Cloth hardcover in dust jacket, 307 pp., clean unmarked text, Near Fine copy in Near Fine dust jackets, light wear to the edges of some pages, a bit of wear to the tips and edges of the dust jacket including creasing and rubbing.

Bruccoli--on the acknowledgments page, Trogdon calls Bruccoli his "greatest teacher." Matthew Joseph Bruccoli (1931-2008) was the foremost F. Scott Fitzgerald scholar and bibliographer of his time. Additionally, he wrote on, and edited critical editions of Hemingway, Hammett, Cozzens, Thomas Wolfe, John O'Hara, and Vladimir Nabokov. He studied bibliography under the tutelage of Fredson Bowers and worked with Jacob Blanck on the Bibliography of American Literature. He was responsible for the republication and rediscovery of dozens of forgotten American novels, and went on to be the editor and publisher of the 400+ volume Dictionary of Literary Biography, and was the chief editor of the University of Pittsburgh Press bibliography series.
