Black Spring
The Obelisk Press, Paris 1936 - Black Spring was Miller's second published novel, following Tropic of Cancer and preceding Tropic of Capricorn. It's an autobiography about Brooklyn (circa 1915 or so) and Paris in the Thirties. It is also a very great book, in a way that the two Tropics never quite are. No one, including Thomas Wolfe, has ever described Brooklyn with the gusto Miller lavishes upon every storefront and shifty citizen. Black Spring's first 147 pages are probably the best Miller ever wrote, with little gratuitous sex but enough adrenalin for a horserace. First issue of this title published June 1936, in very good condition with faint stains to covers, particularly to the spine, old owner signature on ffep and a few pages roughly opened. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
