Lot 99
FITZGERALD, F. SCOTT All the Sad Young Men.
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926. First edition, first printing with the publisher's seal to copyright, the type perfect on p. 90 and only slight battering to pages 38 and 248. Publisher's dark bluish green cloth, in the original unclipped dust jacket with $2.00 price. 7 1/2 x 5 inches; 267 pp. A very presentable example of the jacket which is free of restoration; the upper jacket joint is splitting from the bottom, a few short edge creases, unobtrusive small red stain at mid jacket spine, the cloth fine and bright.

A fine copy of All the Sad Young Men, in the first issue jacket without battered lips as noted in later issues. The Cleon designed jacket features a striking Art Deco image printed in green and black of a young woman holding up the globe. The front flap of the jacket prints reviews of The Great Gatsby, published the year before. Bruccoli A13a-c. (revised edition, 1987).


Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500
