About this Item: Scribner's, NY, 1923. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. No Jacket. First Edition. A play by Fitzgerald, written at the height of his popularity and the last book he published before his masterwork, The Great Gatsby. As a play it was assumed to have a much smaller market than his novels and its first printing, 7650 copies, reflects that: by comparison, The Beautiful and Damned had a first printing of 20,600 copies. Attractive owner bookplate front pastedown; a fine copy, with the spine gilt still bright and the binding tight, lacking the rare dust jacket. Unless otherwise noted, our first editions are first printings. Seller Inventory # 027607

About this Item: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1923. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First edition. Spine lettering dull, a very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. For reasons unknown to us, this copy is Inscribed by Harold H. Knerr, probably the foremost illustrator of the Katzenjammer Kids: "With kindest wishes & best wishes from yours sincerely, Harold H. Knerr." Beneath his inscription, Knerr has drawn his two greatest creations, the mischievous Katzenjammer Kids, Hans and Fritz. Originally created by Rudolph Dirks in 1897, and based on the "Max und Moritz" cartoon pranksters and bad boys created by German artist Wilhelm Busch. Knerr took over the cartoon in 1914, after a lawsuit between the Hearst and Pulitzer papers, and continued until his death in 1949, and created the version of the Katzenjammers best known today. A pleasing little inscription drawing connecting the "bad boy" comic icons to the infant terrible of the 1920s literary world. Fitzgerald's only play. Seller Inventory # 83000

About this Item: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1923. Hardcover. First Edition. Fitzgerald's last book published before his masterpiece THE GREAT GATSBY which had a print run of 20,870 copies while this book had only 7,650 published. As with the better known GATSBY, this title, Fitzgerald's only published full-length play, also explores the American Dream but here with more comic intent and more pathetic results. The main character, Jerry Frost, strives to be President of the United States, if he is unable to make it as a postman. The quotation Fitzgerald places on the center of the title page sums it up: "Any man who doesn't want to get on in the world, to make a million dollars, and maybe even park his toothbrush in the White House, hasn't got as much to him as a good dog has -- he's nothing more or less than a vegetable." Bruccoli A 10.I.a Slight foxing to the endpapers. A Fine, bright copy in a Very Good, unrestored example of the uncommon dustwrapper that has a light stain at the bottom portion of the spine and an inch-deep chip at the top of the front cover obliterating most of the "T" in the word "The".
