Signed book: This Side of Paradise. Later printing. NY: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1931. Hardcover, 5.5 x 7.5, 305 pages. Signed and inscribed on the first free end page in fountain pen to a fellow screenwriter, "For Harold Goldman, this tale of life in the movie colony modern—fast-moving—epic—delightful reading of course, ('Ranks with Moliere,' Dorothy Dix), from F. Scott ('Fade-Out') Fitzgerald, 1937." The rear pastedown bears an affixed label from the Stanley Rose Bookshop, an important gathering place for the era's Hollywood literati, located on Vine Street off Hollywood Boulevard. Autographic condition: fine, with faint toning to the signed page. Book condition: VG/None, with light scattered scuffing to exterior and mild foxing to upper textblock edge. Though he reportedly found movie work degrading, Fitzgerald entered a lucrative screenwriting contract with MGM in 1937. Harold Goldman was a screenwriter at MGM during the late 1930s, and he worked with Fitzgerald on the 1938 film A Yank at Oxford, starring Robert Taylor and Vivien Leigh. An exceptionally desirable presentation copy of Fitzgerald's iconic debut novel.
