Item Description: Not Published, 1963. Unbound. Book Condition: Very Good. Original 1963 Signed Contract Terminating the Agreement for the Film Rights for Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer. 1-Page Typed Document Letter. SIGNED at conclusion in full by Henry Miller in blue ink, as called for. Also signed in full by Edward Blau in black ink under "Rellim Productions" (Rellim is Miller in reverse). Dated December 31, 1963, with Henry Miller's home address typed at top (444 Ocampo Drive, Pacific Palisades, California), the one-page agreement reads, in full: "Dear Mr. Miller: You and we have entered into that certain employment agreement (herein called 'the Agreement') with respect to your services as a technical consultant and production executive in connection with the motion picture photoplay presently entitled 'Tropic of Cancer', and as a development executive. Certain litigation has caused an interruption in the development and production of 'Tropic of Cancer'. For a time it appeared that the litigation would be settled quickly and that development and production could then be resumed. However, it now appears that the litigation may continue for an extended period, and development and production of the picture must be dis-continued indefinitely. Accordingly, you and we have mutually agreed to terminate the Agreement effective today. Such termination shall not affect our ownership of the results and proceeds of your services prior hereto and our other rights with respect thereto as provided in the Agreement. Please confirm your understanding by signing in the place provided therefor below. Very truly yours, Rellim Productions, Inc. By [& signed Edward Blau]. Agreed to: Henry Miller [& signed Henry Miller]". This important period of Miller's life & the drama surrounding both the book & film versions of Tropic of Cancer & their censorship has been much documented. From Jay Martin's 'Always Merry & Bright' (p.471): "In 1962, Joseph E. Levine purchased the film rights to Tropic of Cancer & announced that he planned to make a 2-million dollar film from the book & that Henry Miller himself would be a consultant on the production. For the first few months the production went along smoothly; then one disaster after another, quite apart from any question of censorship, started to haunt the film. As part owner of the film rights Miller himself was entangled in these litigations for 4 years". After several convoluted sagas the film would finally be released in 1970. Slight handling wear, two small file holes punched into top edge, otherwise a nice clean copy. IMPORTANT, UNIQUE & RARE. Size: 28 x 21.5cm. Signed. Bookseller Inventory # 002587

Item Description: Obelisk Press, Paris, 1935. Stiff Card Wrappers. Book Condition: Very Good Plus. Dust Jacket Condition: Good Minus. Second Edition. Second edition,"Reprinted September 1935" on verso of half-title page, in an edition of 500 copies of the author's ground-breaking first published book. This edition switched from a printed to a plain grey stiff wrapper with removeable dustjacket due to the first printing being confiscated by British & U.S. custom authorities. Disposing of the dustjacket (stating title & author) left one with an anonymous looking book to sail through Customs. Discarding this dustjack en masse renders this dustjacket extremely scarce. This copy is partially unopened (pages 185 to 322 are unopened). Iron grey wrappers are tight, clean with a slight verticle crease down length of spine. Contents tight, clean without names nor marks. Pale green dustjacket designed by Maurice Kahan bears illustratration of a naked woman being lifted by a giant crab. Unclipped price states 50 Frs. The dustjacket's spine is heavily sunned with a 2" piece off top taking off 6 of the title letters. Dustjacket is chipped, with darkening at creases & top edge, with slight foxing. This scarce jacket is 95% complete with flaps in good condition. Professional archival conservation should improve the jacket's appearance, now in mylar. Shifreen & Jackson A9b. On front of jacket Ezra Pound's view is printed "At last an unprintable book that is fit to read." Laid into this book on a plain cream-colored sheet, the author has inscribed " For my good old friend - ein lieber Kerl - Fred Kann. Tue le bon Dieu le benisse ! Henry Miller , Big Sur, 1/24/55. Notre ami Perles ("Alf") est chez nous a present. Schone Grusse !" Artist Fred Kann was friend and benefactor to Henry Miller when he was down & out in Paris in the early1930's before his publication of his first book, Tropic of Cancer. Writer Alfred Perles also met Miller in his early Paris days and remained a very close friend throughout their lives. Miller fashioned the Tropic character "Carl" after Perles. Photo scans available. Please check on this book's availability before ordering. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Inscribed and Signed By the Author. Consignment. Bookseller Inventory # 2498

A clipped note of unknown origin tipped to the front pastedown explains: "This is a copy of the first American edition of 'Tropic of Cancer' as pirated from the earlier French editions. The print run was ordered by Ben Abramson of the Argus Bookstore, Chicago, and was carried out by Nat. Roth of the Aries Press (formerly Falcon Press) of Chicago. 'New York / Medusa" is ficticious. This copy was the personal property of Mr. Roth and, since chapter heads are lacking, is doubtless a printer's proof.". Bookseller Inventory # D11302

Item Description: The Obelisk Press, Paris, 1939. Softcover. Fifth printing. Printed self-wrappers. Pages browned, a modest tear on the front wrap and first leaf, a nice and pleasing, very good copy with no restoration. Miller's best known work, an acknowledged classic detailing with then-unprecedented sexual candor his expatriate experience in Paris. It was banned for decades in the United States. The first edition consisted of 1000 copies, the next four printings were 500 copies each, so this is one of the first 3000 copies. Because of the fragile binding, early editions are usually found in poor condition. Very scarce. See this book in 3D on our site. Bookseller Inventory # 342980

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
