New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1941.
Hardcover. First edition. Blue cloth lettered in gilt. Small stain on front fly, else an attractive near fine copy in very good dustwrapper with small nicks and a modest chip on the rear panel, a couple of creased tears, and a little sunning at the spine. Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author Paul Horgan's copy with his small bookplate on the front pastedown, and his lightly penciled notes on the verso of the rear free endpaper. The novel Fitzgerald was working on at the time of his death in 1940, loosely based on the life of MGM producer Irving Thalberg, published a year later with the editorial assistance of Fitzgerald's classmate Edmund Wilson. Fitzgerald was rapidly fading from public and literary consciousness at the time, and this book had a limited audience. Consequently it is relatively uncommon, especially as represented in an association copy.
