helpful bit of actual facts: first state (April 1925) has the lower case
"j" in Jay Gatsby on back of jacket; second state (April 1925)
has the hand-corrected or printed upper case "J" in Jay Gatsby
on back of jacket; and, the third state (August 1925) has book reviews on
back of dust jacket, as well as on both inner flaps. Otherwise, all

good with several evident flaws. First: the chips. All four
corners of front panel have chips of varying dimensions, the most
significant being that over the "T" in "The."
Upper left corner has a small chip at gutter which extends over top of
head of dust jacket spine. Upper right corner of front panel has
tiny chip. Lower right corner of front panel has a noticeable chip
of about a half-inch. Lower left corner of front panel has a sliver
of a chip. Dust jacket spine has chips on head and toe, both being
noticeable. The back panel has a noticeable chip in upper right
corner. Dust jacket has light residue from damp-staining to lower
left-hand of dust jacket's front panel. Several closed-ended tears
have been conserved on back of dust jacket with neutral pH, acid-free,
removable tape. Okay, that's the negative.
dust jacket still retains deep colors and bright, haunting imagery.
there were 20,870 copies of the first edition book printed, as well as
20,870 first and second states of the dust jacket, there were only 3,000
third state jackets printed. And therefore, a first edition (first
printing or second printing) with a third state dust jacket is definitely
exceedingly difficult to acquire.
