Item Description: 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. Bookseller Inventory # 102632

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. Fine 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. 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 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 Gatsby 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. Sheilah Graham's copy with her signature to the front free endpaper. Graham, one of the most influential gossip columnists in Hollywood, is remembered today as the last lover of novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald, their relationship through her autobiographical account of that period, Beloved Infidel, a best-seller, which was also made into a film. In her youth, she was a freelance writer for Fleet Street in London, and had published several short stories and two novels. These early experiences would converge in her career in Hollywood, that spanned nearly four decades, as a successful columnist and author. In a letter from May 1940 to S.J. Perelman, Fitzgerald invited him to visit, promising "Sheilah will be with me, just as merry as can be, to greet you on the porch with a julep" (Letters, Turnbull, ed., 1963). Little more than six months later it was Graham who would find Fitzgerald at home dead of a heart attack. Bruccoli A11.1.a; Connolly, The Modern Movement 48.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 bright. A significant association. 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: 1925. First Edition. FITZGERALD, F. Scott. The Great Gatsby. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925. Octavo, original green cloth. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $6800.First edition of this landmark of 20th-century fiction, Fitzgerald's haunting tale of "empty elegance and impossible love"ť in the Jazz Age (Julie Bosman) and one of America's greatest novels.In 1922, having already written This Side of Paradise and The Beautiful and Damned, Fitzgerald told his publisher Max Perkins, "I want to write something new""something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned" (Bruccoli, 198). The triumphant result three years later was The Great Gatsby, published just before what Fitzgerald called the summer of "1000 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). NPR book critic Maureen Corrigan declared, "The Great Gatsby is one of the first modern novels to look squarely at the void, yet it stops short of taking a flying leap". It's Fitzgerald's thin-but-durable urge to affirm that finally makes Gatsby worthy of being our Great American Novel" (Corrigan, 23). First printing,with "sick in tired" on page 205 and all other first-issue points. Without extremely rare original dust jacket. Bruccoli A11.1.a. Interior clean, cloth fresh with slight bubbling to top edge of rear board, top front corner lightly bumped, gilt bright. A lovely copy in about-fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 107412

A Fine copy of the book with bright gilt, clean boards and appearing unread. Previous owner's name on the front end paper, otherwise unmarked. Easily the finest copy we have handled.Fitzgerald's masterpiece and one of the great novels of the 20th century. Fitzgerald intended the novel to be a "consciously artistic achievement" and "something extraordinary and beautiful and simple, and intricately patterned." The book took Fitzgerald two years to write, and he worked on it under a variety of different titles, including Dinner at Trimalchio's and Under the Red, White and Blue.Unfortunately, when it was first released "The Great Gatsby" was neither a commercial nor a critical success. In fact, even though Fitzgerald received a great deal of praise from many literary lights of the period - including TS Eliot and Willa Cather -- the book did not achieve its current level of popularity and renown until after Fitzgerald's death, when it was distributed as a cheap paperback to GIs during World War II. The book has maintained its critical and commercial acclaim ever since, and has sold over 25 million copies. In 1960, the Times would call it "a classic of twentieth century American fiction." It has been adapted into numerous film versions, including a 1974 production starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, and with a script by Francis Ford Coppola. "A curious book, a mystical, glamourous story of today." (Contemporary New York Times Review). Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 1637

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).
