About This Item

Northwood, Middlesex: Scorpion Press, 1959. Softcover. Near Fine. First English edition. Wrappers. Modest soiling on the front wrap, a little age-toning, still a nice, near fine copy. One of 500 numbered copies. Laid in is a prospectus for other Miller books, with a hand correction by Miller. The book is Inscribed by Miller to Sydney Omarr: "For Sydney Omarr with all good thoughts from Henry Miller. 2/21/59." Omarr was the "astrologer to the stars" and published a daily horoscope that appeared in more than 200 newspapers; his books of horoscopes sold over 50 million copies. He started out during the Second World War at the age of 17 when his predictions of horse races, boxing matches, and other sporting events were broadcast on Armed Forces Radio. Omarr and Miller became close friends, sharing the same tastes. Omarr liked to surround himself with beautiful women and was the personal adviser to Jayne Mansfield, Rita Hayworth, Kim Novak, and Mae West, among others. Omarr wrote a book on Miller, *Henry Miller: His World of Urania*, and Miller wrote the introduction to *Sydney Omarr's Astrological Guide to 1973* and the liner notes to the record album *Presenting Sydney Omarr*. A very nice association.
