First Russian translation of Hemingway's 'The Old Man at the Bridge'. One of 15 000 copies printed.

This issue includes the story by Ernest Hemingway 'Starik u Mosta' ('The Old Man at the Bridge'; 1938).
It is devoted to the Spanish Civil War. Hemingway published it as a short story in 'Ken Magazine' (# 4, May 19, 1938), not as a news article. And almost immediately the story was translated into Russian (this magazine was signed for printing on September 8). The translation was prepared by Tat'yana Ozerskaya (1907-1991). She also translated novels by Jack London, Theodore Dreiser, Margaret Mitchell,
and Robert Stevenson.
