Fitzgerald worked for six years on his most accomplished and ambitious novel. Its complex structure and delayed publication met with little critical acclaim. Fitzgerald's star had already faded after the crash of 1929. As the decades passed however - and especially post Mitzner's 1948 book The Other Side of Paradise - Tender is the Night became more and more obviously a masterpiece. Also - there were few more beautiful books issued ever. The present example - totally unsophisticated, and truly lovely.

First edition, first printing; 8vo; publisher's green cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the pictorial dust jacket. Spine a little rolled, page stock lightly browned as usual, trivial mark to upper board but a particularly bright copy in the nicked and minimally rubbed dust jacket a little faded at the spine aqs usual but with fugitive red largely intact. A really nice copy.
