Item Number: 14200
American author. Signed book: A Farewell to Arms. Later printing. NY: Modern Library, 1932. Hardcover, 4.5" x 6.5" inches, 355 pages. Signed and inscribed on the dedication page, “To Helen Mauldin, with very best wishes, Ernest Hemingway.” A Farewell to Arms was Hemingway's semi-autobiographical first-person account of American Frederic Henry, serving as a Lieutenant in the ambulance corps of the Italian Army. Although set in war, the book is a essentially a love story between the young lieutenant bearing striking similarities to Hemingway, and a young British nurse. Both a commercial and critical success, which later became an acclaimed film. No dustjacket. Very good condition with a nice bold inscription and signature.
