Nin Anais
New York E. P. Dutton & Company 1947. First Edition. Inscribed by Nin on the front fly to Hollywood screenwriter Sidney Carroll, (The Hustler). "For Sidney Carroll Sincerely Anais Nin". With Nin's handwritten return name and address on the wrapping paper used to post the book to Carroll, mounted on the front endpaper along with the $2 U.S. postal stamp required to send the book. 8vo, publisher's original black cloth gilt lettered on the spine, and in the original dustjacket. 182pp. A fine copy in a well preserved and complete dustjacket showing only very light wear. The presentation inscription is very fresh and bright and is in the green ink which matches that on the wrapping paper used to send the book. INSCRIBED BY NIN TO SCREENWRITER SIDNEY CARROLL, two-time Academy Award nominee and winner of multiple Emmy Awards. The address from which the book was sent is the apartment in San Francisco Ms. Nin shared with actor Rupert Pole, who was one of her two simultaneous husbands (she had one on each coast), and who would later be her literary executor. Children of the Albatross is considered by critics to be one of Anaïs Nin's most beautifully written books; it is also a ground breaker in that it eloquently addresses androgyny and homosexuality, which few literary works dared to do in 1940s America. We are introduced to three of Nin's most significant characters: Djuna, Lillian, and Sabina, all of whom represent different aspects of Nin's character. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Buddenbrooks, Inc. [Newburyport, MA, U.S.A.]
