The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald

  • Edition: First Facsimile Edition
  • Book condition: Fine
  • Quantity available: 1
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald Hardcover Facsimile of the First Edition Charles Scribner's Sons (a.k.a. Scribners) 1925 First Edition Library circa 1985. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket in Fine- Slipcase with just a hint of dustiness. Includes an information sheet concerning the publication history of Gatsby. A beautiful presentation of the first edition in facsimile. Just a hint of edge-wear to the top edge of the dust jacket, else a near perfect copy. The Great Gatsby is regarded as possibly the best American novel of the 20th century or at least in the top 5 along with Ernest Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises". As detailed in the insert, the book was a commercial failure, probably because of its stark criticism of the 1920's party culture of the time. It has since become regarded as a classic and a masterpiece of literature. First edition copies in nearly-complete dust jacket are typically priced at $200,000+. This is a wonderful alternative, a much more economic means of experiencing what the first editio ... Read more

Unfathomable City: A New Orleans Atlas by Rebecca Solnit & Rebecca Snedeker Trade Paperback (as issued) First Printing University of California Press 2013. SIGNED by Solnit in her typical fancy style on the half-title page. Appears to be uncommon in the first printing and very few signed copies of this book available. Already into many printings. (Both authors have done similar cultural atlases for New York and San Francisco) Like the bestselling Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas, this book is a brilliant reinvention of the traditional atlas, one that provides a vivid, complex look at the multi-faceted nature of New Orleans, a city replete with contradictions. More than twenty essays assemble a chorus of vibrant voices, including geographers, scholars of sugar and bananas, the city's remarkable musicians, prison activists, environmentalists, Arab and Native voices, and local experts, as well as the coauthors' compelling contributions. Featuring 22 full-color two-page-spread maps, Unfathomable City plumbs t ... Read more
