Notes

First edition, first printing in the exceptionally scarce first issue jacket, with the over-price sticker of 1.75 to the spine panel (Bruccoli notes that "priority is undetermined" between his and jackets without the price).
With this novel Fitzgerald more or less invented the roaring Twenties, or at least positioned Zelda and himself at its very core. It was an instant success, launching Fitzgerald's career. By the end of the next year the novel had been reprinted 12 times and sold nearly 50,000 copies.
