F. Scott Fitzgerald Vintage ink signature

31 Jan

Vintage ink signature, “Yrs. in Xt., F. Scott Fitzgerald,” on an off-white 4 x 3.25 slip affixed to a 6.75 x 3.75 album page. In very good condition, with scattered toning and soiling, some slight rippling due to adhesive, and a couple spots of adhesive remnants to surface. The sentiment, short for ‘Yours in Christ,’ is unusual coming from the typically secular Fitzgerald—however, it was a closing often used by H. L. Mencken and others in a mocking fashion. Nevertheless, Fitzgerald was the first author of Catholic descent to achieve canonical success in America, making this an interesting associative piece. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
