A first edition, first printing copy of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender Is the Night.

  • F. Scott Fitzgerald (American).
  • New York: Charles Scribners' Sons, 1934.
  • Octavo.
  • Publisher's green cloth, titles to spine gilt, with pictorial dust jacket.

Fitzgerald worked for six years on his most accomplished and ambitious novel. Its complex structure and delayed publication met with little critical acclaim. Fitzgerald's star had already faded after the crash of 1929. As the decades passed, however—and especially post Mitzner's 1948 book The Other Side of Paradise—Tender Is the Night became more and more obviously a masterpiece. Also, there were few more beautiful books ever issued.
