BEAUTIFUL COPY IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS
Tropic of Capricorn
whole human race is rocking with laughter, laughing so hard it hurts, I
mean, everybody then has his foot on the path.”
EDITION, FIRST ISSUE in original wrappers; one of only 1000 copies
continues the autobiographical exploration of the self Miller began in
Tropic of Cancer, recounting, in his characteristically brutal
and forthright style, the emergence of the artist from his early days of
struggle in New York. Banned in many countries on grounds of obscenity,
copies of Tropic of Capricorn were smuggled into the United
States, contributing to the underground growth of his reputation in his
Obelisk Press, 1939. Octavo, original wrappers; custom half-leather box.
First issue, with 60 FR price and errata slip. Only a hint of
edgewear including a very small chip to top of rear panel. A beautiful
copy, most rare in this condition. $3500.
