        Fine Typed Letter Signed to the Mayor of Chester (1894-1972, King of Great Britain, Later the Duke of Windsor)

      1926 - explaining that this "first visit to this historic city ." was so long "deferred . largely due to circumstances, such as the War and my many overseas tours . I trust that I can take the cordiality of my welcome on arriving here . to mean that the citizens of Chester . have forgiven me . Chester, with its picturesque buildings, its unique walls and fine Cathedral Church has much of interest to offer. Its history, since the days when it was an important Roman settlement and the headquarters of a Legion, is a fascinating study, but . the City has kept abreast of the times, and I am greatly looking forward to the programme that has been arranged for me ." thanking the Mayor and sharing his "hope that other opportunities will be given to me of meeting the inhabitants of a City with which I am so closely associated, and in whose prosperity . I shall always take the deepest interest .", 1 side folio, with gilt Prince of Wales feathers at the head, Chester, 20th October yellowed on the verso of the conjugate blank, the letter itself is fine Philip Ziegler, in his recent biography of Edward VIII, notes that when the young Prince was invested as Prince of Wales in 1911, at Caernarvon Castle in Wales, the Mayor and Aldermen of Chester were the only people unhappy with the ceremony, feeling that as Earl of Chester, the ceremony should have happened in their City. The remarks at the beginning of this letter indicate his awareness of their sensitive feelings on the subject. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ALL THE SAD YOUNG MEN

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good dust jacket. Octavo. Blue/green cloth as issued with title stamped in blind on the front cover and in gold on the spine; a very bright copy in Very Good condition or better; light rubbing at the corners and spine ends; top corner of the back board is mildly bumped; the stamping on the spine remains bright; Scribner's seal on the copyright page; type on pages 38, 248 and page number 90 remains strong and unbattered; a few leaves have creases from having the corners turned down; vertical crease running the length of the front free endpaper; a few leaves at the beginning have been roughly opened; otherwise a clean bright copy in uncommon dust jacket; dust jacket is separated at the rear joint as well as at the bottom of the spine; all pieces are held in place in a mylar cover though there is evidence of a few pieces of tape on the verso; piece missing at the top of the spine affecting the title (a facsimile has been laid in to give the book a better shelf presence); flap folds have some closed tears; the lips on the front panel illustration are battered indicating it came a bit later in the run. A nice copy in scarce dust jacket of Fitzgerald's third collection of short stories. While Fitzgerald is most remembered for his novels, in particular The Great Gatsby, he made his living by his stories which were published in the popular magazines of the day -- Saturday Evening Post, The Smart Set, American Mercury, and others. Scholars have argued that Fitzgerald used the short stories to work out themes in service of the novels that followed. While his short stories were typically far more popular than his novels, it was in his longer fiction that Fitzgerald felt he was practicing his art. All the Sad Young Men is the collection that followed The Great Gatsby which at its publication was a critical and commercial failure but is now thought to be Fitzgerald's most important work—indeed some have gone so far to call it the ?"great American novel.?" All the Sad Young Men is a masterful collection including ?"Absolution,?" often thought to be a false start to Gatsby as well as often anthologized ?"Winter Dreams.?"

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Göggingen, 29. Mai 1926. 3 SS. 8vo. Auf 2 Ansichtskarten und einem Doppelbogen mit Initialen. Mit eh. Kuvert.. An die Sängerin u. Freundin Gertrud Full in München. Er ist wieder im ruhigen Göggingen, "es gibt kaum einen heilsameren Ort für mich ewigen Flüchtling", doch "dann gilt es wieder ärztliche Energien zu entwickeln". "[ ] Viele Jahre belehren mich nun schon, daß meine so wichtigen Morgenstunden ganz von der Art des vergangenen Abends abhängen; Einsamkeit u. Schweigen, unter diesen Zeichen muß der Abend stehen, dann gib es eine gute klare Morgenstunde. Und auch sonst gibt es heimliche Einstellungen, die das Leben bestimmen [ ]". Erschienen sei noch nichts "[ ] Ein neues großes Stück die Heilungen' hab ich hier wenigstens in den Hauptstücken vollendet; lange Zeit hielt ich es für unausführbar, aber in der Münchner Pfingstwoche hat sich plötzlich ein Weg gezeigt. Nun wird der Entwurf eingesiegelt u. begraben; vielleicht, nach Monaten, ist er zur Auferstehung reif [ ]". - Die Postkarten mit Ansichten Göggingens.
