F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby
Originally shared by Raptis Rare Books
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby was first published on this day in 1925. The First Edition of The Great Gatsby in the original dust jacket is one of the most highly sought after books in the world of rare book collecting.
The jacket is so rare because of a printer’s error on the back cover – a lowercase „j” in „jay Gatsby” – which had to be hand corrected and likely stopped the presses to be reset. The remaining had-corrected jackets are scarce.
