Here's an interesting item in this weekend's New York Times Book Review about classics publishing. Note the mention of Gatsby sales on Page 2: Although sales of the original ML edition apparently didn't top 5,000 copies in the 1930s (per Satterfield), the novel sold a half-million copies for Simon & Schuster in 2002. Wow.
