Hi There~ My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question. A 1953 printing of the iconic tale entitled The Sun Also Rises is a later edition. Book collectors do prefer first editions and early printings. A true first edition, first printing of this is from 1926 and those copies can sell for up to $50,000 on today’s market. A 1953 later published edition sells for a high average of $20 at retail.
