A curated selection of works by F. Scott Fitzgerald, including first editions and early printings. Noteworthy titles include first editions, first printings of Flappers and Philosophers and Tender Is the Night, along with a first edition, first state of Taps at Reveille.
F. Scott Fitzgerald, a luminary of 20th-century American literature, vividly encapsulated the glitz and glamor of the Jazz Age and the Roaring Twenties, along with the melancholy and disillusionment that followed World War I. Known for exploring the nuances of the American Dream—its promise and its pitfalls—Fitzgerald's works are timeless explorations of society, class, wealth, and romantic idealism on one hand, and opulence and moral bankruptcy on the other.
