Item Description: Charles Scribners, New York, 1925. First edition, first printing with "chatter" on p. 60, line 16, "northern" on p. 119, line 22, "it's" on p. 165, line 16, "away" on p. 165, line 29, "sick in tired" on p. 205, lines 9-10, and "Union Street station" on p. 211, lines 7-8. Octavo, original dark green cloth. A very fine copy in a very good first issue dust jacket, with lowercase "j" in "jay Gatsby" on the back panel, hand-corrected in ink. The dust jacket has had some restoration to the folds, tape removed and some tears repaired that include expert recoloring to portions of the upper and lower spine. An excellent copy, extremely rare in the original dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The dust jacket is not only one of the most recognizable and iconic book covers of the twentieth century, but it is also one of the most rare. The cover art was entitled "Celestial Eyes" and was designed by artist Francis Cugat, who was not well-known at the time. Fitzgerald, however, fell in love with the design and actually wrote a number of things into the novel to relate it to the proposed cover. Bookseller Inventory # 2718

Item Description: Charles Scribners, New York, 1925. Handsomely bound in finely woven green cloth, blindstamped on the front boards, and brightly lettered in gilt on the spine. With white wove endpapers of sized stock. Top and bottom edges trimmed; front edges deckle-edged. Very clean and tight throughout. With all the first issue points: "chatter" on p. 60; "Northern" on p. 119; "it's" on p. 165; "away" on p. 165; "sick in tired" on p. 205; and "Union Street station" on p. 211. There is some damage to the top left corner of the spine, causing a 1/4" tear to the cloth at the edge and wrinkling the top outer edges and inside corners of pages 201 and 203. In the original dust jacket with the price of $2.00 at the top of the inside front flap. With nearly all of the colorful and iconic front panel featuring the face of a Jazz Age Flapper with haunting eyes, with the exception of a thumbnail-sized piece missing at the top right-hand corner of the front panel. The jacket is missing two thirds of the spine, though the printed title and author are mostly present. The rear panel has a pinky-sized fingernail piece missing at the top center over the "G" in Gatsby, not affecting any of the lettering. The "J" in "Jay Gatsby" in line 13 is a capital letter and correctly printed. The front and rear flaps are heavily edge-rubbed with light chipping along the top edges. Truly a wounded bird, one of the rarest of modern American first editions in dust jacket. A Jazz Age rara avis frozen in time.

Note: the publication date of "The Great Gatsby" was April 10, 1925; there were 20,870 copies published (Bruccoli). "Here is a novel, glamorous, ironical, compassionate--a marvellous fusion into unity of the curious incongruities of the life of the period.It is the story of Jay Gatsby who came so mysteriously to West Egg, of his sumptuous entertainments, and of his love for Daisy Buchanan, a story that ranges from pure lyrical beauty to sheer brutal realism, and is infused with a sense of the strangeness of human circumstance in a heedless universe. It is a magical, living book, blended of irony, romance, and mysticism." (Rear panel of the jacket) First Edition, first printing with all first issue points. Bookseller Inventory # 289

Item Description: Charles Scribners 1920-1935., New York, 1920. First edition, first printings of F. Scott Fitzgerald's works. Octavo, 8 volumes. Uniformly bound by Bayntun-Riviere Bindery in full dark green morocco. Titles to the spine in gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, twin rule to turn ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, except The Great Gatby which has the top edge gilt. F.Scott Fitzgerald signature on the front panel of each volume in gilt. Fitzgerald's first novel, This Side of Paradise, displayed a sophisticated cynicism masking keen psychological insight and sensitivity to the falseness of the ideals of the so-called "jazz era" in America, following World War 1. F. Scott Fitzgerald continued to write on this theme in two volumes of short stories, Flappers and Philosophers and Tales of the Jazz Age. With the publication of The Great Gatsby, the story of a gross and ostentatious man who gained immense material success but who destroyed himself and those around him in the process, F. Scott Fitzgerald's full powers as a novelist were revealed; he was ranked by many critics as one of the pre-eminent American writers. In his later writings, as exemplified by the short story collections All the Sad Young Men and Taps at Reveille, and the novel Tender is the Night, his central theme shifted to what he deemed the inevitable corruption of the individual by the blind crassness of modern society.

Item Description: Charles Scribners, New York, 1925. First edition, first state with "chatter" p.60, "northern" p.119, "sick in tired" p.205, and "Union Street station" p. 211. Octavo, original dark green cloth. In fine condition, with the gilt lettering to the spine, nice and bright. With a Scribner's "compliments of the author" slip laid in. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional copy. In 1922, Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned." That extraordinary, beautiful, intricately patterned, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgerald's finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known. A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Cyril Connolly called The Great Gatsby one of the half dozen best American novels: "Gatsby remains a prose poem of delight and sadness which has by now introduced two generations to the romance of America, as Huckleberry Finn and Leaves of Grass introduced those before it" (Modern Movement 48).

