First edition, third printing. One of the approximately 500 copies for ABA members with tipped-in "The Author's Apology" leaf signed by Fitzgerald,

[With:] 1 page ALS from Fitzgerald  in original mailing envelope tipped in at rear, to a Mr. Heilner, 19 June, 1920. Fitzgerald thanks Heilner for his letter, and mentions that he often visits "25 west 45" in order to visit George Nathan "who has published a good deal of my stuff in the Smart Set." He also references the marriage of a mutual acquaintance. Before closing and boldly signing the letter, Fitzgerald notes that he looks forward to seeing Heilner's book.

The letter was written to Van Campen Heilner, a naturalist, explorer, writer, and filmmaker. As an adolescent, Heilner drifted from school to school, and spent his summers on the Jersey shore, where he fell in love with surf fishing. He became a prodigy in outdoor writing, and while still in his teens had several stories published in major American sporting publications.
