The Sun Also Rises

by HEMINGWAY, Ernest


New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1926. Octavo. Original black cloth, gold paper title label to upper board and spine printed in black. With the pictorial dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco drop down box. Title-page vignette by Cleonike Damianakes. Mild partial browning to the endpapers, bookplate to front pastedown, cloth rather marked in lower portions, spine label a little cracked but a very good copy in the torn and professionally repaired dust jacket silked on the verso. Still a very attractive copy. First edition, first printing, first issue text, in first issue dust jacket, inscribed by Hemingway: "To Cuyler Stevens with all best wishes Ernest Hemingway" and with Stevens's bookplate on the front pastedown. Stevens was in the Princeton class of 1926, and a copy of Winner Take Nothing inscribed to Stevens was in the landmark Goodwin sale. "The Sun Also Rises did not rock the country, but it received a number of hat-in-the-air reviews and it soon became a handbook of conduct for the new generation... how much of the novel seems marvelously fresh as when it first appeared... It is all carved in stone, bigger and truer than life; and it is the work of a man who, having ended his busy term of apprenticeship, was already a master at twenty-six" (Malcolm Cowley, A Second Flowering, pp.70-73). First issue with the misprint "stoppped" for "stopped", p. 181, l. 26. The dust jacket, as called for by Hanneman, incorrectly cites Hemingway's earlier title as In Our Times.

The Sun Also Rises is the first major novel by Ernest Hemingway. The semi-autobiographical story centers around a group of American and British expatriates who travel to Pamplona to watch the running of the bulls and the legendary bullfights. The setting was unique and memorable, presenting the seedy café life of Paris, and the Pamplona festival, with a middle section devoted to fishing in the Pyrenees.  On the surface, it is a love story, but the main theme is the notion that the decadent lost generation was irretrievably damaged by the war.

  "This was the one book I never read from EH. I have to say it is an outstanding achievement of the human experience. What a book! Finishing it gives you a feeling of what's real, eternal and why our lives are full of contradictions. "
