About this Item

Third Edition. Hardcover. On the limitation page in the back of the book - the "colophon" page, this is identified as a "presentation copy" consisting of 150 copies, this one being number 25. In Shifreen & Jackson: HENRY MILLER: A Bibliography of Primary Sources, pp. 412-423, this edition of INSOMNIA is described in great detail under the heading A175j, and is called the Third Edition of this title. The text consists of 32 pages, all in a facsimile of Henry Miller's handwriting, with 12 color prints and 4 photographs. Inside the book is an original signed lithograph by Miller on Japanese paper, this being copy #85 of 150. Although the book itself is not signed - even though most of it is in Miller's facsimile handwriting, the lithograph itself is indeed signed, and laid into the front of the book. The first 100 copies of this edition were in English, while the remaining 50 were in French. The bibliographer says he had not seen any copies of the French issue. The book is bound in full black Morocco leather, 4to size (12"x9") and stamped in gold. The book is very fine, as is the print itself inside the book. In a fine example of a blue cloth-covered slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 27549
