New York: Scribner's Magazine. Bound 6-month volume containing January - June, 1934 (Volume 95). Grey-blue linen cloth binding with a dark blue coated spine with silver gilt title, and decorative blue & yellow kozo hand-made paper endpapers. Kozo endpapers are meant to remind the reader of the original 'Mediterranean' feel of the original dust jacket artwork. Bound volume contains original advertisements, but lacks covers. This volume was custom rebound by Campbell Logan Bindery in Minneapolis, MN. This custom bound 6-month volume contains the first publishing of Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night. The novel was serialized in four parts by Scribner's Magazine within January - April, 1934 and later published in book form in April of that year. His fourth and final completed novel, Tender was Fitzgerald's darkest, and most auto-biographical - paralleling his life with Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald. Illustrations by Edward Shenton. Serialized magazine publications - such as this one - are generally thought of as 'true first editions' because they are printed and released before the final first book edition is available. Overall, binding in fine condition - professionally rebound in November, 2013, utilizing the finest materials by skilled practitioners. Interior contents (magazine) is in good condition with no underlining, writing or damaged pages. Although a previous library bound book that contains some usual internal library markings (Univ of Rochester Library stamp) found on title page and on front, fore and bottom edge, they have been kept to a minimum.
