Item Description :

Esquire, 1939. FIRST EDITION, first printing: (rare “Limited Edition” stated on verso of title page.. Very food condition, full red pebbled cloth, gilt decorated spine, gilt title, gilt rule on boards, all edges gilt, the gilt on the spine and boards has dulled somewhat. Twelve short chapters discuss the history and character of Esquire Magazine from it's inception in 1933 through 1938. These chapters are followed by ten "exhibits" that testify to it's degree of sophistication in both literary content and cartoons. The "exhibits", or short stories, include: “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” by Ernest Hemingway, “I Mix the Drinks,” by W.B. Lytton, “Never Come Monday,” by Eric Knight, and “Uncle Fonse Laughed,” by Jesse Stuart. Twenty full color tipped-in plates by various illustrators, includes Pin-Up art by George Petty, et al., risqué cartoons by Shermund, Robert Holley, et al., as well as black and white illustrations. This “Limited Edition” was likely issued for friends of, and advertisers in, the monthly magazine. This is a relatively early, somewhat difficult limited edition for the Hemingway completist. A very nice collectible copy. 187 pages.
