Descriptive bibliography of American writer Ernest Hemingway, documenting his work from 1923 through 2009. Provides edition, printing, issue, state, location, and description of all printings, editions, parent editions, plays, interviews, television productions, and films. Illustrated and indexed. DVD-ROM with more than 2,000 color illustrations, including more than 50 images of Hemingway's signature from 1908 to 1960. "And if your pulse quickens upon hearing that a new edition or printing or state has been discovered, then you should stop reading this review and lay hands on this new bibliography. You will find C. Edgar Grissom's Ernest Hemingway: A Descriptive Bibliography to be the welcome product of a persistent and inquiring mind. One gets the sense that he has chased the sometimes confounding details of his tome to their source--or else pursued them as far as we could have possibly followed ourselves, leaving us with a trustworthy reference tool that answers, but also asks, questions....Grissom adds two other major contributions to his descriptions and notes. The first is seven appendices including a chronology of Hemingway's life and signatures, an interpretation of Scribner's copyright page, a glossary of terms, and a selective listing of manuscripts. The second is a DVD-ROM containing lists of blurbs, reviews, epigraphs, interviews, adaptations, keepsakes, anthologies, translations, and more than 2000 color images of jackets, covers, and spines." Albert J. DeFazio, III. The Hemingway Review, vol. 31, no. 2, spring 2012.
