This is a rare collectible book in good condition; "The Sun Also Rises" by Ernest Hemingway. Published by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, originally in 1926. Original Cloth binding. This book is the first edition, third printing. The first two printings have errors that were been corrected in this printing.
The first printing of this book is priced between $12,000 and $60,000, depending on condition. The total 1st printing of this novel was 5090 copies, and by all appearances the first issue was much smaller than the corrected second issue. Hemingway's breakthrough book-which established him as a major author- conveyed the disillusionment of the American and British ex-pats in Europe after World War I, and the Gertrude Stein comment that he used as an epigraph-"You are all a lost generation- stuck". His book came to be viewed as the one that defined and embodied the Lost Generation. This book makes an lasting impression on anyone who recognizes it.
I will accept payment through paypal or via money order. Please add $4 for shipping unless you would like it to be expedited. For a single book it would be $6.
Thanks for looking.
