Leather satchel-type game bag,

Sold for US$ 12,500 inc. premium
HEMINGWAY, ERNEST. 1899-1961.
Leather satchel-type game bag, 400 x 300 x 100 mm, comprising main pocket with loops for cartridges, canvas front pocket, and mesh sack pockets, with silver print photograph (7 x 9 inches) in matte pasted inside the flap, some wear to bag, mesh split.

HEMINGWAY'S GAME BAG, inscribed under the flap in white ink "From Ernest and Mary Hemingway — Bag of Tricks, Best Always, Papa." The photograph is also inscribed by Hemingway, "I wonder if my wife can tell / That I've been raising hell. / To an afternoon of Joy / With a good old boy," and signed by the unidentified recipient ("Cano"?). A printed headline on the matte reads "Fernández, Canivell y Cia. Málaga," and a crayon inscription "Ernest Hemingway's game bag used in Europe 1944/59 - La Consula, Malaga."
In 1959, Hemingway made his penultimate trip to Europe, in part to add an epilogue to Scribners' new edition of Death in the Afternoon (first published in 1932), but also to research a series of bullfighting articles commissioned by Life magazine. He stayed at La Consula, the estate of an American, Nathan (Bill) Davis, who happened to be the brother-in-law of Cyril Connolly. Hemingway briefly returned to Spain in 1960, to be photographed for the cover of Life.
