The Great Gatsby

FITZGERALD, F. SCOTT

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: First Edition Library, 1989. 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 ...

The Great Gatsby.

Fitzgerald, F. Scott

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: The Modern Library, 1934. First Modern Library edition of the author's masterpiece, with the first appearance of Fitzgerald's new introduction. Octavo, original green cloth. Inscribed by the author on the half title page, "For Lillian Abercrombie at the beginning of a tour of work F. Scott Fitzgerald." Near fine in a very good dust jacket with some rubbing to the extremities and some small chips. Housed in a full custom morocco box. The first Modern Library edition of The Great Gatsby was a resounding commercial failure, and many copies were remaindered with the caption "discontinued title" printed on the jacket's front panel. The present copy represents one of the earlier, non-remaindered copies, and like all of the first Modern Library editions of The Great Gatsby, features Fitzgerald's new introduction, with his own, now-famous take on his masterwork: "I think it is an honest book, that is to say, that one used none of one's virtuosity to get an effect, and, to boast again, one soft-pedalled the ...

The Great Gatsby.

Fitzgerald, F. Scott

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925. First edition, second printing of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original green cloth, gilt titles to the spine. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper,"For Esther Sidman on her 21st birthday from her admirer. F Scott Fitzgerald, Hollywood, 1938." In near fine condition with a touch of wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Great Gatsby's signed and inscribed by Fitzgerald are rare. 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 Ga ... Read more

The Great Gatsby

FITZGERALD, F. Scott

  • Book condition: Fair
  • Quantity available: 1
London: Chatto & Windus, 1926. Hardcover. Fair. First English edition. Light blue cloth lettered in black, the remainder binding, one of 350 copies (the bibliographer Bruccoli had not seen this binding). A poor copy. Tiny neat name "W. Merriss" at top of the front fly, lacking nearly the top half of the spine, drink stains on the front board, hinges repaired, lacking the ridiculously rare dustwrapper. Housed in a custom cloth chemise and quarter morocco slipcase titled in gilt. Inscribed on the front free endpaper by Fitzgerald to Golden Age film director King Vidor: "For King Vidor / in admiration / and friendship / from / F. Scott "Gin" Fitzgerald. Paris, June 1928." Fitzgerald met Vidor when he worked in Hollywood as a screenwriter and later based a character in his controversial short-story, "Crazy Summer," on the famous director. The small owner's name is that of William Merriss, a close friend of Irvin S. Cobb's grandson, Thomas Cobb Brody, whose m ... Read more

FITZGERALD, F. Scott.

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 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 ... Read more
