About This Item

Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1920 First Edition, third printing SIGNED by F. Scott Fitzgerald on the glossy leaf bearing "The Author's Apology." A beautiful copy. According to the Fitzgerald Bibliography by Bruccoli, "500 copies of the third printing have a special tipped-in glossy leaf bearing "The Author's Apology" each signed by Fitzgerald. These copies were prepared for a meeting of the American Booksellers Association." The book is bound in the ORIGINAL publisher's cloth and is in amazing shape. The gold lettering on the spine is present, and the boards are crisp with slight wear to the edges. The binding is tight and square with NO cocking. The pages are clean with no writing, marks or bookplates in the book. A superb copy SIGNED by the author. We buy F. Scott Fitzgerald First Editions.. Signed by Author(s). 3rd Edition. Hardcover. Fine.

Synopsis

This Side of Paradise is the debut novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Published in 1920, and taking its title from a line of the Rupert Brooke poem Tiare Tahiti, the book examines the lives and morality of post-World War I youth. Its protagonist, Amory Blaine, is an attractive Princeton University student who dabbles in literature and has the book's theme of love warped by greed and status-seeking.

A NOTE ABOUT CONDITION:
Our top condition is fine. Other dealers may use the words mint, untouched, very fine, etc. which mean the same thing. We try to refrain from using general terms like G, G+, G++, VG+, VG++, because we want to describe what the copy of the book really looks like. As a result, we almost never get any returns since the books are actually better looking than the way that they are described.
