Title Page

Here are the Title Page and the Title Verso.  Together these elements are known as the Title Leaf.  The title page shows the title proper, who is responsible for the book and publishing information (Wikipedia, 2014).  The title verso shows any revisions which were done and also has the symbol for the Scribner Press which contains the initials C.S.S. a laurel leaf wreath a magic lamp and a book.

The title page indicates that my copy of A Farewell to Arms is from the 6th issue of the 1st  edition.  The story was originally published as a serial in Scribner’s Magazine between May and October of 1929.  It was first released as a book in September of 1929 with 31,000 copies.  The original editions, as well as all of the editions released since, are censored for select curse words.  Hemingway hand-wrote the words into the copy he gifted to James Joyce (Wikipedia, 2014).
