F. SCOTT FITZGERALD, Page 11

First Editions

 

"... My whole theory of writing I can sum up in one sentence: An author ought to write for the youth of his own generation, the critics of the next, and the schoolmasters of ever afterward ...." from The Author's Apology, THIS SIDE OF PARADISE, 1st edition, 3rd printing, 1920.

 

THIS SIDE OF PARADISE, 1920, by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Author's first book.

THIS SIDE OF PARADISE, 1st edition, 3rd printing, 1 of approximately 500 copies fashioned for the American Booksellers Association meeting.  A special page originally tipped in by the publisher with a photograph of a very young F. Scott and especially signed by Fitzgerald.  1920. 

THIS SIDE OF PARADISE. by F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1st edition/3rd printing.  "1920" printed on title page; "Published April, 1920.  Reprinted twice in April, 1920" on copyright page.  Brucolli, A5.I.c.

It was estimated by Prof. Matthew Bruccoli that about 500 copies of this printing had a tipped-in glossy leaf inserted into them with "The Author's Apology" -- each sheet having a photograph of a very young F. Scott Fitzgerald and each having been signed by him.  These copies were specially prepared for a conference of the American Booksellers Association.  There were a total of 5,000 copies in the 3rd printing; 3,000 in the first printing and 3,025 in the second.

Heywood Broun's opinion of Fitzgerald after interviewing him: "... Having heard Mr. Fitzgerald, we are not entirely minded to abandon our notion that he is a rather complacent, somewhat pretentious and altogether self-conscious young man ...."  Broun's comment inspired Fitzgerald to write this "Apology" and have it disrupted in the May 1920 American Booksellers Association meeting.  Some Sort of Epic Grandeur, Page 140.

Book is in original green cloth; 305 pages, plus "Author's Apology" signed insert.  Book is in very good plus condition, except gilt spine lettering is dulled.  Internal pages are bright and clean.  There has been a neat reinforcement of the inner front hinge. 

Price: $15,500.00

 

Please note: all our F. Scott Fitzgerald signatures and/or inscriptions have verifiable provenance.  We invite you to inquire about any of the signed or inscribed Fitzgerald books that are of interest to you.

 

THIS SIDE OF PARADISE, 1st edition, 1st printing. April 1920 on copyright page.  F. Scott Fitzgerald's first book -- the one that rocketed him to fame.  1 of only 3,000 copies published in the first printing, with 42 printing errors, as listed in Bruccoli's Descriptive Bibliography, A 5.1.a

Condition: very good plus, bright gilt lettering on spine; previous owner's name on front flyleaf, dated 1920; a few light flaws on covers, but otherwise fresh looking.  If interested, please inquire.

"... But never again as during that all too short period when he and I were one person, when the fulfilled future and the wistful past were mingled in a single gorgeous moment -- when life was literally a dream...."  F. Scott Fitzgerald, from 'Early Success,' The Crack Up, October 1937
