very uncommon in this condition with the dust jacket.
