Ernest Hemingway is probably the most recognizable American author of the first part of the 20th century. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Men Without Women is his second collection of short stories. The volume consists of fourteen stories, ten of which had been previously published in magazines. The story subjects include bullfighting, infidelity, divorce and death, and are considered to be among Hemingway’s best work.

Description: Hard bound with dust jacket. First printing of the First edition. Meets all points of issue. Scribner’s “A” on copyright page, no mention of Book of the Month edition or Pulitzer Prize. Original $3.00 price in inside flap of dust jacket, and brown tinted author photo to rear of dust jacket. Sea blue cloth boards show minor wear to corners and edges. Slight offsetting from dust jacket to end pages. Minor foxing to inside flaps of jacket. Previous owners name and 1952 date to front fixed end page, otherwise a tight and clean copy. Dust jacket shows some wear to edges and corners, and one small chip to upper spine edge, otherwise fine. An increasingly scarce copy of a seminal work of modern fiction.
