Description:
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1934. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. First edition. Lightly worn cloth, near fine in an attractive, first issue dustwrapper with an unfaded spine and some minor repair and restoration at the extremities. Fitzgerald had all but fallen off the map when this, his last completed novel, was issued. A portrait of expatriates on the French Riviera, it was supposedly based on Gerald and Sara Murphy but is as likely based on the Fitzgeralds themselves. The 1962 film version by Henry King, the last of his many films adapted from literary novels, featured Jason Robards and Jennifer Jones. Housed in a custom clamshell case. A very nice copy of a desirable and very uncommon title, almost never encountered without fading to the spine. *Connolly 100*.

Description:
1968. Very Good. A large archive of manuscripts and related literary papers of gay writer Richard Blake Brown including novels, plays, poetry, travel writing, and memoirs. The collection consists of about 130 holograph and typescript manuscripts: (50 notebooks of holograph manuscripts; 38 volumes of bound typescripts; 39 unbound typescripts; two holograph booklets; one unbound holograph manuscript); seven of Brown's published novels (five of which are annotated by him and have extra material laid in); and about 60 miscellaneous items (including manuscript extracts, letters. and photographs). The bulk of the writings date from the late 1920s-1950s. Richard Blake Brown (1902-1968) is an overlooked figure in the British literary scene of the interwar period: a remarkable man and an exceptional writer, Brown's open homosexuality was a source of puzzlement even to fellow gay writer Denton Welch, who once exclaimed in response to a 1946 letter from Brown: "Is this exhibitionism or vanity or what?"
