The coral red and dark brown of the Writers Edition Hemingway is reminiscent of a Montblanc 139 fountain pen from the 1930s – the decade in which Hemingway celebrated his earliest success.
The cap, with its gold-plated mountings and classical, gold-plated clip, bears the engraved signature of the writer.
Ernest Hemingway was undoubtedly one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, and he still inspires discriminating literature enthusiasts all around the world.
In works such as “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and “The Old Man and the Sea”, Hemingway was remarkable for his powers of verbal expression and the denseness of his narratives. Hemingway thus became not only a model for a whole generation of writers, but also a challenge – which most of them failed to meet.
This particular pen is in mint pre-owned condition. It comes with generic Montblanc boxes and papers.
