    In the Original First Issue Dust Jacket

    Ernest Hemingway. A Farewell to Arms. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929. First trade edition, second printing, with the legal disclaimer on p. [x]. With the correct first issue jacket (the name of the heroine, Catherine Barkley is misspelled "Katharine Barclay" on the front flap). Octavo. [x], 355, [3, blank] pages. Publisher's original black cloth with gold paper labels ruled and lettered in black on front cover and spine, dust jacket. Jacket spine browned and chipped (at headcap with some loss of text), some toning, chipping, wear and a few short tears to jacket panels, some rubbing to binding, a few text pages mildly creases. Overall, a very good copy.

    More Information:

    Cyril Connolly named this title as one of the most important modern books in his list, The Modern Movement. This is one of the most famous novels concerning the tragedy of World War I, and was inspired by Hemingway's own experiences as an ambulance driver during the war.
