Hemingway - Rose Edition of Farewell to Arms

Hemingway's 2nd novel - "A Farewell to Arms" is an American Work of Art.   It's come out in numerous editions.

The Franklin Library Edition is one of the most desirable of the collectible editions of the book.   It features a leather binding, with a gilt rose and barbed wire design on the cover.   The beautiful reddish leather boards are offset by the gilt used.

It's a statement about the craft of book-making and certainly the art of writing.
