PROKOSCH, Frederic
Among the Caves
(Frederic Prokosch), Lisboa, 1941. First edition. Decorated marbled wrappers with white printed label. 24mo. Fine. Out of a total edition of 22 copies, this is copy number 4, Signed by the author, and inscribed by him benath his signature. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. Rare. Of the 22 copies *OCLC* locates eight copies in institutions. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
