A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway 1st / 1st 1929


London: Chatto & Windus (1929). Finely bound in half leather by Baytun Riviere. It is in a lovely fine condition with raised bands and a gilt motif placed on four occasions of crossed rifles. This is the second issue with ‘serious’ spelt correctly. A lovely finely bound copy.


A Farewell to Arms is a novel set during the Italian campaign of the War. First published in 1929, it is a first-person account of an American, Frederic Henry, serving as a lieutenant in the ambulance corps of the Italian Army. (Something Hemingway himself did, volunteering for the Italian ambulance corps and ultimately being wounded by mortar fire).


The novel describes a love affair between the expatriate Henry and an English nurse, Catherine Barkley
