MILLER, Henry.
Tropic of Capricorn.
Paris: The Obelisk Press, 1939. Paris: The Obelisk Press,, 1939. Octavo. Original white and red wrappers, titles printed in black to spine and front cover, top edge rough-trimmed, others untrimmed. An excellent copy, bright and intact, only a little minor rubbing to extremities. First edition, first issue, with "60 frs" to the spine and the yellow errata slip tipped-in as issued. This is the prequel to Miller's first published novel, The Tropic Of Cancer. It was "originally scheduled for publication in February but delayed for three months, as a result of which few copies were sold before the beginning of the war, the death of Kahane, and the shutting down of the Obelisk Press. On these copies the original printed price on the spine and both flaps has not been inked out" (Pearson). Pearson A60.
Bookseller: Peter Harrington [United Kingdom]
