Great Gatsby

"SO WE BEAT ON, BOATS AGAINST THE CURRENT, BORNE BACK CEASELESSLY INTO THE PAST"

FITZGERALD, F. Scott. The Great Gatsby. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925. Octavo, original blue-green cloth. $11,500.

First edition of this landmark of 20th-century fiction.

Noted critic Cyril Connolly called Gatsby one of the half dozen best American novels: "Gatsby remains a prose poem of delight and sadness which has by now introduced two generations to the romance of America, as Huckleberry Finn and Leaves of Grass introduced those before it" (48). First printing, with "sick in tired" on page 205 and all other first issue points. Without extremely rare original dust jacket. Bruccoli A11.1.a.

A bit of foxing to first few leaves, small faint stain along text block outer edge; cloth exceptionally bright and fine. A beautiful copy.
