Item Description: (Lecram Servant) [1935], (Paris), 1935. Softcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. A small, early volume by Miller, self-published with money he earned from Tropic of Cancer, according to the bibliography. Shifreen & Jackson A10a.

Roughly 15 pages of text by Miller, intent on soliciting 25 francs a week to send Alfred Perles to Ibiza to finish a novel. Slight surface soiling; very near fine in stapled wrappers. Approximately 3-3/4" x 5". Because of its size and fragility, one of Miller's scarcest "A" items. Bookseller Inventory # 017150

Item Description: Loujon Press, New Orleans, 1966. Limited First Edition. Limited First Edition. [Green Oasis Edition]. Miller, Henry. Order and Chaos Chez Hans Reichel: A Loujon Press - of New Orleans - Limited First Edition, [1966]. S&J A157f. Loujon is one of the greatest counter-culture presses of the second half of the 20th century. The very scarce Green Oasis Limited Issue, one of only 11 copies. With dust jacket and cork-lined slipcase. Introduction by Lawrence Durrell. Signed by Miller at the back and lettered "N." The letters used to designate the 11 copies are the 11 letters in Miller's name. Thus there were two Ls and two Es, but only one N. This copy additionally inscribed to the collector by co-editor/co-publisher Jon Edgar Webb on what may be an advertising broadside. However, the sheet is titled "Order & Chaos Chez Hans Reichel by Henry Miller . . . The Inscription." Thus it may be a sheet developed specifically to hold inscriptions. It's the same size as the leaves in the book and in this copy it's comfortably laid in. Webb's signature and Miller's are each dated 1967. S&J believe this edition was issued at the same time as the ones listed before it in their bibliography (a through e). It had a tiny press-run compared to those of A157a, b, and c. Covers of light green cloth, with dark green leather back-strip. Gilt lettering to the spine. The front panel of the dust jacket features a Reichel painting ("L'homme de la lune"), which entails a large circle that on the verso of the sheet becomes a circle of bright orange. The first half dozen pages are printed in red ink on papers of various colors. Photo portrait of Miller bound in. Fine copy in jacket and slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 27136

Item Description: Viking, NY, 1946. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. The first American edition of this novel by Giono, a writer whom Miller had come to admire while in France and whom he had long worked to get published in the U.S. Inscribed by Miller to his muse and former wife, June: "For June/ from/ Henry, Lepska & Val/ Xmas 1947." Lepska was Janina Martha Lepska Miller, Henry's third wife, and Val was their two year-old daughter. Henry and June had not been in regular touch for several years at this point, but she had recently contacted him and was destitute. He arranged for a friend to send her some money (he was still broke in the U.S.; his books had sold well in France and he had a substantial amount of money there but no way, under postwar regulations, to get it out of the country). His renewed contact with June, however, sparked his getting back to work on the Rosy Crucifixion, which he saw as his masterpiece-to-be, but which had been languishing. The part he was about to embark on -- dealing with his time with June and Jean Kronski -- was full of painful memories that Miller would have to relive in order to write it. The contact with June -- with whom he maintained contact thereafter -- allowed him to revisit that time and those experiences, and to finally bring to fruition the long-contemplated work. The cloth is heavily and unevenly faded; corners bumped; a very good copy, lacking the dust jacket. An excellent association copy, representing numerous strands of Miller's life over the prior two decades. Bookseller Inventory # 012914

Item Description: France-Edition, Paris, 1924. Softcover. Book Condition: Fair. First Edition. Inscribed by Miller to Emil Schnelluck, one of his oldest friends and one of only a handful who stayed close to Miller through the enormous changes in his life after he met June Mansfield and left his previous existence behind in almost every respect. Schnelluck had been to Europe long before Miller had, and he used to recount to Miller his memories of his visits there, which Miller eagerly soaked up. Now Miller, in Paris for the second time in October, 1930, relays this book to his friend, with a recommendation that it is "fairly easy to read and quite entertaining. Try it!" He also recounts seeing "a peach of a Huysmans yesterday on Blvd Raspail called 'Croquis de Paris.' So much to buy -- so much -- if one only had the dough!" A wonderful inscription to one of his best friends, focused on Paris and books, not to mention poverty -- the important early themes of Miller's literary life. Wrappers are missing and the inscription is on the half-title which is the first page here. Page detached from the rest of the text; extremely brittle, acidifying pages. The condition is fair, and with a risk of deterioration. Miller's underlinings and comments in the text. An excellent personal association. Bookseller Inventory # 012912

Item Description: Carrefour, (Puerto Rico), 1939. Softcover. Book Condition: Fine. First Edition. Letters between Michael Fraenkel and Henry Miller. This is the trade edition: one of 475 copies. A fine copy in wrappers. A beautiful copy of this book published by one of the most important avant garde presses of the 20th century, which was founded by Fraenkel and American poet Walter Lowenfels, who introduced Fraenkel to Miller. Miller, Fraenkel and Lowenfels formed what has come to be known as the "Triumvirate of Death," because so much of their writing -- and that published by Carrefour -- focused on the theme of the spiritual death of Western Man.
