The Atlantic (1954 copy)

You just never know when you may come across Ernest Hemingway. For me it could be while walking the streets of Manhattan and find a 1st edition of For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940) at a sidewalk book sale or most recently while in Camden, Maine I found a copy of The Atlantic (1954) with Hemingway on the cover. In regard to the second, Charles Fenton was featured as the cover story in a great 10-page story entiled, Ernest Hemingway: The Young Years. This particular copy was found at a great little book store called the Goose River Exchange which had a sign out front that first caught my eye – Antiques, Books Ephemera. This 1954 copy, in good condition, was just 50 cents back in the day (I purchased it for $25). I also found a 1952 copy of The Old Man and the Sea (which is still there!).
