First Edition; first printing; second state (with canceled leaves correcting misprints); one page torn; a very good copy in dust jacket; in a custom half-morocco clamshell box. Presentation copy; inscribed by the author, “We are now at the end of the sequence - please accept this gift with admiration from the giver, of you, as a man and as an artist. F. Scott Fitzgerald to Edward Everett Horton. Encino 1939.” Fitzgerald rented the guest house on the Encino estate (”Belly Acres”) of character actor Horton, who kept an eye on the failing, often inebriated author until he moved over the hills to be near Sheilah Graham, in whose apartment he died the following year.
