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.

Ink signature, “F. Scott Fitzgerald,” on an off-white 6 x 1.5 slip clipped from the closing of a document dated December 29, 1938. Double-matted and framed with a portrait of Fitzgerald looking through a book to an overall size of 12.5 x 17.5. In fine condition. A very nice example from a key period in his career, as he was situated in Hollywood working on scripts for MGM—including contributing to Gone With the Wind—and working on his final novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon (published posthumously as The Last Tycoon).
