1 Hemingway, Ernest A Moveable Feast : Sketches of the Author's Life in Paris in the Twenties
New York Scribner's 1964 First Edition Hardcover 
Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Gray marbled boards quarterbound in brown cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in gilt. Octavo. Gray topstain and endpapers. 211pps. First Printing: A-3.64(H). The page-edges have a modest touches of dustspotting, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The price-clipped dust jacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light rubbing wear to the extremities and the rear white panel is a touch dulled and dustspotted. Overall, a clean, collector's-quality copy of this Hemingway classic.

"Ernest Hemingway left the world a generous legacy in these sketches of his early life in Paris in the Twenties. So complete is the spell of his art that the four decades between what was done and felt then and what was remembered and written later seems barely to have intervened. Everything is perceived directly through the eyes and ears of the young writer himself, living in the pre-dawn of world recognition.
The reader walks with him along the Paris streets, watching fishermen along the Seine or dropping by at Sylvia Beach's to borrow a book; returns with him (sometimes frugally skipping a meal) to the Hemingways' small apartment on the rue Notre-Dame-des-Champs with the sawmill in the courtyard below; sits by him in a cafe while paragraph by paragraph, scarcely looking up, he constructs one of the stories that created a new voice for the literature of our time.
It was a time of hunger and discipline and also one of fulfilment and happiness. We share taut days at the race-track at Enghien and happy, strenuous weeks skiing in the Vorarlberg in Austria. These chapters glow with the joy of recollection..."
