Dive into the world of literature with The Sun Also Rises by the legendary Ernest Hemingway, an exquisite offering from Kadri Books. This particular edition, dating back to 1977 and published by The Franklin Library, Pennsylvania, not only boasts of its content but also its unparalleled craftsmanship. As part of 'The 100 Greatest Masterpieces of American Literature', this limited edition stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of American literary genius.

Meticulously illustrated by Stan Hunter, this edition of The Sun Also Rises is a feast for both the mind and the eyes. Hemingway, renowned for classics like The Old Man and the Sea, A Farewell to Arms, and the poignant Hills Like White Elephants, once again captivates readers with his unmatched narrative prowess. While The Sun Also Rises stands tall among Hemingway's oeuvre, this edition also reminds one of other masterpieces like Hemingway's Garden of Eden and his trove of short stories that have left an indelible mark on the literary landscape.

Bound in a luxurious tan or light brown full leather, the book is accentuated with shimmering 22-karat gold trimmings that catch the eye. Silk endpapers and a handy silk ribbon bookmarker add to the elegance, while raised bands on the spine enhance the tactile experience. Measuring approximately 5 ½ x 9 inches, and comprising 286 pages, this tome is both a collector's delight and a reader's dream.

Apart from being a narrative marvel, this edition is also a nod to the intricate detailing that went into books of yore. With the imprimatur of The American Revolution Bicentennial Administration, it is a unique blend of literature and decorative artistry, making it a perfect addition to any connoisseur's collection.

Hemingway's ties with notable personalities like Mary Welsh Hemingway, Patrick Hemingway, Hadley Richardson, and Pauline Pfeiffer further deepened his enigma. And now, with this offering from Kadri Books, you can own a piece of that enigma, right in your library.

While Hemingway’s exploits in Cuba or his connection with places like Hemingway's Bookshop might be well-known, it is his literary masterpieces that continue to enchant readers across generations. Don't miss out on the chance to make this limited edition of The Sun Also Rises a part of your cherished collection.

Book Care

Taking proper care of your leatherbound and vintage books can significantly extend their lifespan and preserve the beauty of their binding. Here are some general guidelines to ensure your precious books last for generations:

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Over time, direct sunlight can cause the leather to fade and degrade. Always store your books away from direct sunlight.
  • Keep Books Dry: Leather and humidity don't mix well. Keep your books in a dry, well-ventilated environment to prevent mold growth.
  • Avoid High Temperatures: High heat can dry out the leather, leading to cracks. Room temperature is ideal for your books.
  • Clean Regularly: Dust your books with a soft cloth. For deeper cleaning, consider a gentle leather cleaner, but always spot-test first.
  • Handle with Clean Hands: Oils and dirt from your hands can damage the pages and leather over time. Ensure your hands are clean and dry before handling.

Remember, these are books to be loved, respected, and passed down - your care ensures their stories continue to be told.
