Norfolk: New Directions, (1939). First edition, first issue, with eye on front cover of book. 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. These critical and philosophical essays, prose poems, surrealist fantasies, travel sketches, and scenarios, show Miller's passion for fiction, for telling the endless stories of his life. In fine condition with pastedowns a little darkened and the photograph on the front cover a touch rubbed. Lacking dust jacket.
