Catalogue Note

presentation copy inscribed by hemingway regarding the endowment of the publisher's bull logo: "To Logan Clendenning this bull [with arrow pointing to logo] as originally conceived by Scribners artist had neither balls nor anything else and looked rather like a lesbian cow — under Papa's protests they hung him a little heavier but what the hell — it's all literature one week and shit the next. E.H."

The author's second book of short stories and one of the most influential of the twentieth century. It includes such masterpieces of the genre as "The Killers," "Hills Like White Elephants" and "In Another Country." Far surpassing the anemic sales of the preceding collection In Our Time, the first printing of 7,650 copies was quickly exhausted with 15,000 copies being sold in three months. The present is the first reprint.
