Sun Also Rises (German)
1928 - HEMINGWAY, Ernest. Fiesta [The Sun Also Rises]. Berlin: Ernst Rowohlt, 1928. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jacket. $20,000.First edition in German, Hemingway's own copy with his ownership signature on the front free endpaper, presentation copy additionally inscribed and signed by him on the title page, "For Frazer [sic] Bragg Drew wishing him good luck always, Ernest Hemingway. It's hard to keep books in decent condition in a country where they have hurricanes. These books are all survivors." As a young teacher, Drew wrote a letter to which Hemingway responded with uncharacteristic kindness, signing six of Drew's books and presenting him with six more "as an act of contrition" for taking so long to return the books. Hemingway then invited Drew to visit, and on April 8, 1955, one year after Hemingway won the Nobel Prize, they spent a long afternoon discussing literature, later recounted by Drew in his article "Unedited Notes on a Visit to Finca Vigia" (in Bruccoli, Conversations With Ernest Hemingway, 89-98). At the end of Drew's visit Hemingway said "Let's go up to the house and sign those books of yours." Hemingway inscribed all the books Drew had brought with him and presented him with many others from his own collection; this volume was undoubtedly one of the books presented and inscribed by Hemingway that day. The Sun Also Rises first published in English in 1926. Grissom, 698. Bookplate of Fraser Drew. Publisher's postcard laid in.Scattered light foxing to text; scarce original dust jacket with mild toning to spine and extremities, only minor shallow chipping to spine ends. An extremely good copy with a wonderful Hemingway inscription. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
