The Sun Also Rises is Ernest Hemingway's debut novel and a touchstone work of 20th century literature. His story expertly distills the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I 'Lost Generation,' as it traces its characters' path from Paris to the festival of San Fermín in Pamplona.

Century Press is proud to present the first edition thus, first letterpress printing of 500 hand-numbered copies of Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises.

    • Letterpress printed on premium 100% cotton 'Flurry' paper with a 1956 Heidelberg 'Windmill' platen press, typeset in Garamond

    • Smyth-sewn by hand for maximum durability

    • Italian, tight-weave, cotton ribbon bookmark
    • New introduction by Daniel Hannah, Professor of Literature at Lakehead University
    • Original gold-stamped artwork on front cover, back cover, and spine by Mac Pogue

Note: Our leather bindings are made from the honest hide of an animal. You're getting the real deal: full-grain leather, considered the best and highest quality leather available. Be aware that this type of leather can be naturally marked with features from each animal like creases, wrinkles, and insect bites. This means that no Century Press book will look exactly the same.

Very refined book

Very refined book. You can see the high quality of the materials from the very first look at the cover, and when you open the book it’s again a splendor.

Thought this was an even nicer looking book than the Fitzgerald book.
