Life Magazine, September 1, 1952
New York: Time, Inc. 1952 - Volume 33, Number 9. Illustrated with two-tone teal and black drawings by Noel Sickles. Precedes the first Scribner's book edition by one week. Near fine, with some light wear to the spine, a few minor spots to the wrappers, some residue from a removed mailing label to the front panel, else very bright and clean. A fresh and sturdy copy. The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most popular and widely acclaimed novels, first printed in this edition of Life a week before the first book edition was published by Charles Scribner's Sons. This serial edition also includes illustrations by Noel Sickles, the American cartoonist and illustrator best known for his comic strip Scorchy Smith. In addition to winning the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, The Old Man and the Sea is accredited with being a major contributor to Hemingway's 1954 Nobel Prize in Literature. The plot tells of elderly protagonist Santiago, a fisherman, and his struggle with a giant Marlin off the coast of Havana, Cuba. Metaphorically, it is the story of Hemingway's own struggle to continue to write and preserve his art in spite of his fame and the cost it had taken on his mental and physical health; like Santiago who had not caught a fish in months, Hemingway had not written a novel in over a decade. This award winning novel was Hemingway's last significant piece of writing before his death in 1961. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
