The Old Man and The Sea, 1969 ** SOLD **
The Old Man and the Sea
London: Jonathan Cape, 1969.
A lovely copy of a later printing, with same dust jacket as the first edition from 1952.
Behind the beauty of the language thrums a relentless sense of Hemingway's search for meaning in a hostile world, a search that finally disappointed him, despite being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, when this book was his latest.
