About this Item: Paris: The Obelisk Press, 1937, 1937. Octavo. Signatures loosely inserted as issued into the original buff wrappers printed in red. Contents a little browned, wrappers tanned and chipped with some small loss at the overlapping top edge. Very good. Folding frontispiece by Abraham Rattner. First edition, first printing. One of 200 numbered copies signed by the author. With the author's signed presentation inscription on the first blank, "To Annie and Nicola with best wishes Henry Miller Paris 10/37". The identity of Annie and Nicola is something of a mystery, although Miller reports in Colossus of Maroussi of a meeting in Corfu with the local school master known universally as Nicola, but whether his partner was called Annie we do not know. From the library of John Martin with his small label inside the lower wrapper. Seller Inventory # 63313
