A Moveable Feast. By Ernest Hemingway. First Edition, First Printing. Scribner’s. New York, 1964.

$300.00

The basis for Hemingway’s classic memoir A Moveable Feast came from writings and letters he had drafted in the 1920s and stored in a trunk at the Ritz Hotel in Paris. The trunk miraculously survived in the hotel until 1956 when Hemingway retrieved it–after the Great Depression, WWII, and the majority of his literary career. Hemingway quickly saw promise in his old pages and began revising them into A Moveable Feast, but it wasn’t published until after his death. The work captures the expat experience in Paris with chapters that reference his fellow artists, major cultural events, and the overall mood of the city at the height of several groundbreaking artistic movements. It is widely considered some of Hemingway’s best prose. It is a classic of “fictional non-fiction” from the era.

This first edition, first printing is in very good condition. In the original quarter cloth boards, fine. Text block very good, only small glue tears to front endpaper. In the original dust jacket with price showing $4.95, very good with only minor chipping and some creases to edges.

A first edition of some of Hemingway’s best prose.
