About this Item: Obelisk Press,, Paris:, 1934. Condition: Near Fine. First edition. One of only 1,000 copies printed. Miller's autobiographical novel -- banned in the U.S. and UK for decades after its publication -- has been described as "notorious for its candid sexuality" and responsible for the "free speech that we now take for granted in literature." The 1961 U.S. publication by Grove Press led to obscenity trials that tested American laws on pornography before it was finally declared "non-obscene" in 1964. Written between 1930 and 1934 during his "nomadic life" in Paris, Miller's TROPIC OF CANCER was titled as such because, by his own account, ". . . to me cancer symbolizes the disease of civilization, the endpoint of the wrong path, the necessity to change course radically, to start completely over from scratch." On many best-of lists, including Time Magazine's 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005 and The Modern Library's list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century, where it is ranked 50th. A near fine copy with light soiling and minute fraying to top of spine but remarkably with the yapped (over-hanging) covers barely frayed at all. Very scarce in this nice condition. Shifreen & Jackson A9a. Seller Inventory # 53812

About this Item: Obelisk Press, 1934. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Cavernously deep existential insights hidden throughout a wreckage of vulgarity that would make drunken sailors squeamish.*****Original wrappers with front hinge split professionally closed. Slight age toning to covers and spine, small area of rubbing to upper left cover else near fine. Housed in custom case.***Henry Miller, as the story goes, arrived in 1930 Paris with little money, unfinished manuscripts, and a copy of Whitman’s Leaves of Grass (another person that pushed the boundaries of acceptability in his time). Henry had essentially rage quit life in the U.S to embark upon the novel that would make him infamous. Thanks to the great Anais Nin - using both her editing skills and money borrowed from her psychoanalyst, lover, and friend of Freud, Dr. Otto Rank - he got 1000 copies of Tropic published in 1934. Banned in the U.S and U.K, it became an underground sensation to the point that people were essentially drug mule-ing copies back home. With people stuffing copies into their underwear and tearing the wrappers apart to hide it from the authorities, it’s a book that isn’t easy to find in good condition.********For even better pricing, visit our website*****.

About this Item: Medusa [Imprenta de Mexico], New York, 1940. First American Edition. 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.". Seller Inventory # D11302

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. Seller Inventory # 342980

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # 25851
