First Edition Gatsby Discovered
A Pennsylvania bookseller discovered a first editon of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby in a box of books that had been sitting in his store for over two months reports AP.
The volume has already garnered a $23,000 bid on ebay, before it was identified as a first edition. The first edition of the Jazz-age classic spells Jay Gatsby's name with a lowercase j on the dustjacket, a mistake which was corrected in later editions.
