Author: Ernest Hemingway
Title: The Old Man and the Sea
Publisher: Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York, 1952
Description of book: First US edition with all the correct points: 1952 stated on copyright and title page with the letter “A” and Scribner’s seal on copyright page, with original price of $3.00 printed on the front flap of the wrapper Presented in a custom slip case
Condition of book: The book has some fading of the lettering on the spine and comes with the original sales receipt for $3 from the Scribner’s Bookstore in New York. This has caused some off-setting to the final pages of the text block. Otherwise, the book is very good in a near fine wrapper with some rubbing at the head and tail of the spine.
