1 Miller, Henry The Cosmological Eye
Norfolk, Connecticut New Directions 1939 First Edition Buckram 
In Near Fine condition. Bound in full beige buckram. The spine is stamped in brown; the front panel of this first-state binding has the inset label of 'the cosmological eye.' Octavo. [ix] + 363pps. No dustjacket. There is a faint touch of sunning to the spine and browning to either pastedown (as is common, due to the binder's glue). Otherwise clean, bright, square, and soundly bound. All tips are sharp. No previous ownership markings. A very nice copy of the author's first U. S. publication. ".This collection contains a number of Henry Miller's most important shorter prose writings. They are taken from the Paris books 'Black Spring' (1936) and 'Max and the White Phagocytes' (1938) and were for the most part, written at about the same time as 'Tropic of Capricorn' -- the period of Miller's and Durrell's life in the famous Villa Seurat in Paris." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.

2 Miller, Henry (Edited By Durrell, Lawrence) The Henry Miller Reader
New York New Directions 1959 First Edition Cloth 
Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full red cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. [xvi] + 397pps. There is slight creasing to the upper corners of fifteen pages near the center of the book, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has touches of rubbing, sunfading at the edges of the front panel, a 1" closed tear at the top of the front panel, and very light wear at the extremities. 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." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
