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

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

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.

Item Description: Medvsa, NY, 1940. Softcover. First Edition. A piracy, and the first American edition, this being the variant in plain magenta wrappers. There were 1000 copies printed of the Medvsa edition of Tropic of Cancer (for which its publisher, Jacob Brussel, went to prison for publishing pornography); in addition, there were between 200 and 500 extra copies which went to New York erotica publisher Samuel Roth and were sold privately by him. The bibliography identified seven binding variants of these overrun copies (although there were probably more). Because they were not part of the contractual agreement between Brussel and Miller, and Miller almost surely received no royalties for them, they are legitimately considered piracies. Wrappers sunned, particularly on the spine, with the title written on the cover and the spine. A near fine copy of a fragile, early variant of one of the literary high spots of the modern era, and its first appearance in the U.S.; it was not published here legally until more than twenty years later.
