Paris: The Obelisk Press, 1939. First Edition. Miller's semi-autobiographical follow-up to his 1934 novel Tropic of Cancer. Shifreen & Jackson A21b. Item #2725
Second issue, with the 60FRS price stamped over in black on spine, but differing from Shifreen & Jackson's description in that there is no 175.00 printed price on the rear wrapper. Octavo (19cm); illustrated wrappers printed in red and black; 367,pp; publisher's errata slip bound in before title page. Mild sunning to spine, with a few vertical creases to same; light wear to extremities, with a few tiny edge tears and some dustiness to rear wrapper; price in Francs blacked out by publisher on both flaps, with *78.00 rubber-stamped to lower left corner of terminal leaf; internally quite fresh; Very Good+, still a quite attractive copy of a book which is nearly always found heavily-worn.
