    First Edition in Original Dust Jacket

    Ernest Hemingway. To Have and Have Not. New York: Charles Scriber's Sons, 1937.

    First edition, with "A" and Scribner's seal on copyright page. Octavo. 262 pages.

    Publisher's black cloth with gilt and green stamping; Hemingway's facsimile signature in gilt to front board. Cloth lightly rubbed, with faint bloom to cloth, resulting in a somewhat vaguely smoky appearance. Moisture spot to front board. Top and bottom edges of boards rubbed. A very nice dust jacket (with $2.50 price) with a couple of small nicks to foot of jacket's spine and at edges of flap folds, and with some minor wear and shallow creases along edges. In a chemise and a custom gilt-stamped quarter leather book-backed slipcase. A sturdy, square copy in very good condition.

    Hemingway's only novel set in the United States, and his only novel of the 1930s.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
