Winner Take Nothing

London: Jonathan Cape, 1934. Cloth. An impressive, well-preserved copy of the 1934 1st UK edition of Hemingway's 3rd published collection of short stories. Tight and VG (spotting along the front panel's top-edge and along the outer hinges) in a crisp, price-intact ("7s. 6d. net"), VG+ dustjacket, with just a bit of very light chipping along the spine crown and a touch of minor soiling at the panels. 12mo, includes the 1st British appearance of "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" and 13 other short stories by one of the century's great practitioners of the form. Also includes an original, of-the-period, laid-in Jonathan Cape order form for a new London periodical called "Now and Then", which "gives independent reviews of new books, information about forthcoming publications, notes of reprints; also news and photographs of authors whose work is published by Joathan Cape." Very Good / Very Good +. Item #23071
