Description

First edition, first printing in the legendary original dust jacket.

In the world of book collecting, The Great Gatsby is the most famous and elusive of all.

As a collectible its reputation lies in the celebrated and rare dust jacket by Francis Cugat. Fitzgerald was so taken with Cugat's painting that, when the publishers delayed the publication of Gatsy by another season, he begged his editor to ensure it would be saved for him: 'For Christs sake don't give anyone that jacket you're saving for me. I've written it into the book!'.

Notoriously elusive and highly sought after, this jacket is a symbol of the triumph of the book as an art object.

A wonderful investement and one of the few copies on the market.
