From among the New Arrivals: Hemingway, Ernest. THE SUN ALSO RISES. [New York]: Grosset & Dunlap, [N.D. but published 1930]. First Grosset & Dunlap Edition.
Hemingway’s great ‘Lost Generation’ novel about a group of American and British expatriates who travel from Paris to Spain. The pictorial jacket, which depicts a flapper in a sleeveless green dress, was reportedly Hemingway’s favorite among all his books, and he was quoted saying he preferred it to that of the original edition published by Scribner’s. A stunning copy of a key Hemingway title, and a high-point of Art Deco dustjacket design. Cited as one of Cyril Connolly’s 100 Key Books of the Modern Movement, and basis for the 1957 Henry King film starring Tyrone Power, Errol Flynn, and Ava Gardner.
