click for a larger image of item #26259, The Old Man and the Sea NY, Scribner, 1952. The last of Hemingway's books published in his lifetime, a novella that won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction and earned him, two years later, the Nobel Prize for literature. A short novel that has been characterized as a fable, it deals with a Cuban fisherman's struggles to land a giant marlin that he has hooked, and reflects Hemingway's concern for life as a struggle of man against nature, including his own nature. Owner name and offsetting to front endpages; otherwise near fine in a near fine, mildly sunned dust jacket with light wear to the spine ends, tape shadows to verso, offsetting to the front flap and a few pencil marks to the rear flap. [#026259] $1,450
click for a larger image of item #33458, Green Hills of Africa NY, Scribner, (1935). His second book of nonfiction, an account of a month-long hunting trip to Africa which he wrote "to see whether the shape of a country and the pattern of a month's action can, if truly presented, compete with a work of the imagination." Heavy sunning to the cloth as is typical with this title; small tear at the crown; a very good copy in a very good, price-clipped dust jacket with several edge tears and the usual fading to the green block on the spine. [#033458] $500
