"I learned never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it." ~ Ernest Hemingway
Hemingway writing at a simple desk while on safari in Africa. We found a few other desks on 1stdibs that we think would have suited him perfectly.
Desks from 1stdibs: Austrian Mahogany Flip-Top Campaign Desk 1890, China Trade Camphorwood Lap Desk 1840, Ebonized Campaign Desk 1940
