In Our Time

HEMINGWAY, Ernest

HEMINGWAY, Ernest In Our Time

Three Mountains Press, 1924.

First edition, number 137 of 170 copies. Original paper covered boards printed in red with titles in black. Woodcut portrait frontispiece of the author by Henry Strater. A near fine copy, bright and crisp, with a little wear to the corners of the spine.

Hemingway's second book, published in an edition of only 170 copies, being the final part of a series of books published by the Three Mountains Press under the editorship of Ezra Pound, entitled 'The Inquest into the state of contemporary English prose'. 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 Hemingway [sic]… its remarkable + I'd look him up right away. He's the real thing." (10th October 1924)
The fragile nature of this production means copies have not generally worn well, so copies as well preserved as this are very seldom encountered.
