Ernest Hemingway's debut novel about war-weary American ex-patriots in Spain.  The title page introduces Hemingway as the author of "The Torrents of Spring," and "In Our Time," reminding the modern reader that Hemingway's fame as a novelist was yet to be established. 

In the first printing, the first edition had a typographical error on page 181; this copy is the second state of the first edition, with the word "stopped" corrected.
