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. Rhodium-platings and an artistic engraving of a motif from Hemingway’s period decorate the hand-cut 18-karat gold nib.
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. From what we were told, the nibs were only produced in Medium size, so Fine and Broad were special ordered from Montblanc in Hamburg. The factory would then grind these nibs to the buyer's requested size. That being said, these nib sizes have usually been dipped, but never filled. The current example we have in stock is a Medium nib, which appears to have never been touched. The pen comes without the original outer box and papers - it only comes with the presentation book box, which is in fair condition.
