The Great Gatsby

By Fitzgerald, F Scott




Written in 1925, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is widely considered to be one of the author’s greatest works. Set in New York City and Long Island during the Roaring Twenties, the focus of the story is (of course) its title character, Jay Gatsby, and his unswerving desire to be reunited with Daisy Buchanan, the love he lost five years earlier. However, Nick Carraway, who happens to be both Gatsby’s neighbor and Daisy’s cousin, narrates Gatsby's journey from poverty to wealth, into the arms of his beloved, and eventually to death.

The Great Gatsby is undoubtedly one of the greatest American literary documents of the 1920s, the decade for which Fitzgerald himself coined the term “Jazz Age.” However, in writing the book, Fitzgerald was in fact holding up a mirror to the society of which he was a part. In true Modernist fashion, The Great Gatsby addresses the social issues of the period — namely materialism and displaced spirituality — that ultimately led the decline of the era.

The novel’s initial sales situation was less than impressive; fewer than 25,000 copies were sold by Fitzgerald’s death in 1940. But The Great Gatsby gained great popularity during WWII as the critical mainstream began to embrace the author’s work. The Armed Services Editions circulated 150,000 copies to troops alone. Today, The Great Gatsby has sold over 25 million copies worldwide, sells an additional 500,000 copies annually, and is Scribner's most popular title. Ranked #2 on the Modern Library’s list of the 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century, the novel is also listed on their Top 100 Novels as well as The Observer’s All-Time 100 Best Novels and Time Magazine’s 100 Best Modern Novels.

The Great Gatsby has resulted in a number of adaptations, including Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 major motion picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, and Joel Edgerton. 

First edition identification and notes

Charles Scribner’s Sons first published the Great Gatsby in April of 1925. A highly valued collectible, first editions can be identified by a number of points of issue, including a typo on the back of the dust jacket that spells “jay Gatsby” with a lowercase “j,” over which a correction has been made (by hand) in ink or with a stamp. Other points specific to the first edition include “chatter” on page 60, line 16; “northern” on page 119, line 22; “sick in tired” on page 205, lines 9-10; and “Union Street Station” on page 211, lines 7-8.

The cover of the first edition of The Great Gatsby is among the most celebrated in American literature. Artist Francis Cugat’s design depicts disembodied eyes and a mouth over a blue skyline with images of naked women reflected in the irises. It has been said that Fitzgerald so loved the art (which was completed before the book), that he rewrote parts of the book to better incorporate it.

With its original dust jacket, the rare first edition of The Great Gatsby has sold for between $100,000 and $150,000. Not too shabby — considering that same book sold for just $2 in 1925.

Other collectible or notable editions

Chatto and Windus published the first UK edition of The Great Gatsby in 1926. With its original dust jacket, the UK edition has sold for between $12,500 and $25,000.

The Great Gatsby.

FITZGERALD, F. Scott.

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 to his office in the writers' building and "Alcatraz" the MGM lot – although of course he used his experiences there in his last, unfinished novel, published in 1941 as The Last Tycoon. According to family history, Fitzgerald and Goldman knew each other prior to their time together at MGM. This seems to be corroborated by the warmth of the present inscription. Both writers attended Ivy League schools (Goldman at Columbia) and both spent a good amount of time in France among the ex-pat community of writers. Inscribed copies of this novel are notably rare. There were no presentation copies inscribed by the author in the book at publication date, as Fitzgerald was in Europe at the time. This copy is of the first printing, the first state of the text with Scribner's seal and all other points.

The Great Gatsby.

Fitzgerald, F. Scott

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 emotional side to avoid the tears leaking from the socket of the left eye, or the large false face peering around the corner of a character's head. If there is a clear conscience, a book can survive -- at least in one's feelings about it. On the contrary, if one has a guilty conscience, one reads what one wants to hear out of reviews. In addition, if one is young and willing to learn, almost all reviews have a value, even the ones that seem unfair. 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 Gatsby one of the half dozen best American novels: "Gatsby remains a prose poem of delight and sadness which has by now introduced two generations to the romance of America, as Huckleberry Finn and Leaves of Grass introduced those before it" (Modern Movement 48). Consistently gaining popularity after World War II, the novel became an important part of American high school curricula. It was the basis for numerous stage and film adaptations. Gatsby had four film adaptations, with two exceptionally big-budget versions: the 1974 version starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, as well as Baz Luhrmann's 2013 version starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carrie Mulligan. Fitzgerald's granddaughter praised Lurhmann's adaptation, stating "Scott would be proud.

The Great Gatsby

FITZGERALD, F. SCOTT

New York: First Editions 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. As new in dust jacket. Enclosed in the publisher’s cloth slipcase. Karen Black is among America’s most accomplished actors, an Academy Award nominee, a Golden Globe winner, and has received many other awards for her performances. Three of her films have been chosen by the Library of Congress for the National Film Registry declaring them national treasures. Among her films are Five Easy Pieces, Easy Rider, Nashville, The Day of the Locust, Family Plot, Burnt Offerings, Portnoy’s Complaint, etc.

As first Russian edition (1965), this book is printed without epigraph by Thomas Parke D'Invilliers - a pen name of Fitzgerald. The edition is illustrated by Vyacheslav Dozorets (1941-1993) – graphic, art editor later art editor-in-chief of the Ukranian publishing house Dnipro. We couldn't trace any copy in USA via OCLC.
