        Tender is the Night: A Romance

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1934 First edition, first printing. Inscribed and signed by the author in black ink on front endpaper: "For Margaret Hurley / with much respect / + regard from / F Scott Fitzgerald / April 1936 / Ashville". Bound in the publisher's original dark blue cloth. A near fine copy, with some wear to the spine ends, light rubbing to the corners, a hint of spotting on the page edges and the front and back hinges. Overall, a very attractive copy. Fitzgerald inscribed this copy of Tender is the Night to his friend James B. Hurley's wife. Hurley as a clerk at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina, a resort hotel where the author resided from 1935 - 1936. Fitzgerald first traveled to Asheville on an extended visit due to personal health concerns about his lungs and stayed after he moved his wife Zelda to the Highland Hospital at Asheville. Hurley worked for Fitzgerald for nine months after applying to a classified advertisement for a typist. He typed Fitzgerald's manuscripts, manually manipulating his typewriter to create a triple-space between lines, Fitzgerald's preferred layout for editing. Additionally, Fitzgerald had Hurley assist with his finances, including contacting The Saturday Evening Post for payments when Fitzgerald's checking account was running low. When the two parted ways, Fitzgerald bequeathed Hurley with two manuscripts for his short stories and three signed novels, including this one. Bruccoli and Baughman, 124. Tender is the Night is Fitzgerald's last completed novel, centering on the life of American ex-patriots living in Paris and the French Riviera. Like many of his works, it is semi-autobiographical in nature, with Fitzgerald's friends serving as models for characters, including Pablo Picasso, the Cole Porters, and socialites Sara and Gerald Murphy, to whom the book is dedicated.. Illus. by Shenton, Edward. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.

At more than one hundred pages, with several dozen illustrations, extensive footnotes, and a bibliography, the book carries a significant scholarly cast. Linhart explains here, with many references to recent Soviet writing, the importance of dynamism, dialectical contrast, cropping, and titling to image-driven critique.").

And it was Kaufmann who then acquired the dramatic rights and eventually produced the successful 1937 stage version which ran for 207 performances and became the basis for two subsequent film versions

      Borden, Hants, Hampshire, England 1934 - On offer is a handwritten notebook-style instruction manual, as titled on the cover "Fencing Lessons Foil - Sabre - Epee". The inside front cover has a pastedown fully identifying the writer: "Serjeant T. Wells of the 1st BATTALION OXFORDSHIRE & BUCKINGHAMSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY. 19th Sept. to 13th Dec. 1934. Instructors Gartzen and Harkinson". An Index of the 67 page book shows that besides the lessons in the three sword types there are chapters on the Army Fencing Union, Pitches and Arenas and Bayonet Team Competitions. We are led to believe that this book is also a manual for the Instructor trainee as most pages have three columns headed: Pupil, Master, Remarks. The remarks appear to be helpful hints for the Instructor in dealing with the pupil. There are a number of hand drawn illustrations, including charts, tables, graphs and such plus there are quite a few little. 1.5" x 1", photographs which were cut from elsewhere and glued in as part of the lesson. In addition to the identification on the cover and inside front cover the back cover has Sjt. Wells handwritten address being we believe, Bordon, Hants [Hampshire]. Boards are cracked in the hinges and the netting shows but otherwise in very good shape. Provenance: From the library of a famed Hungarian fencing master, instructor, Olympian and coach.

        Thoughts Upon Hunting Kit in a Series of Nine Letters to a Friend

      Millbrook: Privately Printed for the author [by The Derrydale Press], 1934 - This is an almost unprocurable Derrydale Press title. The book appeared in two bindings: red paper boards with a printed white label, and in full leather with gilt medallion on upper cover. Siegel states that "We understand from a reliable source that upon housekeeping after Mr. Reynal's death, a large carton of Thoughts Upon Hunting Kit was taken to the dump -" First edition. No. 117 of 500 copies. 12mo. Illustrated with photographs, and a drawing by the author. In the regular red paper over boards, with white paper printed label on the upper cover. Fine in original glassine (chipped). Bookplate. In our experience this issue is rarer than the deluxe morocco binding. Siegel 83; Frazier R-6-a [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
