Ernest Hemingway

The great Ernest Hemingway’s original work frequently appeared in magazines throughout his career. Here are a few of the most significant from my collection.

His first publlshed literary effort was a short story in this extremely rare 1916 issue of Tabula, his high school literary magazine.

Double Dealer, a rare and important Little Magazine published in New Orleans, provided his first national appearance in 1922. Among the other authors first appearing in Double Dealer were Thornton Wilder and Jean Toomer.

In 1923, Harriet Monroe's important journal Poetry published a number of his poems which were later included in his first book.

Even after his national reputation was made, Scribner’s serialized "A Farewell to Arms" prior to publishing it in book form.

In the late thirties and forties, Hemingway’s articles as a war correspondant appeared in Ken, PM and Collier’s. One of his last works "The Old Man and the Sea" first appeared as a feature in Life in 1952.
