The Great Gatsby

New York: Scribner’s, 1925. First Edition; first printing. Aside from a tiny stain on the endpapers from a label or small bookplate, and very slight cocking, a fine copy in a first printing dust jacket with considerable restoration. Most significantly, about 30% of the spine is in facsimile, skillfully matched to the original. This jacket was recently restored, at least in part to undo a heavy-handed restoration from the distant past. Included with this copy is an extensive report from the conservationist detailing the work, materials and methods used. In a custom clamshell box.
