        The Old Man and the Sea

      New York: Charles Scribner's & Sons, 1952. First edition. Octavo, original light blue cloth. Near fine in an excellent first issue dust jacket with the blue tint and $3.00 price with light rubbing and wear to the extremities. Upon its publication in 1952 by Charles Scribner's Sons, The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction the following year and was cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Hemingway in 1954. The novel reinvigorated Hemingway's literary reputation. It initiated a reexamination of his entire body of work. The novel was received with such alacrity, that it restored many readers' confidence in Hemingway's capability as an author. Indeed, the publisher even wrote on an early dust jacket, calling the novel a "new classic," and it was compared by many critics to such revered works as William Faulkner's "The Bear" and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick.

        Men at Arms; Officers and Gentlemen and Unconditional Surrender [trilogy]

      Chapman and Hall, London; 1952, 1955 and 1961 - Octavo. First printings. The three volume trilogy of Evelyn Waugh's military novels, where he spent the war from start to finish as a junior officer engaged chiefly in ordinary regimental soldiering. He recounts the phases of a long love affair, full of vicissitudes, between a civilian and the Army. Men at Arms began with its hero inspired by illusion. Officers and Gentlemen ends with his deflation. Unconditional Surrender explains the mysterious origins of Ludovic, which were left doubtful before and completes the disillusionment of the hero, Guy Crouchback. A handsome and fine ser, all bound in blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, one tiny bump to one corner, in fine unclipped showing only very minute wear to head of Men at Arms. No names or plates, only one small bookseller's ticket to rear of one volume. Simply, an exceptional set. [Attributes: First Edition]
