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 by an expert paper conservationist. 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 on the front free endpaper with a full page inscription, For Harry Joe Brown - late of the 17th Infantry Brigade. Wounded in Hollywood 1920-1940. - from his fellow dough boy F Scott Fitzgerald Encino, 1939." The recipient Harry Joe Brown was a Hollywood producer, who Fitzgerald noted meeting in late 1939: "Somewhere around this time [September 1939] Harry Joe Brown called me over to Twentieth Century Fox on a Sonja Heine picture" (letter to the Berg-Allenberg Agency, 23 February 1940). Fitzgerald had been contracted as a writer by Metro Goldwyn Meyer Studios in the July of 1937, initially for six months. His contract was then extended for another year, but when this lapsed in December 1938 MGM did not renew it. Over the next two years, Fitzgerald freelanced for numerous studios on a number of films, including Everything Happens at Night for which Brown was an associate producer. An excellent near fine example in a very good first issue dust jacket with some fading and chips to the spine. Housed in a custom half morocco 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 # 7340

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1934. First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "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 example 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.

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: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1934. Hardcover. Edward Shenton (illustrator). First edition. 8vo. pp. 408. Dark bluish green cloth binding with gilt lettering to spine. Top and bottom edges trimmed. Pen and ink drawings by Edward Shenton. Some rubbing to binding, slight curve to front board, spotting to bottom page edge, binding sound; very good-. Lacks dustjacket. First printing, with the Scribner's "A" and seal to copyright page. Previously published in four installments in Scribner's Magazine, this is Fitzgerald's fourth novel, and only 7,600 copies of the first printing were produced. The bleakness of the plot mirrors the dark times the author was experiencing during its writing, particularly his professional frustration and the disintegration of his marriage to Zelda. Fitzgerald considered this to be his masterwork, and was distressed by its initial lukewarm reception and mixed reviews. However, the book's reputation has grown with time, earning it much critical acclaim, wide regard as one of his best books and indeed one of the great American novels.*Bruccoli A 15.1.a.
