Title: The Beautiful and Damned
Description: New York, Charles Scribner, 1922. First Edition, first state. Handsomely bound in finely-woven green cloth stamped brightly in gold on the spine. First state without the Scribner's Seal on the copyright page. With a discrete inscription in initials dated '23 in ink on the front endpaper. Very clean and tight throughout with only a touch of rubbing to the bottom corners. A collectible copy. The Beautiful and Damned, first published by Scribner's in 1922, is F. Scott Fitzgerald's second novel. It portrays the Eastern elite during the Jazz Age, exploring New York café society. As in Fitzgerald's other novels, the characters are complex, especially with respect to marriage and intimacy. The book is believed to be largely based on Fitzgerald's relationship with Zelda Fitzgerald. The novel tells the story of Anthony Patch, a 1910s socialite and presumptive heir to a tycoon's fortune, his relationship with his wife, Gloria, his service in the army, and his alcoholism.
