ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES. Ernest Hemingway.

ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1950. First Edition. Hardcover. First edition, first printing in the second issue dust jacket. Widely regarded as an unconscious parody of his earlier work, this novel was based on Hemingway's experiences as a war correspondent and irregular soldier in France during World War II, and immediately preceded The Old Man and the Sea (1952), the work that led to his receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. Octavo. Original black cloth binding, with gilt titles. Very light bumping to the bottom corners. Some general edgewear to the dust jacket, with a few old cellophane tape repairs to the verso; otherwise very good. Hanneman A23a. Very Good / Very Good. Item #73387

Price: $150.00
