Title: THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA
Author: Ernest Hemmingway
Type: Fiction
Date Published: first impression published in the USA

The image shown is of the 1967 British printing (technically a reprint of the USA edition)
Date Published: 1967
Pages: 124pp.
Printer: C. Nicholls and Co Ltd
Price: 3/6d.


Also shown are the front and back covers of an unusual 'Penguin'.
Note the title which reads 'The Old Men and the Sea'.
This is a pirated copy, thought to be from Taiwan, purporting to be a Penguin book by Hemmingway. It is actually a poor photo-offset reprint of the Jonathan Cape edition of 1957. It has printed on the last page of the book (rather than on the title verso) the statement "Printed in Britain by Camelot Press Ltd", who were the printers of the Jonathan Cape edition. On the back cover is printed the name of another publisher 'Nobel Publishing Co., Ltd.,' (with the extra final comma!).
118 pages and priced at 2/6d.
A fake copy!
