Hemingway on the many pleasures of a bullfight, which he highly recommends to the connoisseur of violent death as a second-best spectator sport if a good war is not available. That is to say: Hemingway at his most Hemingwayesque. A handsome copy of this lengthy work, illustrated with numerous black and white photographs. Originally published in 1932, this the handsome reissue of 1955. Includes an explanatory glossary and bullfight calendar.
