Description                           Estimate: $600+          

Desirable unsigned book: The Old Man and the Sea. First edition, first printing (with “A” and Scribner’s seal on copyright page); in original dust jacket (with $3.00 price intact). NY: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1952. Hardcover with dust jacket, 5.75 x 8.25, 140 pages. Book condition: VG/VG. Written during a two-month span in 1951, The Old Man and the Sea was published in a limited run of 50,000 copies in September of 1952. In conjunction with its wildly popular publication in Life Magazine, the novella earned immediate critical and commercial success, reaffirming Hemingway’s place as a novelist, and subsequently rewarding him with both the Pulitzer and Nobel Peace Prize. A definitive piece of the American literary canon.
