Lot Details

Lot 284
FITZGERALD, F. SCOTT This Side of Paradise.
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1920. First edition, a presentation copy "For William Henneman/with best wishes-/this old old book;/the sight of it reminds/me, all too dramaticaly [sic],/that I'm almost/forty/F. Scott Fitzgerald/Spring 1931". Publisher's green cloth. 7 1/2 x 5 1/8 inches (19 x 13 cm); [8], 305 pp. Slight lean, boards rubbed and a bit soiled, spine toned, short tear to the head of the spine, front hinge cracked at endpaper, some slight smudging to inscription (book was closed while the ink was still wet).
An amusing and perhaps even slightly pathetic inscription; Fitzgerald was actually a mere stripling of 35 when he wrote this!


C Estate of Frances "Peggy" Brooks

Estimate: $5,000 - $8,000
Sold for $7,500 (includes buyer's premium)
