TEN YEARS OF PRINCETON '17: A Record of the Class of 1917 of Princeton University for the Decade 1917-1927

Princeton, New Jersey: Class of 1917, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Though he never graduated, the most famous member of Princeton's Class of 1917 was writer F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940). This record includes several references to Fitzgerald and his service in the First World War, as well as the first publication in book form of "Princeton" (1927), an article which originally appeared in an issue of College Humor and was later anthologized in Afternoon of an Author (1957). This copy belonged to another member of the Class of 1917, James E. Kimber, who affixed related clippings to the prefatory and concluding leaves. His signature and Berkeley, California address appear on the front flyleaf. Quarto. Original black cloth-covered boards over an orange cloth spine, with a pictorial label inset on the front and black titles along the spine. Light soiling along the edges. The boards are rather shelfworn, with a few faint stains. Bruccoli B12. Good. Item #66171