Item Description: NY Scribner's 1925, 1925. First edition, first issue of Fitzgerald’s most famous work, with the six textual variants noted by Bruccoli. Although The Great Gatsby garnered critical acclaim when it was first published, at the time of Fitzgerald’s death in 1940 at age 44, he had largely been dismissed as a writer who failed to reach his full, promising potential. However, Bruccoli notes that a "resurrection" of Fitzgerald began during World War II, when copies of The Great Gatsby were distributed by the Armed Services Editions program. The novel’s popularity soared and has never waned since then; The Great Gatsby is now secure in the canon of American literature. Bound in original dark green cloth, blind-stamped to front cover and gilt-titled to spine. Owner’s initials in pencil on corner of endpaper, two very faint spots to back cover, slight spine lean, else a very fine, clean, and bright copy lacking the rare dust jacket. (Bruccoli A11.I.a).

Bound in the publisher's dark blue-green cloth, front board lettering stamped in blind, spine lettering stamped in gilt. A very good or better copy, with a faint hint of wear to the extremities, spine gilt just a bit dulled, light foxing to the half-title and title pages, very minor foxing to the page edges, otherwise bright and clean interior. Overall, a bright and sturdy copy. Bruccoli A 11. While it has since been regarded as masterful piece of classic literature, The Great Gatsby did not gain popularity until after the author's death in 1940. The novel tells the story of the star-crossed lovers Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan against the backdrop of wealthy and materialistic West Egg, Long Island, during the Prohibition Era. Although Fitzgerald meant the text to be critical of the 1920's social climate, today The Great Gatsby is beloved for its vivid descriptions of extravagant parties, palatial homes, and eccentric characters that are emblematic of the Jazz Age. The text remains extremely popular today and is widely taught in schools across the United States. The first edition was printed in a run of 20,870 copies; today, Scribner's sells almost 25 times as many copies per year as printed books and e-books. Bookseller Inventory # FSF063

Item Description: New York Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1925. First Edition, First Issue of One of the Great Rarities in American Literature FITZGERALD, F. Scott. The Great Gatsby. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925. First edition, first printing. With the correct issue points as called for by Bruccoli., "chatter"on p. 60, line 16, "northern" on p. 119, line 22, "it’s" on p. 165, line 16, "away" on p. 165, line 29, "sick in tired" on p. 205, lines 9-10, and "Union Street station" on p. 211, lines 7-8. Octavo (7 7/16 x 5 1/8 inches; 189 x 131 mm). [6], 218 pp. Original green linen-like grain cloth with front cover lettered in blind and spine lettered in gilt. Top edge trimmed, fore-edge uncut. With spine gilt crisp. Some very light soiling to back cover. A bit of light toning and foxing, mainly to preliminaries. Overall a very good copy. In (Mid-July) 1922, having already written This Side of Paradise and The Beautiful and Damned, Fitzgerald wrote to his publisher Max Perkins, "I want to write something new—something extraordinary and beautiful and simple + intricately patterned" (Bruccoli and Duggan, Correspondence of F. Scott Fitzgerald, p. 112). The triumphant result three years later was The Great Gatsby, published just before what Fitzgerald called the summer of "1,000 parties and no work" (Fitch, 183). Noted critic Cyril Connolly called Gatsby one of the half dozen best American novels: "[Gatsby] remains a prose poem of delight and sadness which has by now introduced two generations to the romance of America, as Huckleberry Finn and Leaves of Grass introduced those before it" (The Modern Movement, 48).

Item Description: Charles Scribners, New York, 1925. First edition, first state with "chatter" p.60, "northern" p.119, "sick in tired" p.205, and "Union Street station" p. 211. Octavo, original dark green cloth. An excellent copy, with the spine gilt still quite bright. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. In 1922, Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned." That extraordinary, beautiful, intricately patterned, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgerald's finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known. A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Cyril Connolly called The Great Gatsby one of the half dozen best American novels: "Gatsby remains a prose poem of delight and sadness which has by now introduced two generations to the romance of America, as Huckleberry Finn and Leaves of Grass introduced those before it" (Modern Movement 48).

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1925. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. First edition, first printing. Charles Sribner's Sons. 1925. Meets all 1st issue points. Scribners seal on copyright page. 1925 is the only date on both the title page and the copyright page. TYPOS: Page 60 line 16: chatter. Page 119 line 22: northern. Page 165 line 16: it's. Page 165 line 29: away (no period). Page 205 lines 9-10: sick in tired. Page 211 lines 7-8: Union Street Station. This book is tight and clean. Internally, crisp. Most minor toning near gutters. Green exterior cloth is mottled as there is uneven bleed of the green dye. This is the sole reason this copy does not grade higher. With a little restoration love, this cloth could be redyed and would make a significant presentation difference. Minor rubbing to edge. One tiny fray hair near crown of backstrip. Gold titles and name are still on backstrip but a little darkened. A couple of random spots of foxing within the page body. Despite the uneven colored panels, this is a very nice clean and tight copy. Offered with a facsimile dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 000436
