Item Description
A manual Royal typewriter that once belonged to Ernest Hemingway, made around 1940 and still in its well-worn leather carrying case, sold for $2,750 at a multi-estate sale held June 24th by Four Seasons Auction Gallery. The typewriter was one of four items once owned by the author and given to George T. Northen, grandson of William J. Northen, a former governor of Georgia. Hemingway and George Northen were friends and fishing buddies. Mr. Northen made specific reference to the four items in his will, writing, “The aforementioned items were given to me while in Cuba fishing with my dear friend Ernest Hemingway and were items from Lookout Farm” (Hemingway's home in Cuba, near Havana).
