Stanford: James Ladd Delkin, 1946. First edition. Limited to 500 copies. INSCRIBED BY MILLER on front free endpaper, "To Joseph Whitnah, during a recess at Big Sur. Best of greetings. Henry Miller 9/1/46." Whitnah, a "re-write man" for the Oakland Tribune, compiled two books on California in the mid-1940's A HISTORY OF RICHMOND, CALIFORNIA (1944) and CAPITAL OF THE UNITED NATIONS IN THE MORAGA VALLEY (circa 1945), which was part of a failed bid to locate the United Nations in the San Francisco Bay area. Thoreau essays are "Civil Disobedience," "Life without Principle" and "John Brown's Body." Very good with minor rubbing to edges, minor soiling and age toned spine label, otherwise, binding strong, corners sharp. In original, we assume, clear acetate jacket as issued. Very good with covers lightly soiled and foxed and spine label a little tanned. Lacking the dust jacket.
