Description

    A Beautiful Copy in an Excellent Dust Jacket

    F. Scott Fitzgerald. All The Sad Young Men. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926.

    First edition. Octavo. 267 pages.

    Dark green cloth over boards. Blind-stamped lettering to front board. Gilt spine titles. Jacket illustration by Cleonike Damianakes Wilkins. A near fine book in an excellent dust jacket.

    Arthur Mizener, in his introductory essay to Flappers and Philosophers, explains that Fitzgerald once listed four of his stories "he would not be ashamed to see in a book with the work of writers like Conrad, Forster, and Lawrence (the stories were 'Absolution,' 'The Rich Boy,' 'The Diamond as Big as the Ritz,' and 'May Day')" (Flappers and Philosophers, page 1). Two of the stories are in this collection. "Absolution," which originally appeared in the June 1924 issue of The American Mercury, had been in an earlier draft of The Great Gatsby, but never made it into the final manuscript.
