Early 1926 HEMINGWAY printing of the short story 'The Undefeated'

This anthology of short stories contains the Hemingway short story, "The Undefeated" (Hanneman #B 4). This is the first book appearance of this story - reprinted from This Quarter, Vol 1 (Autumn-Winter 1925-1926), a rare literary journal. Published in New York: Dodd, Mead & Co. Published December, 1926. Dark blue cloth hardcover with gilt title on spine and cover. No dust jacket. 466 pp.

Bibliography cited: Ernest Hemingway A Comprehensive Bibliography by Audre Hanneman, 1967. Listed in Section B, #4 (Contrubutions and first appearances).

This is a very rare and early appearance of Hemingway, around the same time as The Torrents of Spring (May 28, 1926) and The Sun Also Rises (Oct 22, 1926). It would make a wonder early edition to any Hemingway collection.
