    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: “In 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.” The scene in the book to which Ms. Black is referring is where Fitzgerald remarks: “the 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.” The book, itself, is an exact facsimile edition reproducing the first edition as published by Charles Scribner’s Sons in 1925 including the colorful dust jacket. As new in dust jacket. Enclosed in the publisher’s cloth slipcase. Karen Black is among America’s 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, Portnoy’s Complaint, etc.

    First edition with the "A" and the publisher‚ s seal on the copyright page. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by Harold Pinter, who wrote the screenplay to the 1976 film The Last Tycoon, directed by Elia Kazan and starring Robert DeNiro, Tony Curtis and Jack Nicholson. Near fine in near fine dust jacket. Foreword by Edmund Wilson. A unique example. Unfinished at the time of his death, F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Last Tycoon is a story of doomed love set against the extravagance of America's booming film industry. The studio lot looks like 'thirty acres of fairyland' the night that a mysterious woman stands and smiles at Monroe Stahr, the last of the great Hollywood princes. Enchanted by one another, they begin a passionate but hopeless love affair, starting with a fast-moving seduction as slick as a scene from one of Stahr's pictures. The romance unfolds, frame by frame, watched by Cecilia, a thoroughly modern girl who has taken her lessons in sentiment and cynicism from all the movies she has seen. Her buoyant humour and satirical eye perfectly complement Fitzgerald's panorama of Hollywood at its most lavish and bewitching. F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) has acquired a mythical status in American literary history, and his masterwork The Great Gatsby is considered by many to be the 'great American novel'. In 1920 he married Zelda Sayre, dubbed 'the first American Flapper', and their traumatic marriage and Zelda's gradual descent into insanity became the leading influence on his writing. As well as many short stories, Fitzgerald wrote five novels This Side of Paradise, The Great Gatsby, The Beautiful and the Damned, Tender is the Night and, incomplete at the time of his death, The Last Tycoon. After his death The New York Times said of him that 'in fact and in the literary sense he created a "generation" '. It is the basis for the 1976 film directed by Elia Kazan and produced by Sam Spiegel, based on Harold Pinter's screenplay, starring Robert De Niro, Tony Curtis, Robert Mitchum, Jack Nicholson, Donald Pleasence, Jeanne Moreau, Theresa Russell and Ingrid Boulting.

    First edition, second issue of Fitzgerald's masterpiece with all six second issue points present, including: ‚ echolalia‚ on page 60, ‚ southern‚ on page 119, ‚ sickantired‚ on page 205, and ‚ Union Station‚ on page 211. Octavo, original dark green cloth with gilt titles to the spine. Presentation copy, lengthily inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Theodore L. Liedemedt in memory of that week we went rowing in a bull-fiddle through the lovely lakes of Central Park, from Stravinski (Alias F. Scott Fitzgerald) May 1885 'Stuttgart.'" The recipient, Theodore L. Liedemedt, was a German-born musician and close personal friend of Fitzgerald's. Kept in Liedemedt‚ s family for over ninety years, family lore has it that the two first met on board a transatlantic ship crossing in the 1920s (Fitzgerald traveled to Europe in 1921, 1924, 1928, and 1929). Liedemedt was a working musician who performed on some of those crossings. He died in 1929, just making it to 30. Fitzgerald, older only by three years, just outlived his friend, dying in 1940 at 44. A South New Jerseyian in the later part of his short life, Liedemedt arrived on American shores in 1915 during the First World War. He worked first on the crew of a German merchantman, interned in the Delaware River, then from June 1916 at a day job in Philadelphia. When the United States entered the First World War officially on April 6, 1917, Liedemedt was detained by the FBI on April 7. He was released a few days later when they found that he did not hare the political convictions of his home country and was, therefore, not a threat to the United States. Fitzgerald took up residence in New Jersey in in 1911 when he attended the Newman School, a Catholic prep school in Hackensack. After graduating he attending Princeton University, only a few miles from Liedemedt‚ s stomping grounds, where Fitzgerald abruptly left in 1917 to join the American Army. Having avoided active service in Europe he moved to New York City where he would begin his career as a writer. Fitzgerald and Liedemedt were never more than roughly 80 miles from each other, from Liedemedt‚ s landing in 1915 to his early death 14 years later. The nature of the inscription‚ "knowing, familiar, full of inside references‚ "points to an intimacy not documented in an other sources in Fitzgerald‚ s archives. In very good condition. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box made by the Harcourt Bindery. An exceptional inscription from Fitzgerald. 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. 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. 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.‚ Second printing, with ‚ echolalia‚ on p. 60, ‚ northern‚ for ‚ southern‚ on p. 119, ‚ sickantired‚ on p. 205, and ‚ Union Street station‚ for ‚ Union Station‚ on p. 211.

During April, 1937, Fitzgerald was living at the Oak Hall Hotel in Tyron, North Carolina while Zelda was in Highland Hospital in nearby Asheville. He was heavily in debt, often drunk, and his career was at a standstill; he would embark for Hollywood in June. Brucolli A 11.1.b.

    Octavo, original dark green cloth with gilt titles to the spine. Association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, ‚ With the Pleasant memories of La Paix behind me alas and alack! Souvenir of 1932‚ "1933 for M.T. from her ‚ " at least from one who was almost made to feel like ‚ " a guest. F. Scott Fitzgerald.‚ The recipient, Margaret Turnbull, who with her husband Bayard owned La Paix, a 28‚ "acre estate with a large Victorian house near Towson, Maryland. The Fitzgeralds rented La Paix from the Turnbulls in 1932 and 1933 because of its proximity to the Phipps Clinic, the psychiatric branch of Johns Hopkins, where Zelda was being treated. This is also where Fitzgerald finished work on his second masterpiece, Tender is the Night. The Turnbulls lived nearby in another house on the estate; while Bayard Turnbull disapproved of Fitzgerald, his wife Martha shared an interest in literature with him and became a good friend of him. According to her son, at their first dinner together ‚ Fitzgerald grew heated on the subject of Thomas Wolfe and left the table to get his copy of ‚ Look Homeward, Angel‚ , which he insisted my mother take with her and read at once‚ ¶ Out of such treads their friendship was woven. Each time they met here was a carry‚ "over from the previous meeting ‚ " something to discuss that seemed of vital importance‚ ¶ He was constantly lending my mother books: Proust, D.H. Lawrence, Hemingway, Rilke, the diary of Otto Braun‚ ¶ My mother became for a brief season a listener to and therefore a sharer of his thoughts‚ (Turnbull, Scott Fitzgerald, pp. 221‚ "240). It was Margaret Turnbull who introduced Fitzgerald to T.S. Eliot when the poet was staying with her family while lecturing at Johns Hopkins on the Metaphysical Poets.
