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.

 

 

ALL THE SAD YOUNG MEN

FIRST EDITION

INSCRIBED BY

F. SCOTT FITZGERALD

TO ANNE OBER

(Wife of Fitzgerald's literary agent)

Harold Ober was F. Scott Fitzgerald's for most of Fitzgerald's

literary career.  Ober often lent Fitzgerald in advance of payment for the

many short stories Fitzgerald wrote and published to pay

for his and Zelda's generally exceptional, sometimes exotic, often expensive lifestyle.

 

Harold Ober's signature appears on the front pastedown of this book.

It's difficult to think of a better association copy, other, perhaps, than ALL THE SAD YOUNG MEN inscribed to Ring Lardner, to wom the book is dedicated.

Fitzgerald's relationship with Harold Ober and his family spanned from approximately 1920 and up until Fitzgerald's death in 1940.  Sometimes the relationship was tempestuous.  Most often it was friendly, caring, and endearing -- Ober an adopted relatively doing the best he could to keep Fitzgerald on track to make the best of his literary career.

At one time, Scottie Fitzgerald, daughter of F. Scott and Zelda,

resided with the Obers while F. Scott tended to the mental health needs of Zelda.

This book has a superb provenance: sold to Kenneth Rendell in 2001 by descendants of Harold Ober; sold to William Reese in 2004; afterwards, purchased by us at Mt. Gothic Tomes and Colorado Artifactual in 2019.

The original dust jacket is supplied and was most likely discarded several decades ago.

Book is very good to very good plus condition; front and back cloth covers being in very good plus to near fine condition.  However, the spine cloth has seen significant use, rubbing and fading.  Still, binding is strong and book feels tight.

Interior pages show occasional light foxing; page edges exhibited faint toning.  Otherwise, book is clean and impressive.  No noticeable "battering" of type throughout text, and therefore assumed to be a first edition, first printing.

Original dust jacket is in very good plus to near fine condition.  Shows no "battering" of lips.  Has some light wear at head and toe of spine; strong hinges; original price present on inner front flap.

 

Signed or inscribed first edition copies of ALL THE SAD YOUNG MEN are far from readily available in the F. Scott Fitzgerald market; and, we are very proud to exhibit this excellent copy, especially because of its association to literary agent Harold Ober and the emotion-laden inscription to his wife, Anne Ober.

Price: $125,000.00

"... 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
