Savannah, GA, March 18, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Hemingway’s manual Royal typewriter, circa 1940, still in its well-worn leather carrying case, will be for sale and on display in the Circa Savannah showroom at 42 E. Bay Street (next door to the historic Cotton Exchange).
The typewriter was originally given as a present by literary giant Ernest Hemingway to George T. Northen – the grandson of former Georgia Governor William J. Northen, who served two terms, from 1890-1894. Hemingway and George Northen were friends and fishing buddies, often spending time together in Cuba.
The typewriter was at one time kept by Hemingway in his home in Cuba that he bought in 1940 and named Finca Vigia (Lookout Farm). He and his wife, Martha, lived in the house during World War II and today, along with Hemingway's fishing boat, is a national landmark in Cuba.
