  • Rare and Iconic photograph of Ernest Hemingway with best friend and biographer A.E. Hotchner; inscribed by Hemingway to Hotchner

    HEMINGWAY, Ernest. [A.E. Hotchner].

    Ernest Hemingway Signed Photograph.

    Rare and iconic photograph of Ernest Hemingway with his best friend and biographer A.E. Hotchner hunting fowl. Inscribed by Ernest Hemingway to Hotchner, “To Hotch from his pal Mr. Papa.” Hemingway first met Aaron Edward Hotchner in the late 1940s when Hotchner was sent to Cuba by Cosmopolitan to solicit from Hemingway an article on “The Future of Literature.” Hemingway took an immediate liking to Hotchner and they remained close friends; Hotchner edited the manuscript of Across the River and Into the Trees, acted as Hemingway’s agent in several deals concerning screen adaptations of his novels, and edited Hemingway’s last significant original work, The Dangerous Summer. Hotchner played an essential role in trimming the excessive manuscript of 120,000 words (for the assignment which called for a 10,000-word article) down to 50,000 words and The Dangerous Summer proved to be Hemingway’s last significant original work, published in book form posthumously in 1985. In 1966 Hotchner published his profound and intimate biography, Papa Hemingway, which would go on to become a bestseller. From the personal collection of A.E. Hotchner. In fine condition. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 15.75 inches by 12.75 inches. Exceptionally rare and desirable.

    Ernest Hemingway Autograph Letter Excerpt Signed.

    Chicago: The Walden Book Shop, 1930.

    Rare letter excerpt boldly signed by Ernest Hemingway. Published by the Walden Book Shop in 1930, the introduction begins "The following notes are excerpts from a Hemingway letter in answer to questions concerning editions and numbers of copies." It goes on to provide a long italicized quote from the letter in which Hemingway describes the printings of his early books from Three Stories and Ten Poems through the forthcoming Men Without Women (1927). The quote reads, in part: “…The books have been Three Stories and Ten Poems, Contact Press, 1953-350 copies out of print, In Our Times, Three Mountains Press, 1924, 150, I think…They claim to be issuing a new edition. Then Scribners published The Torrents of Spring in the spring of 1926 in an unrestrained edition and The Sun Also Rises came out in the same year with, I believe an attempt made to print and sell as many as possible…I own one copy of Three Stories and Ten Poems and would be very happy if it became valuable in order that I might have something to leave to my children.” Signed by Hemingway in he lower right corner of the pamphlet. In fine condition. Double matted and framed with a portrait of Hemingway. The entire piece measures 26 inches by 17 inches. An exceptional example.
