Cincinnati: The John Church Company, 1915
First edition. Fitzgerald’s second work for the Princeton University Triangle Club. A bit of foxing and creasing to the boards. Two little traces of damp stain at the bottom of to the front board. The rear hinge split but the contents firmly intact, nice and crisp internally. Overall a very good, unrestored example of this scarce title. Though he was socially and intellectually ambitious at Princeton, Fitzgerald was a largely indifferent student from the start. He joined the Triangle Club after he was cut from the football team his freshman year. Fitzgerald would write the lyrics for three shows at the club, but was not allowed to performed in any of them as his poor grades prohibited him from partaking in extracurricular activities. He did not graduate with the class of ’17, and instead left Princeton to join the army and finish writing This Side of Paradise.
