Hemingway, Ernest. The Spanish Earth. Cleveland: J.B. Savage Co., 1938. First edition, limited copy numbered 101 out of 1000, first issue with the F.A.I. bannered endpapers. Original pictorial tan cloth lettered in black and decorated in orange. Illustrated. Slim 8vo. Fine. This is the rare first issue with the decorative F.A.I. bannered endpapers that was published by a Cleveland high school student named Jasper Wood, who was so moved on seeing the film that he convinced Hemingway to allow publication of the text. Approximately 50 to 100 copies of this first issue were ever produced; the second issue had dropped the decorative endpapers and replaced it with plain tan endpapers with a statement printed on the rear pastedown. Hanneman A15.A.
