Highly collectible First Edition and First Printing “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald

In it’s 5th incarnation (including the lost 1926 silent version) will Baz Lurhman’s version of The Greay Gatsby finally succeed where the other 4 have failed?  Always in the top 5 of every list of the great English novels of the 20th century,  F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s classic story has yet to get a film treatment worthy of it’s gorgeous words and uniquely American tale.  Being a Lurhman movie we know it will be opulently staged and filmed.  But at it’s core the love story between Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan.  Critics that panned the 1974 version with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow in those roles almost unanimously criticized the lack of chemistry between the two.  So how will Leonardo Di Caprio and Casey Mulligan fare?

Before the Baz Lurhman film opens May 2013 do yourself a favor and read or reread this astonishing novel.

Now, for a sneak peek of the upcoming film, enjoy this video of the newest TV spot released by Warner Bros.

Dreams From My Father: A Story Of Race And Inheritance by Barack Obama – Exceedingly Rare, Signed First Edition

Dreams from my Father by Barak Obama available from Bren-Books.com

 This printing is now very elusive. Only a few signed copies are known, and are estimated to be worth up to $20,000.  As the first African-American President and on the cusp of his reelection the demand for this copy will only increase along with it’s value.

Description:  Published in 1995 by Times Books TRUE STATED FIRST EDITION with typical Random House # line to “2.” With a **SIGNED** card by PRESIDENT OBAMA (and a 100% guaranteed COA) pasted onto the half-title page. Though ex-library this copy was clearly little circulated and has very minor markings: some stamps at the top page edges and 2 small stamps on the inside rear board. There is some color bleed at the base of the spine end on the rear board as well. Otherwise in VG–/VG+ condition. The unclipped ($23) DJ has been continuously wrapped so there is basically no wear.   Bookseller Inventory # 6597

Synopsis:

Written just as President Obama began his political career, the son of a white American mother and a black African father, writes an elegant and compelling biography that powerfully articulates America’s racial battleground and tells of his search for his place in black America.

Quote:   Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison has called Barack Obama “a writer in my high esteem” and the book, “quite extraordinary.”
