In Our Time

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1930. First edition thus, Third Overall. A Fine copy of the book with just a few old bookseller notations to the rear end paper. In a strong Near Fine dust jacket with just a bit of fading to the spine and a few trivial nicks to the edges of the jacket.

Having got hold of a copy, F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote immediately to Maxwell Perkins: “This is to tell you about a young man named Ernest Hemmingway [sic]… its remarkable & I’d look him up right away. He’s the real thing” (10 October 1924). In Our Time earned Hemingway a place beside Sherwood Anderson and Gertrude Stein among the most promising American writers of the time, and is today considered one of the most original short story collections in 20th-century literature.
