THE SUN ALSO RISES
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926. First edition. First printing with misprint "stoppped" on page 181. A finely bound copy in full blue morocco with gilt spine, stamping to boards and top edge; marbled end papers. Binding in excellent condition, internal contents Very Good with the occasional smudge or small stain. Hemingway's classic novel -- a Roman a clef about a group of American and British expats in Spain, centered around the characters of Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. It was based on Hemingway's own experiences in Spain in the 1920s, visiting there with his wife and friends and watching bullfighting. It is without question one of the great American novels -- perhaps the most important to depict The Lost Generation. The novel was an immense success - college students began to emulate the dress and manner of the characters and Hemingway was made a household name. Interestingly enough, the first printing of the novel was only around 5000 copies, but this, and a second printing of a few thousand copies, quickly sold out. " [Hemingway] writes as if he had never read anybody's writing, as if he had fashioned the art of writing himself." (Contemporary review in "The Atlantic").
