About this Item: New York First Edition Library 1989, 1989. This facsimile copy of the first edition copy has a terrific full page handwritten inscription and signed from actress Karen Black who co-starred in the 1974 film version opposite Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. Inscribed: ÒIn this great book, when the character that I play in the movie version, Myrtle Wilson, dies, her spirit is described by Fitzgerald as being so huge it rips her mouth when it escapes in death. I went to the director, Jack Clayton, and asked that my mouth be made-up to include the tears. He agreed. I won the Golden Globe for this film. Karen Black.Ó The scene in the book to which Ms. Black is referring is where Fitzgerald remarks: Òthe mouth was wide open and ripped a little at the corners, as though she had choked a little in giving up the tremendous vitality she had stored so long.Ó The book, itself, is an exact facsimile edition reproducing the first edition as published by Charles ScribnerÕs Sons in 1925 including the colorful dust jacket. As new in dust jacket. Enclosed in the publisherÕs cloth slipcase. Karen Black is among AmericaÕs most accomplished actors, an Academy Award nominee, a Golden Globe winner, and has received many other awards for her performances. Three of her films have been chosen by the Library of Congress for the National Film Registry declaring them national treasures. Among her films are Five Easy Pieces, Easy Rider, Nashville, The Day of the Locust, Family Plot, Burnt Offerings, PortnoyÕs Complaint, etc. Seller Inventory # 12106J

About this Item: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1941. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. First edition, first printing with the "A" and the publisher’s seal on the copyright page. A roman a clef, following the Hollywood rise to power of Monroe Stahr, modeled after film producer Irving Thalberg, and his conflicts with rival Pat Brady, a character based on studio head Louis B. Mayer. The novel was unfinished and in rough form at the time of Fitzgerald’s death at the age of 44. His close friend, literary critic and writer Edmund Wilson, collected the notes for the book and edited it for publication. This copy is inscribed on the front flyleaf by Anne Crawford Warren to her husband, writer Charles Marquis "Bill" Warren (1912–90), "inmemoryofScott." The Warren's bookplate isaffixed to the front pastedown. Fitzgerald and Warren met in Baltimore in 1934 through the Vagabond Junior Players. Warren made several other unverified claims about their friendship, including that Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda formally had declared themselves his godparents. However, it iswell known that he collaborated with Fitzgerald on the movie treatment for Tender is the Night. When agent Harold Ober was unable to sell it, Fitzgerald sent Warren to Hollywood to shop the treatment, providing him with letters of introduction to several studios and allowing him to live for a timeat his Malibu home. Octavo. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt titles. The notoriously difficult dust jacket is price-clipped and rather edgeworn, with some mild fading along the spine, a one-inch piece missing from the spine head (affecting the "Scott"), and a half-inch piece missing from the spine heel. Offered together with a small group of correspondence (1983-91) between Warren and Nicholas Patrick Beck,an avid F. Scott Fitzgerald collector and scholar, who was also a journalism professor at California State University, Los Angeles. This includes three handwritten notes and a photocopy of a Fitzgerald letter to Warren, dated May 15, 1939. In addition, the group includes clips of Warren's newspaper obituary and a seven-page, typed document prepared by Beck in which he summarizes the stories Warren told him about his relationship with Fitzgerald, as well aswith Ernest Hemingway. "Why such a talented, wealthy and enormously successful man felt the need to fabricate stories about his relationship with Fitzgerald, and an apparently non-existent relationship with Hemingway, probably went with him to his Arlington NationalCemeterygrave," Beck wrote.

About this Item: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1941. Hardcover. Condition: Near fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very good. First Edition. First edition, first printing with the "A" and the publisher’s seal on the copyright page. A roman a clef, following the Hollywood rise to power of Monroe Stahr, modeled after film producer Irving Thalberg, and his conflicts with rival Pat Brady, a character based on studio head Louis B. Mayer. The novel was unfinished and in rough form at the time of Fitzgerald’s death at the age of 44. His close friend, literary critic and writer Edmund Wilson, collected the notes for the book and edited it for publication. This copy is inscribed on the front flyleaf by Frances Kroll Ring to Nicholas Patrick Beck, an avid F. Scott Fitzgerald collector and scholar, who was also a journalism professor at California State University, Los Angeles. Ring (1916-2015) was the personal secretary of F. Scott Fitzgerald in Hollywood from 1939 and until his death in 1940. She typed the manuscript for The Last Tycoon and settled Fitzgerald's affairs upon his death. This included corresponding with Wilson and advising him on the author’s intentions for the book. Octavo. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt titles. An especially crisp and tight, near fine copy in an uncommonly nice example of the dust jacket with only some light fading along the spine and occasional mild edgewear. Offered together with a first paperback edition (1987) of Frances Kroll Ring’s AGAINST THE CURRENT: As I Remember F. Scott Fitzgerald, also inscribed to Beck and accompanied by a small group of correspondence (1983-91) between Ring and Beck. This includes one typed letter signed and four handwritten notes. Notably, in a 1991 note, Ring confirms the authenticity of a typed letter signed in Beck's collection from Fitzgerald to Charles Marquis Warren. A photocopy of the Fitzgerald letter, dated May 15, 1939, is included. The group also includes a four-page document entitled Facts About Gatsby, which was prepared by Beck and is signed by Ring on the front panel. Seller Inventory # 66086

