        [Manuscript]: A Prophet in his own Country

      [No place: no publisher. 1925]. Typed manuscript. 170pp., typed rectos only. Each chapter has been paper-clipped together, separate from the other chapters. Some oxidation from paper clips with some scattered tears and chips throughout, and moderate tears and chips to the final few pages, about near fine. Numerous pencil corrections, although a relatively finished draft. An apparently unpublished novel by William E. Batron about Jesus returning as an American in the early 20th Century. Also included is a good only original mailing envelope addressed to the publisher ("Bobbs Merrill Co.") with a return address that states, "From William E. Barton, Foxboro, Mass." Barton (1861-1930) was a religious scholar and prolific author of national acclaim -- reportedly his entry in the 1930 edition of Who's Who in America was the longest in the book. Today he is best known for his books about Abraham Lincoln and his great collection of Lincoln material, though several of his amusing religious parables have also lately been reprinted. .

        The Great Gatsby

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925 First edition, first printing. Publisher's dark blue-green cloth, front board lettering stamped in blind, spine lettering stamped in gilt. A fine copy, with only a hint of wear to the spine ends, very slight lean to the spine, else fine. A beautiful copy, free of any repairs or restoration. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Bruccoli A11. While it has since been regarded as masterful piece of classic literature, The Great Gatsby did not gain popularity until after the author's death in 1940. The novel tells the story of the star-crossed lovers Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan against the backdrop of wealthy and materialistic West Egg, Long Island, during the Prohibition Era. Although Fitzgerald meant the text to be critical of the 1920's social climate, today The Great Gatsby is beloved for its vivid descriptions of extravagant parties, palatial homes, and eccentric characters that are emblematic of the Jazz Age. The text remains extremely popular today and is widely taught in schools across the United States. The first edition was printed in a run of 20,870 copies; today, Scribner's sells almost 25 times as many copies per year as printed books and e-books.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.
