The Old Man and the Sea: Advance Galley Proofs
New York: Chicago: Time, Inc. New York: Chicago: Time, Inc. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. ADVANCE GALLEY PROOFS, preceding the first printing in Life Magazine, of one of Hemingway's greatest works. Hemingway was awarded the 1954 Nobel Prize in Literature on the strength of The Old Man and the Sea, being cited "for his mastery of the art of narrative, most recently demonstrated in The Old Man and the Sea, and for the influence that he has exerted on contemporary style". Stamped "Advance Galley Proofs" on cover page and "Advance Galley Proofs For Your Personal Reading Only, LIFE Publication Date, Sept 1" above first page of text. Although it is believed that as many as 5000 galley proofs were issued, few copies of this fragile item have survived and complete sets are scarce on the market. [Chicago: Time, Inc., 1952]. 17 long (about 32 inches long) galley sheets with fold at center, stapled in the top left corner; custom silk box. Title sheet and final sheet off of staple, title sheet separated at fold with closed tear; a few small holes at fold extending into first few sheets (as often). An exceptionally nice copy of a difficult item to find in collectible condition.
