The World of Sex (w/author's corrections)

MILLER, Henry

Chicago: J.H.N. (John Henry Nash), 1940. This is the scarce limited edition of the first edition of this early work by Miller, limited to 250 copies in the first edition. The thing that makes this book so interesting is that besides being inscribed and signed by Miller to the NYC literary agent, Henry Volkening, there is a whole page of Errata notes (10 total) in the author's neat hand. It is signed and dated 11/16/41. My thought is that Volkening was a go-between to the editor for the later NYC printing of the book -- and this is Miller's notes to him prior to that publication. A one-of-a-kind Miller signed collectable. . Inscribed and Signed By Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/VG++.

Chicago: Printed by J. H. N. for Friends of Henry Miller, 1940. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Signed. First edition, limited. Shifreen & Jackson's third binding variant in publisher's blue cloth with gold title label lettered in black, raspberry-pink end papers. Though the limitation states only 250 copies printed, it is believed that the actual number of copies printed far exceeds that amount, perhaps totaling 750-1,000. Signed by Henry Miller on the first blank page, though not as called for. Very Good with rubbing to gilt title block on front cover, spotting to cloth at edges. Shifreen & Jackson A25d.

The WORLD Of SEX

Miller, Henry [1891 - 1980]

[Chicago]: Printed by the Friends of J. H. N. for Friends of Henry Miller [Ben Abramson], 1941. 1st edition (Shifreen & Jackson A25a). Stated limitation of 250 cc. Original publisher's black cloth binding with gilt stamped lettering. Red, gold & black mottled paper dust jacket with black printing. VG/VG (spine sunned, with 1 cm chip from each end).. 88, [4 (blank)] pp. 8vo. 9-1/4" x 6-1/4" Shifreen & Jackson question the limitation, citing the print run needed for profitability, and frequency on the market, though they do speculate that the 3 states of the first [ours given priority] may each have had a run of 250 cc. Shifreen & Jackson also debunk the notion this book printed by John Henry Nash, citing Miller correspondence noting otherwise. This first state binding increasingly uncommon, especially in the original jacket.

Miller, Henry

Grove Press, Inc. MASS MARKET PAPERBACK. B001JKRHGK Long inscription on half tile, signed by Miller 2/20/75: "For... Written expressly for Huntington Cairns, unacknowledged literary censor for books from abroad. (Under Sec'y of Treasury, Morganthau)." Second printing Grove BC 97. Tight binding, BUT it appears that this slim paperback of about 125 pp was the victim of someone who tried to tear it in half: small break to spine, then about a two inch break to back cover, and some diminishing page breaks back to the gutter p. 55. Still, it is very presentable, and if slightly fanned open will stand upright. . Good.

The World of Sex (vintage adult paperback, 1967)

Miller, Henry

Collectors Publications, 1967. Very Good. Vintage adult paperback, the publishers producing high-volume text fiction line of books, this being a special title by a known author. Miller wrote this in Big Sur, California. A book where, according to Hugo Heyrman, "Miller seeks to set the record straight and argues that there is no contradiction between his salacious novels and his philosophy. Throughout his pamphlet, Miller makes liberal use of raw language to narrate his own experiences as a young man and formulate his philosophical conclusions. Motivated both by a mischievous desire to shock and by a candid endeavor to to achieve a crude and precise language, Miller triumphs thanks to his entertaining and seductive enthusiasm." Moderate rubbing/toning. Very Good Plus.
