First American edition of Across the River and into the Trees by Ernest Hemingway.
Octavo, 308pp. Black cloth, title in gilt on spine. With “Scribner’s A” and publisher’s seal on copyright page. Solid text block, a touch of wear to spine with some rubbing to title, internally clean, a near fine example. In the publisher’s first state dust jacket, price clipped, black lettering on back strip, closed tears at spine and on back panel, bright illustrations, a very good example. Cover art by Adriana Ivancich. (Hanneman A23a)
The English edition preceded the American edition by three days, both published in September of 1950.
