MANUSCRIPT ON MARLIN-FISHING FOR ESQUIRE. Hemingway chronicles his fishing expeditions departing from Havana aboard the Anita in 1933, for the the first in a series of travel-sport letters he produced for the magazine. The article was illustrated by a series of 16 photographs, the originals of which are included in the lot; all but one bear pencil captions on the verso in Hemingway's hand. (Two additional photographs are present but were not reproduced in the article.) In his letter Gingrich proposes a subtitle which Hemingway has crossed out and substituted "A Cuban Letter" instead, the subtitle the story would run with.
