The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald

1925 - Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York - 1st edition, 1st issue
‘So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.’

First edition of what is now considered a landmark of 20th century fiction, and the epitome of the Jazz Age in American literature, which incredibly, sold very little during Fitzgerald’s lifetime.

‘I believe that on the first night I went to Gatsby’s house I was one of the few guests who had actually been invited. People were not invited – they went there.’

A Moveable Feast - Sketches of the Author's Life in Paris in the Twenties - Ernest Hemingway

1964 - Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York - First American edition [A-3.64[H] on the copyright page. Price of $4.95 on jacket]
If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.’ – Hemingway to a friend, 1950.

A bright copy of Hemingway’s classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, filled with irreverent portraits of other expatriate luminaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein; tender memories of his first wife, Hadley; and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. It is a literary feast, brilliantly evoking the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the youthful spirit, unbridled creativity, and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomised.

Illustrated with eight black and white photographs.
