Fitzgerald, F. Scott
TENDER IS THE NIGHT
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1934. First edition in book form of Fitzgerald's last complete novel, a story of artistic and romantic disillusionment and the most personal of his works. Intimate and lyrical, TENDER draws from much of Fitzgerald's own experiences in the wake of THE GREAT GATSBY's success. While it was the next novel he started, he couldn't finish it and returned to it again and again for nearly a decade. His struggles in reaching his potential as an author, his love for and tragic connection with Zelda, and the bittersweet beauty of the recently crushed Jazz Age all make their way into this book. Individual lines and passages shine like poetry. But the novel didn't do as well as his others, so he kept revising it after publication; this first edition retains Fitzgerald's entirely original structure. A wonderful copy entirely unrestored and scarce thus. 7.25'' x 5''. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Original multicolor dust jacket depicting a Riviera scene, unclipped and unrestored. Fore edge machine deckle. [6], 408 pages. Lightest edgewear to jacket, primarily at spine extremities, just a hint of toning to spine. Faint spotting to front board. A superior copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
