About this Item

Edition limited to 800 copies, this copy no. 74 signed by Miller and Schatz (but Shifreen & Jackson suggest that the first issue was in fact less than 200 -- see below); 4to, pp. [86]; illustrated throughout in color and the text reproducing Miller's original manuscript; original blue silk-screened cloth lightly rubbed at spine ends, lettered in black on spine, and with a red felt patch glued to front board, as issued; publisher's matching blue cloth slipcase (with a few dings and rub marks); a very good copy, or better. "This book is entirely a serigraph or silk screen production . Sixteen months were required to bring it forth. With the exception of the text, which is originally from Henry Miller's Black Spring . this book is the creation of Bezalel Schatz, a Palestinian artist." Shifreen & Jackson, A60a: "The copyright page notes that this edition was limited to 800 copies, however, this is in error. 800 sets of the sheets were printed in 1947 along with the silk screen blue cloth used for the binding. Somewhat less than 200 copies were bound, enclosed in slipcases and put on sale in April 1947, and with the remaining sheets stored in Miller's closet. In 1971 and 1977, additional binding of the first edition sheets would occur (see Shifreen & Jackson A60b and A60c). Numbered copies, with all of the First Edition points are known to exist at least through copy no. 164 . Approximately 400 of the original 600 sets stored in Miller's closet were destroyed by 'worms' [also described by Miller as 'rats and fungus'].". Bookseller Inventory # 28398
