Scott Fitzgerald's initial encore - his first collection of short fiction, published in 1920 to capitalize on the success of This Side of Paradise, the novel that had made him famous at the age of twenty-three. Some of his best early stories are included here: 'The Offshore Pirate', 'Bernice Bobs Her Hair', 'The Ice Palace' and 'Benediction'. In these narratives Fitzgerald presented his prototypical Jazz-Age heroines, beautiful and wilful young women who later became trademarks of his fiction. Part of the authoritative Cambridge Edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald, this volume now appears in paperback for the first time. It offers detailed explanatory notes, a record of variants and appendices tracing the composition and publication history of the stories.Hide synopsis

The first printing was 5000 copies and this scarce second printing was only 3000 copies. Bright and nearly fine with just light offset to the front endpaper from item previously laid in. The dust jacket, which is ONE OF THE SCARCEST FITZGERALD JACKETS, shows extensive professional repair, most noticeably on spine and at head of front panel where--unable to determine the correct text for what would appear to be "2nd Large Printing" (only "ge Printing" remain)--the conservationist opted to fill in with the orange, background color. Fortunately the W.E. Hill cover illustration, depicting a scene from "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" is wholly intact.

With a supplied fifth printing dust jacket. Housed in a dark green quarter morocco solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. One leaf roughly opened, very light traces of erasure to endpapers, spine lettering a little dull but an exceptionally nice copy. First edition, first printing. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, "For George W. with many congratulations and good wishes F. Sc ott Fitzgerald". The recipient was George W. Stair-a New York bookseller of the time. He retired from selling new books in the 1920s and was asked by Brentano's to set up a rare book division. It is tempting to think this book was presented to him to mark that occasion. Whatever is the case this is a lovely association from the New York literary scene of the Roaring Twenties.
