About this Item

Original green cloth, gilt-stamped lettering on spine; 8vo; pp. [323]. Signed by the author on the FFEP, "Henry Miller / Chicago / 3/10/41." Spine tips and corners a little chipped and frayed; hinges cracked, but holding just fine. In custom cloth chemise and slipcase. First (unauthorized, pirated) American edition. Printed in Mexico and illegally distributed in the United States. 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
