TROPIC OF CANCER.

New York: MEDVSA, 1940. First U.S. edition of the author's first and most famous book. The publisher, Jacob Brussel, eventually went to prison for publishing pornography. One of 1000 copies in the first issue of light green boards with gilt spine lettering. An overrun of 200 to 500 unbound sheets were printed for later distribution, accounting for the nine variants which followed this first issue. [Shifreen & Jackson A9j]. Spine lettering rubbed but readable, spine and board edges toned, green top stain fading, hinges cracked. Altogether good or better.
