    Description

    First State with "Katherine Barclay" Misspelling

    Ernest Hemingway. A Farewell To Arms. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929.

    First edition, first state with "Katharine Barclay" misspelling on front inner flap, and without the legal disclaimer on page [x], as called for. Octavo. 355 pages.



    Publisher's smooth black cloth with gold paper labels, lettered and ruled in black. Top and bottom edges trimmed; fore-edge untrimmed. Lightly rubbed extremities. Offsetting to front endpapers, probably due to a clipping being laid in at one time. Very mild toning throughout. Dust jacket is moderately soiled and rubbed with a minor amount of material lacking from corners. A very good copy, much better than typically offered.

    Hanneman, p. 24.
