The Sun Also Rises.
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1926. Octavo. Original black cloth, gold labels to spine and front board. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Title-page vignette by Cleonike Damianakes. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. A beautiful copy, spine a touch rolled, in the bright jacket, with a couple of small chips to spine ends, a few creases, nicks and slight rubbing, front flap price-clipped. First edition, first printing, the first issue with the misprints "stoppped" on p. 181, l. 26, "down-staris" on p. 169, line 34, and the third book being designated as "BOOK THREE" instead of "BOOK III" (p. [235]). With the first issue dust jacket which incorrectly cites Hemingway's earlier title as In Our Times, as called for by Hanneman. Hemingway's second novel is a roman à clef, drawing on his and Hadley's tumultuous time in France in the 1920s."The Sun Also Rises did not rock the country, but it received a number of hat-in-the-air reviews and it soon became a handbook of conduct for the new generation ... how much of the novel seems as marvelously fresh as when it first appeared! Count Mippipopolous, his wound, and his champagne; the old couple from Montana on their first trip abroad; the busload of Basque peasants; the whole beautiful episode of the fishing trip in the mountains, in the harsh sunlight, with bright water tumbling over the dam; then by contrast the dark streets of Pamplona crowded with riau-riau dancers, who formed a circle round Brett as if she were a revered witch — as indeed she was, and as Jake in a way was the impotent Fisher King ruling over a sterile land — in all this there is nothing that has gone bad and not a word to be changed after so many years. It is all carved in stone, bigger and truer than life; and it is the work of a man who, having ended his busy term of apprenticeship, was already a master at twenty-six".
