New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1925
First edition. Second printing, with the textual errors corrected. An exceptionally crisp, fine copy. Former ownership label of author Ralph H. Graves on the front pastedown, his card for submission to “Features and Fiction” in New York. A tiny blemish at the top edge of the outer text block, and very slight bumping at the foot of the spine only. Else an uncommonly beautiful example of the great American novel. The gilt on the spine bright and unfaded, and contents fresh throughout. Although behind in priority, this second issue of Fitzgerald’s masterpiece is actually less common that the first. The print run only consisted of 3000 copies, many of which remained unsold during the author’s lifetime.
