Ernest Hemingway's First Published Collection of Short Stories

In Our Time (1925) includes multiple vignettes along with the following short stories:

  • Indian Camp
  • The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife
  • The End of Something
  • The Three Day Blow
  • The Battler
  • A Very Short Story
  • Soldier's Home
  • The Revolutionist
  • Mr. and Mrs. Elliot
  • Cat In the Rain
  • Out of Season
  • Cross Country Snow
  • My Old Man
  • Big Two-Hearted River - Part I
  • Big Two-Hearted River - Part II

In the following work, we are given a glimpse into the mind of a young Hemingway: an Illinois native, outdoorsman, war correspondent, bullfighter aficionado, new husband and father, and an aspiring writer. Here he takes his first steps toward becoming the towering figure of literature we know today.  

This Editon

Half-bound with Verona Hot Toffee Book cloth. The covers are wrapped with handmade paste papers, each one unique. 

Each of these copies will be hand sewn with black book thread. The end pages are Bright Red handmade Lokta paper which are sewn to the text block, making an extra strong binding. 

Inside you will find 10 period accurate photographs that match the short story or vignette. Each will be tipped in. 

The slipcase is covered in Verona Smoke Book cloth. Inside it is lined with black paper and outside features a red foil signature of Ernest Hemingway. On the reverse side is the Copperhead Press logo also in red foil. Measures 9" x 6".

Companion Books

Included with this edition are two companion books:

  • "in our time" (1924) Paste Paper Wrapper 

    Printing & Paper

    As the photos in this edition will all be tipped in, we decided to go with a high-end digital four-color printing. With the printing being only black text, with red page numbers and headers, it was very comparable to digital offset printing. We still hope to make the jump to letterpress someday. But with this being our first project we don’t want to overextend with turnaround or pricing.

    We want to be completely transparent with each step of making these books. But I will say I wouldn't personally put this much time and effort into binding a poorly printed text block. We feel this is a quality and cost-effective choice for our first project. I've added pictures below to show the high printing quality on felt white paper.
