Description:
1920. Rare Gordon Bryant iconic portrait of American literary master F. Scott Fitzgerald, warmly signed by him, "Faithfully yours F. Scott Fitzgerald." This portrait was part of a study of Fitzgerald by Bryant which he later published in Shadowland Magazine in 1921. In fine condition. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 15.25 inches by 13.25 inches. Rare and desirable. Widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century, American novelist Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald published four novels and four collections of short stories during his lifetime including: This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, Tender Is the Night, and his masterpiece, The Great Gatsby. A member of the Lost Generation of the 1920s, Fitzgerald's novels depicted the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age and, though he achieved popular success, fame, and fortune in his lifetime, he received little critical acclaim until after his death.

Description:
New York: Random House, 1954. First edition of the first novel to win both Pulitzer and National Book Award. Octavo, original cloth. Advance review copy with a personal type-written letter from the publisher laid in addressed to Miss Belle Rosenbaum of the New York Herald Tribune. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Jacket design by Riki Levinson. The Fable won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 1955.

Faulkner himself fought in the war, and his descriptions of it "rise to magnificence," according to The New York Times, and include, in Malcolm Cowley's words, "some of the most powerful scenes he ever conceived."
