Hemingway image

Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
First edition of Three Stories & Ten Poems (1923)
Carter Burden Collection of American Literature at the Morgan Library
PML 128140
See CORSAIR catalog record for this item »

This copy of Hemingway's first book claims singularity by its provenance: it was this volume that Hemingway sent to Edmund Wilson in November 1923, asking for a review in The Dial. The book had appeared in Paris, where Hemingway was already well known in expatriate circles but had made little noise in the United States. Wilson read it immediately and responded warmly with a review that helped to make the young writer's reputation.
