Though his brilliance garnered him little financial success in his own lifetime, F. Scott Fitzgerald went on to be hailed as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. His third novel The Great Gatsby has been widely acclaimed as one of the Great American Novels, a perennial favorite often cited as a cautionary tale of the American Dream breaking bad.

“…a first edition of Gatsby in the original jacket, with those eyes and lips suspended in a deep blue sky, is worth exponentially more, a quick leap from four figures to six.”

— Lapham’s Quarterly
