TO PAINT IS TO LOVE AGAIN
Alhambra, CA Cambria Books (1960) Original beige cloth boards decorated in blue. Illustrated with 14 reproductions of watercolors by Miller. Shifreen & Jackson A123a: Copy #9 of only 50 of the Special Edition. Rather than being signed on the limitation page, this copy bears a SIGNED INSCRIPTION by the author on the half-title page to his third wife: "For/Lepska/from/Henry." In 1944, a decade after his divorce from his second wife, June Mansfield, and his affair with Anais Nin, Miller married a Polish immigrant and graduate student, Janina Martha Lepska. Despite having two of his three children with Lepska, as she was known, Miller's marriage collapsed in 1951 over disagreements about child rearing and they were divorced the following year. The front free endpaper, tellingly, contains a 1964 SIGNED INSCRIPTION by Lepska "To Miss McBride/with admiration and gratitude." Fine in a Near Fine dustwrapper with minor rubbing and edgewear
