'one of the best short stories ever written'. A 1933 collection of short stories by Nobel Prize Winner Ernest Hemingway, including A Clean, Well Lighted Place, which James Joyce called 'one of the best short stories ever written'.

Many of the stories here appear in print for the first time – and would appear again in later collections. In the year of the collection's publication, Hemingway would go to Africa, an experience which he would later use to write Green Hills of Africa and The Snows of Kilimanjaro. 'There are two stories that show a sudden expansion of Hemingway's range, yet both are beautifully simplified and pure. These are Wine of Wyoming and The Gambler, The Nun, and The Radio' (Contemporary New York Herald Review).

First edition, first printing with Scribner's 'A' on copyright page; 8vo; some age-toning, slight offsetting to endpapers, else unmarked internally; publisher's black cloth, gold paper title labels to upper board and spine printed in black, red topstain, with the unclipped dustjacket, Stallings review on rear panel, some chips and tears to edges with associated creasing, head of spine chipped with loss affecting title; overall very good.
