First Edition, First Printing
We are thrilled to have a UK first edition, first printing of one of our favourite books of all time in stock. A book that to many needs no introduction. One of the most simple yet magnificent stories ever written. The tale of an old man and his duel with a giant fish.
This wonderful first edition, published in 1952, is in excellent condition with no markings or inscriptions. It comes with the original dust jacket which has not been price clipped, and shows the original price of 7s. 6d.
The dust jacket is also in very good condition for its age, with just some minor tears to top and bottom edges, as shown in photos.
A true first edition of a masterpiece by Ernest Hemingway, with the most beautiful cover design by Hans Tisdall.
More that a lovely book… this one is an heirloom.
