Hemingway House in Cuba - Finca Vigia - Photo eBook is the first eBook to deliver 45 high-resolution color photographs of Ernest Hemingway's Cuban residence, Finca Vigia. The photographs, taken by James Reese in December 2002, reveal rarely seen details of Hemingway's Cuban home lifestyle and idiosyncrasies. Each photograph can be printed and is suitable for 8 x 10 or 8.5 x 11 framing. Photographs have been optimized for the new free Adobe Reader 6.0, which allows full screen viewing with complete zoom and pan control. Popup notes in the margins provide comments without cluttering the printed photograph. Zoom and see that Hemingway kept copies of Today's Japan, Gadfly, and Fishing Gazette in his living room magazine rack; zoom to see his US military insignia and lieutenant's bar, duck call, spent cartridges/shotgun shells, all on his study desk; zoom to count the number of books in his bathroom "library" and to see that "Houdini" is four books away from "The Accounting"; zoom on his bathroom wall to see that on April 1, 1960 he recorded 200 as his weight; zoom to see that it is a Royal Portable typewriter on his bookshelf where he typed standing up; zoom on the scenic view from the Tower to see the Capitolio Nacional in Old Havana. Since 1960 few Americans have seen Cuba, and even fewer have seen Finca Vigia. Finca Vigia or "Lookout Farm," is a 19th century villa set on the top of a hill overlooking the village of San Francisco de Paula. These days Finca Vigia functions as a showpiece museum, Museo Hemingway de Cuba. It is left exactly as it was when Hemingway lived there, filled with his books, music and his collection of hunting memorabilia, looking as if the writer had gone on an errand. James Reese is an economics professor at the University of South Carolina Spartanburg. During 2002, Dr. Reese attended seminars at the University of Havana and served as consultant to and member of the official South Carolina trade delegation to Havana.
