Some damage to folders, scattered staining or foxing, some issues with separations or tears along central fold. Paris/Washington, D.C. (Black Sun Press) 1945-1948. The Black Sun Press was an English-language press founded by American expats Harry and Caresse Crosby, and was known for publishing the early works of many modernist writers who would later enjoy great fame, including D.H. Lawrence, Archibald MacLeish, Henry Miller, Anaïs Nin, Charles Bukowski, and Ernest Hemingway. It lasted longer than the several other expatriate presses founded in Paris during the 1920s. Portfolio was published years after Harry's suicide, stemming from Caresse's desire to continue her work with young and avant-garde writers and artists. The second issue was published in Paris less than 7 months after the end of World War II and featured primarily French writers and artists, and the fourth and sixth issues were focused on Italian and Greek artists and writers, respectively.
