Hemingway, Ernest
A Farewell To Arms.
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1929. First edition of this early Hemingway classic, which established him among the American masters. Octavo, original black cloth. Near fine in a near fine first state dust jacket with the misspelling "Katharine Barclay" in the blurb on the front flap. A nice example. Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefield—weary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion—this gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms thirty-nine times to get the words right. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
