    Ernest Hemingway Signed March, 1930 Edition of Fortune Magazine. (New York: Time, Inc., 1930), 152 pages, folio (11.25" x 14"). Hemingway began his career as a reporter for the Kansas City Star, and continued to write nonfiction articles for periodicals and newspapers for the balance of his life. In this edition of Fortune, Hemingway published an article on one of his favorite subjects: bullfighting. The article, called "Bullfighting, Sport and Industry", begins on page 83 of the magazine and is signed "Ernest Hemingway" at the right of the title. Just two years later, Hemingway would publish his famous collection on bullfighting, Death in the Afternoon. The magazine is in very good condition, with some rubbing to the covers, and very minimal foxing to the beginning and end of the text. This is a truly rare opportunity to get a Hemingway signature on a bullfighting piece from very early in his writing career.
