Donald Ogden Stewart's Copy with a Photograph of Hadley and Bumby Tipped In

    Ernest Hemingway. In Our Time. Stories by Ernest Hemingway. New York: Boni & Liveright, 1925.

    First edition. Donald Ogden Stewart's copy, with his initials on the front free endpaper. Octavo. 214 pages. With a period photograph of Hadley and Bumby Hemingway tipped in, Ernest's first wife and first child.

    Publisher's black cloth with gilt titles and rules. Moderate wear to the boards, with the spine sunned and somewhat dull. Corners lightly rubbed. Minor offsetting to pages 106-107 from previously inserted ephemera, no longer present. Very occasional foxing. A very good copy.

    Donald Ogden Stewart was an author, playwright and screenwriter, and member of the Algonquin Round Table. His famous friends included Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, and Ernest Hemingway. Stewart was, in fact, the model for the character, Bill Gorton, in Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. More apropos to this title, Stewart was instrumental in getting In Our Time published. He introduced Hemingway to the publisher Boni & Liveright and brought the original manuscript to them.

    "In 1924, Stewart fished, drank, and attended bullfights with Hemingway in Spain... Stewart helped get Hemingway's In Our Time published in New York in 1925 and became the model for Bill Gorton in Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises (1926)" (Robert L. Gale: An F. Scott Fitzgerald Encyclopedia, p. 399).

    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.
