A fine copy and rare in an unrestored dust-jacket.
The first issue is identified by a mis-print on page 181. On line 26 the word "stopped" appears as "stoppped". The dust-jacket, as called for by Hanneman, incorrectly notes Hemingway as the author of In Our Times.
"The Sun Also Rises... soon became a handbook of conduct for the new generation... It is all carved in stone, bigger and truer than life; and it is the work of a man who, having ended his busy term of apprenticeship, was already a master at twenty-six..." (Malcolm Cowley, A Second Flowering).
