Is Ernest Hemingway collectable a number of people have asked me ?

Well certainly I have always answered, although scarcity is not necessarily a criteria.But now in

recent weeks I have started to come across his books. "The Old Man and the Sea" and "For whom the

Bell Tolls" and so on. Fascinating ! I wonder how many readers ever saw the great, if a little

depressing, movie , about the old fisherman and his epic battle with a very big fish,starring Spencer

Tracey, and the story of war and love  in World War 1, starring Gary Cooper and I think Ingrid


And how many of us know that Hemingway committed suicide with his own hunting rifle ?

Interesting ? Perhaps ?
