Item #74033 THE WORLD OF SEX. Henry Miller.


Chicago: Printed by J.H.N. for Friends of Henry Miller, 1940. First Edition. Hardcover. Though the limitation states only 250 copies were printed, the actual number is believed to be between 750 and 1,000. Signed by Henry Miller on a prefatory blank leaf. In this uncompromising literary manifesto, Miller (1891-1980) argues that sex is at the heart of his writing because it is at the heart of life - a vital force as essential as bread, money, work, or play. Drawing on his own experiences and on the writing of his famously banned novels in Paris, he shows sex as a mysterious realm that must be explored if we are to be truly free. Octavo. In the first binding variant: full natural finish black cloth-covered boards with a gold paper title label affixed to the front panel. Largely uncut. A fine copy. Shifreen & Jackson A25b. Fine. Item #74033
