Third printing of The Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller
A third printing of this classic and landmark novel with a preface by the essayist Anais Nin, (February 21, 1903 – January 14, 1977). The novel caused some consternation on publication and this edition of the novel was banned in the U. S. A. until 1964. Any copies were read “underground” making it unusual to find a copy in a fine condition. This original edition is in a good/fair condition and a rare find.
