Black cloth, in red cloth chemise and slipcase. Presentation copy, inscribed by Hemingway on the FFEP, "To Cliff and Dudley, with much affection, Ernest." Clifford R. Bragdon has signed his full name beneath the inscription, and added "Paris, 1927." Dudley Bragdon was the nephew of Hadley Richardson, Hemingway's first wife, and Clifford was Dudley's brother. Spine tips and corners gently bumped; some light feathering to author inscription. By late 1925, Hemingway's reputation had been established primarily within literary circles. He had attributed the lack of general public recognition and the poor sales of his In Our Time to a restrictive contract with his publisher Boni and Liveright. This short novel is a parody of the style of some of the writers of the day, in particular Sherwood Anderson and his recently published novel Dark Laughter (1925). Anderson was Boni and Liveright's most revered and best-selling author who dominated the literary scene at the time. And although Anderson was a friend and an early supporter of Hemingway (he wrote a fine endorsement on the dust jacket of In Our Time), he used Torrents to take aim at Anderson's "rather silly book" and test Liveright's loyalty. Hemingway had just completed the first draft of The Sun Also Rises, and was unwilling to chance his next book to the same unpromising reception from his publisher. The Torrents of Spring was begun in mid-November and completed by Thanksgiving. It was rejected by Boni and Liveright in equally as little time. "I have known all along," Hemingway wrote Fitzgerald, that the firm "could not and would not be able to publish it as it makes a bum out of their present ace and best seller Anderson" (Selected Letters, p. 183). With the contract broken, Hemingway flirted with Harcourt and Knopf before eventually signing with Scribner's. Fitzgerald was very involved on both sides of the negotiation with Scribner's, and actively encouraged the prospect with his editor there, the great Maxwell Perkins. The Torrents of Spring, the book that Fitzgerald would call "the best comic book ever written by an American," was published by Scribner's on May 28, 1926; The Sun Also Rises followed five months later.
