First Edition. This was the office file copy of F. Scott FitzgeraldÕs agent, Harold Ober Associates, with their agency stamp on the front free endpaper. With some minor pencil notations at the Table of Contents. A collection of short stories selected by Alan and Jennifer Ross. Very good copy with a bit of edge wear and some very faint darkening and minor tearing to the cloth at the top of spine in a very good dust jacket with some darkening to the spine and a couple of shallow chips and tiny tears. Harold Ober (1881 - 1951) was one of AmericaÕs most respected and successful literary agents. He represented such distinguished authors as William Faulkner, and is perhaps best known for both his professional and personal association with F. Scott Fitzgerald. OberÕs relationship with Fitzgerald was particularly close and supportive, and like any complex alliance, it suffered through occasional bouts of conflict and contention. Over the years Ober played an integral role in the cultivation of FitzgeraldÕs career, offering professional counsel and financial assistance, often giving him advances against unsold stories. In turn, Fitzgerald dedicated his book, Taps At Reveille, to Ober. After FitzgeraldÕs wife Zelda was institutionalized, Harold and Anne Ober stepped in as virtual foster parents to the FitzgeraldÕs young daughter, Scottie. When Fitzgerald died suddenly in Hollywood, CA while working on The Last Tycoon, his companion Sheilah GrahamÕs first call was to Ober, with whom Scottie was staying, informing him of the sad news. Ober then called Zelda Fitzgerald in Montgomery, AL. The Obers continued their affection and support of Scottie, including lending her money so that she could complete her education at Vassar. All in all, Fitzgerald and Ober were clearly a dynamic literary force, and without question helped to bring modern American literature forward with intelligence, commitment, and style.
