Hardcover with dust jacket, oatmeal cloth with reddish-brown spine and cover titles, 22.3 by 28.7 cm, xiv 343 pp., illus. The hardcover is very good with a light musty odor and a previous owner’s name in blue pen on the ffep that looks like they tried, in turn, to scratch off and use white-out on. The jacket is good with light wear, edge wear, and fading on the spine panel. This copy comes with the original shipping carton with the title printed on the front (no name or shipping address). This well-illustrated volume details Hemingway “in one of his favorite locales, the Ketchum, Idaho, country at the entrance to the primitive areas of the Sawtooth and Pioneer mountains. For Whom the Bell Tolls was written while Hemingway was staying at the Lodge at Sun Valley. Mr. Arnold, who is on the public relations staff, and chief photographer for the Sun Valley for twenty-two years, was assigned to take publicity pictures of Hemingway in 1939, and he tells of the elbow-bending sessions, the parties and the verbal battles took place while the book was being written, and how Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman came to star in the motion picture of the same name. Hemingway and the author-photographer subsequently became staunch friends, forming a nucleus of dedicated sportsman who gathered together for hunting expeditions, bird-shooting parties, Lucullan feasts, and general high jinks whenever ‘Papa’ came to town.” (jacket flaps)
