A Near Fine copy with spine gilt only slightly dulled and in excellent condition internally.

"Tales of the Jazz Age features some of F. Scott Fitzgerald's best-loved short stories and novelettes, including The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Diamond as Big as the Ritz. Set in the Jazz Age, Fitzgerald's own term for the Roaring Twenties of newly confident, post-war America, this collection shows a comic genius at work, fashioning every genre from low farce to shrewd social insight, along with fantasy" (Macmillan).
