Presented is a first edition printing of Winner Take Nothing by Ernest Hemingway. The book was published in New York by Charles Scribner's Sons in 1933. The first edition had a print run of approximately 20,000 copies. It is offered here bound in the publisher's black cloth boards, with gold paper title labels to upper board and spine printed in black, with the unclipped first issue dust jacket.

This is the first edition of Hemingway's distinguished collection of 14 short stories, including some of his more celebrated poems: “A Natural History of the Dead,” “After the Storm,” and “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place.” Winner Take Nothing was the third and final collection of stories published by Hemingway. Thanks to this beloved collection, Hemingway secured his reputation as “the modern American master of the short story.” Hemingway’s “epigraph to Winner Take Nothing… is perhaps the finest and most accurate brief description of Hemingway’s heroes, of what he set out to do in his best work and what in the main he accomplished” (McCormick, 55-6).

Hemingway (1899-1961) was an American author and journalist. His distinctive writing style, characterized by economy of words and dry understatement, strongly influenced 20th-century fiction, as did his life of adventure and his public image. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, winning the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954.
