"Bits of Glass" in The John Burroughs Review, November 1925
[St. Louis], John Burroughs School, 1925. Poetry by the future novelist, journalist, and war correspondent (and third wife of Ernest Hemingway). Six poems, or stanzas, or "bits of glass," written during what would have been Gellhorn's senior year at the John Burroughs School, a decade before she met Hemingway and the two traveled to Spain to cover the Spanish Civil War together, beginning for Gellhorn more than half a century of covering wars and conflicts around the globe. A bit of corner staining to inner pages and smudges to covers; near fine in wrappers. Gellhorn also contributes, anonymously, to the section called the "Attic"; is listed on the Board of Editors; and contributes to the Editorials section done by members of the Board. Early appearances in print by a groundbreaking female journalist. [#032769] SOLD
