A Farewell to Arms: The Hemingway Library Edition
The definitive edition of the classic novel of love during wartime, featuring all of the alternate endings: “Fascinating…serves as an artifact of a bygone craft, with handwritten notes and long passages crossed out, giving readers a sense of an author’s process” (The New York Times).

Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefield—weary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion—this gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep.

Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms thirty-nine times to get the words right. This edition collects all of the alternative endings together for the first time, along with early drafts of other essential passages, offering new insight into Hemingway’s craft and creative process and the evolution of one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. Featuring Hemingway’s own 1948 introduction to an illustrated reissue of the novel, a personal foreword by the author’s son Patrick Hemingway, and a new introduction by the author’s grandson Seán Hemingway, this edition of A Farewell to Arms is truly a celebration.

A Moveable Feast: The Restored Edition
Ernest Hemingway’s classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, now available in a restored edition, includes the original manuscript along with insightful recollections and unfinished sketches.

Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway’s most enduring works. Since Hemingway’s personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined the changes made to the text before publication. Now, this special restored edition presents the original manuscript as the author prepared it to be published.

Featuring a personal Foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest’s sole surviving son, and an Introduction by grandson of the author, Seán Hemingway, editor of this edition, the book also includes a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches revealing experiences that Hemingway had with his son, Jack, and his first wife Hadley. Also included are irreverent portraits of literary luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Maddox Ford, and insightful recollections of Hemingway’s own early experiments with his craft.

Widely celebrated and debated by critics and readers everywhere, the restored edition of A Moveable Feast brilliantly evokes the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the unbridled creativity and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

Hemingway on Hunting
The companion volume to the bestselling Hemingway on Fishing.

Ernest Hemingway’s lifelong zeal for the hunting life is reflected in his masterful works of fiction, from his famous account of an African safari in “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” to passages about duck hunting in Across the River and Into the Trees. For Hemingway, hunting was more than just a passion; it was a means through which to explore our humanity and man’s relationship to nature. Courage, awe, respect, precision, patience—these were the virtues that Hemingway honored in the hunter, and his ability to translate these qualities into prose has produced some of the strongest accounts of sportsmanship of all time.

Hemingway on Hunting offers the full range of Hemingway’s writing about the hunting life. With selections from his best-loved novels and stories, along with journalistic pieces from such magazines as Esquire and Vogue, this spectacular collection is a must-have for anyone who has ever tasted the thrill of the hunt—in person or on the page.

Ernest Hemingway witnessed many of the seminal conflicts of the twentieth century, and he recorded them with matchless power. Now, this landmark volume brings together Hemingway's most important writings on war.

Edited and with an introduction by Hemingway's grandson Seán and featuring a personal foreword by the author's only living son, Patrick, this volume includes selections from Hemingway's first book of short stories, In Our Time, as well as from A Farewell to Arms, his towering novel of World War I. Excerpts from For Whom the Bell Tolls, Hemingway's indelible portrait of life and love during the Spanish Civil War, along with his only full-length play, The Fifth Column, brilliantly evoke the tumultuous war-torn Spain of the late 1930s.

Passages from Across the River and Into the Trees vividly portray an emotionally scarred career soldier in the twilight of life as he reflects on the nature of war. Classic short stories, such as "In Another Country" and "The Butterfly and the Tank," stand alongside captivating selections from Hemingway's war correspondence during his nearly twenty-five years as a reporter for The Toronto Star and other papers. Among these journalistic pieces are the author's coverage of the Greco-Turkish War of 1922, a legendary early interview with Mussolini, and his jolting eyewitness account of the Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944.

Hemingway on War is a compelling collection of Ernest Hemingway's best writings about the devastating impact of human combat. Brought together for the first time, these works represent the author's penetrating and frank accounts of courage, fear, perseverance, depression, and hope in the midst of war.
