Fitzgeral, F. Scott, TENDER IS THE NIGHT.

$22,500.00

First edition. A novel published nine years after the THE GREAT GATSBY. Decorations by Edward Shenton. Although considered one of his more important books now–it is one of the Connolly 100 and is listed in Modern Library’s Top 100 Novels–at the time of publication, the critical reception was damning. So much so that Fitzgerald allowed changes in later editions of the book. Only years after his death was the text restored to the original as published herein. The barest wear to corners of original green cloth, very light offset on endpapers, and the gilt on the word “Tender” on spine just a bit rubbed, otherwise fine in pictorial dustjacket with minor restoration to top edge and flap fold. Housed in a specially made clamshell box with leather label.
