Green Hills Of Africa
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935 Decorated by Edward Shenton. First edition, first printing. Publisher's bright green cloth, with Hemingway's signature stamped to the front board in gilt, black spine labels, lettered and decorated in gilt; in the original black and green dust jacket, lettered in white. Very good, with some toning to the spine and board edges, bright gilt, a few faint spots to the endpapers, otherwise fresh interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some rubbing and minor chipping to the extremities, fading to the spine as usual, some creasing and light rubbing to the otherwise fresh panels. Overall, a tight and very presentable copy. Hanneman A13a. Originally published serially in Scribner's Magazine, Green Hills of Africa is Hemingway's second non-fiction book, based on his 1933 safari in East Africa. The text is divided into four parts: "Pursuit and Conversation," "Pursuit Remembered," "Pursuit and Failure," and "Pursuit as Happiness." In a similar style to his first non-fiction work, Death in the Afternoon, Hemingway interweaves his recounts of hunting various animals with his vehement criticisms of contemporary authors. As John Chamberlain wrote in his 1935 review for The New York Times, "With one hand he tears out the entrails of a gazelle and strips the skin clean; with the other he rips the hide from Malcom Cowley or Waldo Frank. It is the most literary hunting trip on record.". Illus. by Shenton, Edward. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.
