Item Description: New York Scribner 1934, 1934. First Edition, First Printing. Signed presentation copy from F. Scott Fitzgerald to his co-screenwriter, Edward (Ted) Paramore, Jr., on the MGM film, Three Comrades, the only film on which Fitzgerald received screen credit as screenwriter, along with Paramore. Inscribed: ÒFor Ted Paramore. In memory of those days when we used to forage in the drunken infantry under your orders. From his friend, Scott Fitzgerald. M.G.M. 1937.Ó This is the only known presentation copy in which Fitzgerald indicates that he actually signed it at the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio where he and Paramore wrote the screenplay. With ParamoreÕs bookplate on the front pastedown. Very good plus in a very good first issue dust jacket which has had restoration. Enclosed in a matching green cloth clamshell box. Edward Paramore Jr. (1898-1956) was a New York writer who gained acclaim with The Ballad of Yukon Jake (1928), an amusing parody of Robert W. Service, first published in Vanity Fair and then in book form with illustrations by Rockwell Kent. After having two plays produced on Broadway, Paramore was lured to Hollywood during the revolution in sound films. He had a successful screenwriting career (1929-1943) including writing The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1933) for director Frank Capra starring Barbara Stanwyck. He wrote screenplays that starred the likes of James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, Randolph Scott, Henry Fonda, Janet Gaynor, Rosalind Russell, Robert Montgomery, Joan Fontaine, Wallace Beery, Richard Dix, etc. An historic association copy from the peak of F. Scott FitzgeraldÕs Hollywood sojourn. Bookseller Inventory # 14651J

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1934. First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. Inscribed by the author, "For the unknown, unmet parents of Clare (note: double underlined). Knowing her, I hope you will find something to like in this present. Best wishes, F. Scott Fitzgerald". A very good copy with some wear to the crown and foot of the spine, extremities of the cloth in a very good unrestored first issue dust jacket that has some chips and inner strengthening. Housed in a custom clamshell box. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote in a friend's copy of Tender Is the Night, "If you liked The Great Gatsby, for God's sake read this. Gatsby was a tour de force but this is a confession of faith." Set in the South of France in the decade after World War I, Tender Is the Night is the story of a brilliant and magnetic psychiatrist named Dick Diver; the bewitching, wealthy, and dangerously unstable mental patient, Nicole, who becomes his wife; and the beautiful, harrowing ten-year pas de deux they act out along the border between sanity and madness. Tender Is the Night is also the most intensely, even painfully, autobiographical of Fitzgerald's novels; it smolders with a dark, bitter vitality because it is so utterly true. This account of a caring man who disintegrates under the twin strains of his wife's derangement and a lifestyle that gnaws away at his sense of moral values offers an authorial cri de coeur, while Dick Diver's downward spiral into alcoholic dissolution is an eerie portent of Fitzgerald's own fate. F. Scott Fitzgerald literally put his soul into Tender Is the Night, and the novel's lack of commercial success upon its initial publication in 1934 shattered him. He would die six years later without having published another novel, and without knowing that Tender Is the Night would come to be seen as perhaps his masterpiece. In Mabel Dodge Luhan's words, it raised him to the heights of "a modern Orpheus." Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century. Bookseller Inventory # 3071

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1934. Hardcover. First edition. Lightly worn cloth, near fine in an attractive, first issue dustwrapper with an unfaded spine and some minor repair and restoration at the extremities. Fitzgerald had all but fallen off the map when this, his last completed novel, was issued. A portrait of expatriates on the French Riviera, it was supposedly based on Gerald and Sara Murphy but is as likely based on the Fitzgeralds themselves. The 1962 film version by Henry King, the last of his many films adapted from literary novels, featured Jason Robards and Jennifer Jones. Housed in a custom clamshell case. A very nice copy of a desirable and very uncommon title, almost never encountered without fading to the spine. *Connolly 100*. Bookseller Inventory # 364639

Item Description: Scribner, Scribner's, 1934. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. 1st Edition. Good first edition in a complete but only fair second issue jacket with the correct original price of $2.50 on the front flap but with the wrong blurbs. Water damage on back panel of jacket. First edition with Scribner's seal and letter A on copyright page, and correct year on title page. Octavo (7 3/8 x 5 1/8 inches; 187 x 130 mm). [x], [1-408, [2, blank] pp. Housed in a custom slipcase. In this novel, the protagonist, psychiatrist Dick Diver, falls in love and marries one of his patients, the beautiful yet disturbed Nicole. Dick’s travails with her (he nurses her to health, but she leaves him for another man and he deteriorates) echo Fitzgerald’s own increasingly sad and desperate life with his mentally ill wife, Zelda. This is perhaps Fitzgerald’s most powerful and tragic work. Bruccoli, Fitzgerald, A.14.1.a. Bookseller Inventory # 1307053

Item Description: Scribner's Sons,, New York:, 1934. Book Condition: Fine. First edition. His novel published nine years after the THE GREAT GATSBY. Although considered one of his more important books now--it is one of the Connolly 100 and is listed in Modern Library's Top 100 Novels--at the time of publication, the critical reception was damning. So much so that Fitzgerald allowed changes in later editions of the book. Only years after his death was the text restored to the original as published herein. A bright, crisp copy with only the very barest of wear to edges, the lightest offset to endpapers, and just a hint of rubbing to "Tender" on spine, otherwise quite fine, lacking dust jacket. Housed in a specially made, green-cloth clamshell case with gilt-lettered leather spine label. Bookseller Inventory # 53234
