Islands in the Stream. By Ernest Hemingway. First Edition, First Printing. Scribners. New York, 1970.

$150.00

Islands in the Stream follows Thomas Hudson, a typical Hemingway protagonist–stoic, adventurous, brooding–who attempts to isolate himself in the Caribbean, but ultimately becomes embroiled in a hunt for Nazi exiles after WWII. It was written in 1950, at a time when Hemingway’s career and ego were bruised by the poor critical response to Across the River and into the Trees. Perhaps for that reason it is a quintessential Hemingway novel, full of overt masculine tropes, but also excellent prose and characterization. Published posthumously, it is often cited as an overlooked classic in Hemingway’s canon.

This first edition, first printing is in near fine condition. In the original green cloth boards, near fine with only spot to front board. Text block near fine, only soiling and rubbing to edges. In the original dust jacket, very good, only rubbing to corners and price clipped. This is a true first edition, indicated by the publisher code A-9.70(V) on the copyright page.

A near fine first edition of Islands in the Stream.