About this Item: The Modern Library, New York, 1934. First Modern Library edition of the author's masterpiece, with the first appearance of Fitzgerald's new introduction. Octavo, original green cloth. Inscribed by the author on the half title page, "For Lillian Abercrombie at the beginning of a tour of work F. Scott Fitzgerald." Near fine in a very good dust jacket with some rubbing to the extremities and some small chips. Housed in a full custom morocco box. The first Modern Library edition of The Great Gatsby was a resounding commercial failure, and many copies were remaindered with the caption "discontinued title" printed on the jacket's front panel. The present copy represents one of the earlier, non-remaindered copies, and like all of the first Modern Library editions of The Great Gatsby, features Fitzgerald's new introduction, with his own, now-famous take on his masterwork: "I think it is an honest book, that is to say, that one used none of one's virtuosity to get an effect, and, to boast again, one soft-pedalled the emotional side to avoid the tears leaking from the socket of the left eye, or the large false face peering around the corner of a character's head. If there is a clear conscience, a book can survive -- at least in one's feelings about it. On the contrary, if one has a guilty conscience, one reads what one wants to hear out of reviews. In addition, if one is young and willing to learn, almost all reviews have a value, even the ones that seem unfair." 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). Consistently gaining popularity after World War II, the novel became an important part of American high school curricula. It was the basis for numerous stage and film adaptations. Gatsby had four film adaptations, with two exceptionally big-budget versions: the 1974 version starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, as well as Baz Luhrmann's 2013 version starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carrie Mulligan. Fitzgerald's granddaughter praised Lurhmann's adaptation, stating "Scott would be proud.". Seller Inventory # 37020

About this Item: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1925. First edition, second printing of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original green cloth, gilt titles to the spine. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper,"For Esther Sidman on her 21st birthday from her admirer. F Scott Fitzgerald, Hollywood, 1938." In near fine condition with a touch of wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Great Gatsby's signed and inscribed by Fitzgerald are rare. In 1922, Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned."

Consistently gaining popularity after World War II, the novel became an important part of American high school curricula. Today it is widely considered to be a literary classic and a contender for the title "Great American Novel". In 1998, the Modern Library editorial board voted it the 20th century's best American novel and second best English-language novel of the same time period.

About this Item: New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925, 1925. Octavo. Original dark green linen-grain cloth, titles to spine gilt, to front board in blind. Few minor stains and two short closed tears, cloth a bit rubbed/faded with a few scrapes, hinges weak, a good copy. First edition, first printing. A superb presentation to "the original Gatsby", inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "For Harold Goldman, The original 'Gatsby' of this story, with thanks for letting me reveal these secrets of his past. Alcatraz, Cell Block 17 (I'll be out soon, kid. Remember me to the mob. Fitzgerald)." Harold Goldman (1889-1956) was a screenwriter at MGM from about 1935 until 1940. He and Fitzgerald worked together on A Yank at Oxford, 1938, starring Robert Taylor and Vivien Leigh. Jay Gatsby, of course, was another "Yank at Oxford," famously claiming to Nick Carraway that "all my ancestors have been educated there." Fitzgerald did not enjoy his brief and unsuccessful time in Hollywood - "Cell Block 17" is a sardonic reference to his office in the writers' building and "Alcatraz" the MGM lot - although of course he used his experiences there in his last, unfinished novel, published in 1941 as The Last Tycoon. According to family history, Fitzgerald and Goldman knew each other prior to their time together at MGM. This seems to be corroborated by the warmth of the present inscription. Both writers attended Ivy League schools (Goldman at Columbia) and both spent a good amount of time in France among the ex-pat community of writers. Inscribed copies of this novel are notably rare. There were no presentation copies inscribed by the author in the book at publication date, as Fitzgerald was in Europe at the time. This copy is of the first printing, the first state of the text with Scribner's seal and all other points. Bruccoli A11.1.a. Seller Inventory # 102632
