F. Scott Fitzgerald
Charles Scribner's Sons, 1934. First Edition. Advance copy of the First Edition of Firtzgerald's fourth and last novel, in the original wrappers contrived by the publisher from the dust jacket. Brucolli A14,I.a and Supplement (1980) note only a handful of copies: "One copy bound in wrappers made from the dust jacket has been located at ViU ... It may have been used as an advance or review copy. [The Supplement notes a couple of additional copies]. The Scribner's records indicate that 500 copies in wrappers were ordered; but since only one [three?] copy has been located, it seems doubtful that these copies were actually prepared." [Bruccoli, A,14.1.a] With corner loss to the top of the front panel affecting the "LD" in Fitzgerald, and the "S" in "is". The lost corner replaced now by a conservator with stock in plain green so as not to deceive the eye but to blend with the existing panel. With some "bleed" the verso of the front panel; and a bit of wrinkling and a light crease to the first blank leaf. There is a small stain to the leading edge of the textblock. Minor sunning to the spine. To call this uncommon would be an understatement. (Brucolli A14.I.a; Supplement (1980)). Very Good binding. [Attributes: First Edition]
