FITZGERALD, F. SCOTT Flappers and Philosophers.
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1922. Inscribed by Fitzgerald on the front blank, a later printing (November 1922). Publisher's cloth lettered in gilt on spine and stamped in blind on the upper cover. 7 1/4 x 5 inches (18.5 x 12.5 cm); 269 pp. Front hinge cracked, internally clean, the binding rubbed at corners, small stain to back cover, accompanied by a recent letter of authenticity from Lion Heart Autographs, New York.
Fitzgerald's first book of stories, humorously inscribed "Burton Whitney/from/his friend/Selma Lageroff/(F Scott Fitzgerald)". Here Fitzgerald has signed, and misspelled, the name of Swedish author Selma Lagerlof. The collection includes classics such as: "The Ice Palace," "The Offshore Pirate," and "Bernice Bobs Her Hair." This title is rarely encountered inscribed and we trace very few offered at auction. Bruccoli A.6.I.f.
