Tropic of Capricorn. Henry MILLER.

Tropic of Capricorn

Paris: The Obelisk Press, 1939. First Edition. The third volume in Miller's renowned Obelisk Trilogy, which included Tropic of Cancer (1934) and Black Spring (1936). Like all of Miller's collaborations with Jack Kahane's Obelisk Press, this is a fragile book, rarely found in good condition; the present example shows ample evidence of use, but is still a presentable and complete copy. Octavo. Original publisher's wrappers printed in red and black; 367pp. Bookplate signed by Henry Miller laid in at front endpaper. Neat ownership signature to front endpaper ("S. Lewis Rand / Paris / 1945").Price elided on front flap, with new price stamped on spine (as on most copies); moderate creasing, wear and toning to wrapper edges and spine; small (ca 1/2") triangular chip to base of rear cover; just Very Good. In custom cloth slipcase.

Price: $1,250.00
