This Side of Paradise. F. Scott Fitzgerald.

This Side of Paradise

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1920. Cloth. A very sharp, well-preserved copy of the April, 1920 true 1st edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald's first published book. Tight and Near Fine in its dark-green cloth, with bright, very lightly-dimmed gilt-titling along the spine. Internally, clean as could be, with no writing or markings to speak of. Firmly-bound, clean, crisp boards. Only 3,000 copies of the 1st edition were printed and, as legend has it, these were sold out in 3 days, prompting a 2nd and even a 3rd printing to come out in the same month, April of 1920. (Facsimile dustjacket included). Near Fine. Item #18604

Price: $2,000.00
