The dust jacket, which is ONE OF THE SCARCEST FITZGERALD JACKETS, shows extensive professional repair, most noticeably on spine and at head of front panel where--unable to determine the correct text for what would appear to be "2nd Large Printing" (only "ge Printing" remain)--the conservationist opted to fill in with the orange, background color. Fortunately the W.E. Hill cover illustration, depicting a scene from "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" is wholly intact.

THOUGHTBOOK OF FRANCIS SCOTT KEY FITZGERALD: In "The Princeton University Library Chronicle," Winter 1965. F. Scott Fitzgerald. THOUGHTBOOK OF FRANCIS SCOTT KEY FITZGERALD: In "The Princeton University Library Chronicle," Winter 1965.
Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Library, 1965. The only other appearance of this, Fitzgerald's adolescent diary from the years 1910-1911. The book of the same name notes on the copyright that it was reprinted from the contents of this issue; but Broccoli [A26] puts the publication date of the book at April 1965 and one would presume the Winter issue was issued after April. So perhaps the first appearance? Includes the introduction by John R. Kuehl (as in the book) followed by an inserted, unpaginated facsimile. Brick-red paperwraps with fading to spine and top edge, over-hanging cover edges a little wrinkled, and small tear at head of spine otherwise near fine. FIRST APPEARANCE?

CODENAME IAGO. Richard Flanagan, John Friedrich. CODENAME IAGO.
(Port Melbourne, Australia): Heinemann, (1991). The first edition and the only edition. Flanagan, winner of the 2014 Booker Prize for THE NARROW ROAD TO THE DEEP NORTH is "considered by many to be the finest Australian novelist of his generation" (The Economist). By contrast, Johann Friedrich Hohenberger, "John Friedrich," or, as he was also known, "Australia's greatest conman," was the subject of Victoria's biggest fraud case. At the time of Friedrich’s death, which was ruled a suicide (he was found dead on his farm near Sale, Victoria, with a single gunshot wound to the head on July 27, 1991), he was writing this posthumously published autobiography with the assistance of Flanagan. Simon Caterson, writing in The Australian, described it as "one of the least reliable but most fascinating memoirs in the annals of Australian publishing." In it, Friedrich claims that while working for an American construction company he was recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency and, under the codename "Iago," worked in Laos, Vietnam, Egypt, New Zealand and West Germany against far left-wing extremists before returning to Australia in 1975. The only known facts are that in November 1976, while on holiday in Victoria, Friedrich applied for a position with the National Safety Council of Australia (NSCA) and began working there January 1977. He rose to executive director in 1982, after which he transformed the company into a national search and rescue organization with loans from 27 banks, which agreed to lend him millions of dollars against little more than his word. Friedrich was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in 1988 "in recognition of service to the community, particularly in the area of industrial safety and search and rescue services". Then, in 1989, following the financial collapse of NSCA, Friedrich went into hiding. He was arrested after a nationwide and international manhunt and charged with one count of obtaining financial advantage by deception and eventually charged with court for fraud involving nearly $300 million. It was subsequently discovered that he was not even an Australian citizen. (Wikipedia). Very good to near fine in pictorial paperwraps with light edgewear. No hardback edition.
