244 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs. "Ernest Hemingway's sister is a talented author in her own right, and in this book she gives a lively and delightful picture of the upbringing of a remarkable family. Their fathe r, Dr Hemingway, with his rugged personality, his pioneering reminiscences, and his love of open-air sports, was much admired by the young Ernest - who later came also to appreciate his true courage as an independent doctor. There was a cl o s e b o n d between these two: and one of a different kind between the five children and his mother, the gentle, rather pampered, very musical Grace Hall....Mrs Sanford takes us into a warm and vivid intimacy with Ernest the prolific inventor of n ic k- n am es , Er n est the aspiring musician, and the avid reader. Later (she and Ernest) competed in their first efforts at literary composition. Mrs Sanford tells how Ernest left home to work on the Kansas City 'Star', and records the episo de of his i ntr odu ct ion t o the Toronto 'Star'. (This book) tells of a large and lively family brought up on the old-fashioned virtues - a spirited family, full of activity. And as the member of it closest to the author, we have Ernest Heming way as he was in the yea rs o f i nnocence." Two tiny marks on free front endpaper, light browning to edges of textblock and to top edge of boards, bump at top of spine and at three corners, very light edge wear. Dust jacket has light to modera te e dge wear /wri nkli ng, a fe w ver y sm all chips, two small edge tears archivally taped, small irregular shaped tear archivally taped on rear hinge, light rubbing and tiny scuffs, light soiling - mainly on rear panel.
