Grissom notes five printings in 1927 which are very difficult to tell apart. It is generally accepted that the later printings have a broken ‘3’ on p.3. Many of the tales collected here appear in book form for the first time, following initial publication in various periodicals; Hemingway is remembered for his novels, but it was the short stories that first attracted notice.
