The original price is intact. With an Introduction by the editor, Durrell. A nice copy. ".It is most fitting that this anthology of the 'best' of Henry Miller should have been assembled by one of the first of Miller's contemporaries to recognize his genius, the eminent British writer Lawrence Durrell. Drawing material from a dozen different books, Durrell has traced the main line and principal themes of the 'single, endless autobiography' which is Henry Miller's life work. Included are stories, 'portraits' of persons and places, philosophical essays, and aphorisms. For each selection Miller himself has prepared a brief commentary which fits the piece into its place in his life story. This framework is supplemented by a chronology from Miller's birth in 1891 to the spring of 1959, a bibliography, and, as an appendix, an open letter to the Supreme Court of Norway written in protest of the ban on 'Sexus,' a part of which appears in this volume."
