Item Description: The Obelisk Press, Paris, France, 1934. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. "Tropic of Cancer" by Henry Miller. TRUE first edition, first printing. Published by The Obelisk Press, Paris, France, 1934. This novel was originally published as a softcover in Paris, France and was banned in the U.S. for obscene content, thus the disclaimer on the front cover "Not to be imported into Great Britain or U. S. A". When The Grove Press released this novel and its sequel "Tropic of Capricorn" for publication, it started trials that tested the First Amendment of the Freedom of Speech. After testing the laws on pornography, the novels were granted non-obscene by the U. S. Supreme Court in 1964, thirty years after this printing. The book is in very good condition. Illustrated wrappers with French flaps with the original price present. Light wear and toning to the covers. Vertical cracks to the spine and at the joint of the rear cover. The spine is slightly lacking at the top. Some professional restoration and repair. Previous owner's humorous gift inscription on the front endpaper in pencil. The novel comes housed in a beautiful, custom quarter-leather clamshell box. An exquisite and extremely rare copy of this groundbreaking novel, considered an important masterpiece of 20th century literature.

Item Description: Grove Press [1961], New York, 1961. Hardcover. First American edition. 8vo. One of 100 specially bound, numbered copies signed by the author. Laid into this copy is a letter from the book's publisher, Barney Rosset, to James Pasta conveying the copy at Henry Miller's request. In his 1976 memoir, "Book Of Friends," Miller devotes an entire chapter to Jimmy Pasta, his boyhood friend. Some years later when Miller was floundering, Pasta got him a job with the Parks department, for which Miller sincerely thanked him: "It was a sort of turning point in my life." After the 1934 publication of "Tropic Of Cancer," Miller sent Pasta a copy of the first edition from Paris that was intercepted by the New York Post Office. Pasta retained the post office letter that advised him of the book's detainment. It was this incident that Miller recalled when he asked Barney Rosset to send Pasta this copy and the original letter was found in it after Pasta died. Also laid in is a pseudonymous pamphlet, "Letter To The Park Commissioner," that recounts Milller's tenure. All in all, a signal Henry Miller association copy. Just about fine with a touch of rubbing to the boards. signed. Bookseller Inventory # 23851

Item Description: New York Grove Press 1961, 1961. First authorized and first trade edition issued in America. With a long introduction by Karl Shapiro and a preface by Anais Nin. 8vo., publisher's original cloth backed boards in dustjacket. xxxiii, 318 pp. A handsome, clean and pleasing copy, some light evidence of age or shelving to the dustjacket, the book very fine. FIRST AUTHORIZED AND FIRST TRADE EDITION ISSUED IN AMERICA. Of the book, John Ciardi said, [it] "is a substantial work of art. The violence of Miller's attack on orthodoxy and falseness is indispensable to his human vision of things. In [the book] the test is ferocity, a ferocious and yet naive sincerity that castigates all sham. It cannot fail to be moral finally, because the ferocity is radically moral. And because the author is an artist--a very good one, as the continued 'underground life' of the book attests." Ours is a very nice copy of this classic. Bookseller Inventory # 25851

Item Description: Obelisk Press, Paris, 1935. Soft cover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. As a testament to the times, the original owner glued a plain brown paper cover to the original. It seems later he added the title by hand. . This is the first English reprint and was issued in September of 1935. Regrettably it has, shall we say, been less than lovingly cared for. As this book was banned in the US until 1965 covers had to be removed and brown paper was pasted to the free front and rear page. The original owner penned the Author's name and Title on this makeshift cover. The book was sold uncut and in the original owners exuberance the cutting was done roughly, sometimes leaving tear outs dangerously close to the text. The spine is badly creased at pg 164/165. One page 161/162 is loose and the left 1/2 of the last 4 lines along with the page # is missing. Three pages; 17/18, 213/214 and 215/216; were folded down to mark the readers place. One page; 229/230; is ripped front edge to spine with a small tear out measuring approximately 1/2" x 3/4". A word or two is lost from each of the last three lines of that leaf. The book was poorly shelved at some point as the cover and to page 17 were at some point folded back on themselves so there is a crease 1" from the edge of the front cover. With all of that being said however this book is not one you would be considering as a beach read or to scribble notes in while preparing for your English 101 final exam. Being one of a printing of only 500, and being a book that was actively suppressed in its day it is a significant piece of literary history.We are the second owner of this volume. The condition is GOOD with some age tanning to the interior but no marks nor mars of any kind. Preface by Anais Nin We ship no later than the first business day following confirmation of your order.
