FLAPPERS AND PHILOSOPHERS. F. Scott Fitzgerald. FLAPPERS AND PHILOSOPHERS.

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?
