Annotated Reference Guide to Collectible Books

Hemingway, Ernest

If you are considering collecting the great man of letters, then there is one emotion that you should immediately prepare yourself for: skepticism. This is because Hemingway’s books, although well-respected, have fallen prey to large amounts of signature forgery over the decades.

Ernest Hemmingway only published seven novels in his life, but he published many more short story collections, as well as earlier limited-run anthologies. These are probably the rarest of all Hemingway collectible books, featuring the likes of Three Stories and Ten Poems (1923) or in our time (1924, note that this early copy is without the capitalization of the 1925 and later editions).

Otherwise, the serious Hemmingway Collector will turn to the next two available sources, rare first editions of his more popular books Torrents of Spring (1926) and The Sun Also Rises (1926). If you are able to find a copy of either of these with a good dust jacket in good condition from these years, then you will undoubtedly will have a collectible masterpiece in your hands.

The next available source of collectible Hemmingway material would be his sporadic appearances in national magazines and periodicals, even such august publications as Playboy magazine (which, surprisingly enough, has had a number of established literary figures gracing its pages).
