THE COSMOLOGICAL EYE. Henry Miller. THE COSMOLOGICAL EYE.
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.

INSOMNIA: Or, The Devil at Large. Henry Miller. INSOMNIA: Or, The Devil at Large.
Albuquerque, NM: Loujon Press, 1970. First edition, limited issue, this one being number 10 of "99" copies in "Edition F" (there were actually 65 at most, see below) with twelve loose watercolor prints, THREE of which are SIGNED AND DATED 10/15/70 BY MILLER, as called for [Shifreen & Jackson A175f]. The three prints SIGNED BY MILLER are "Insomnia No. 1" (8/3/66); "Insomnia No. 2" (8/22/66); and "2nd Insomnia Series, No. 1" (5/8/67). Large, elaborate production; housed in decorative wooden box measuring approximately 24 x 19 x 1.5" with sliding wood cover (actually wood paneling, smooth side up) illustrated with photograph of Miller and wife "Hoki" beneath which is affixed an antiqued copper plate engraved "Ed. F." Each of the TWELVE COLOR PRINTS is printed on heavy artist's paper and measures approximately 22.5 x 17.5". Also includes a large, heavy card stock title sheet and the book itself -- another elaborate production of plain, comb-bound boards with foil paper dust jacket (made from wall paper?); in facsimile manuscript and illustrated with photographs throughout. "Edition F" was initially planned for 192 copies and later reduced to 99, Shifreen & Jackson estimate that NO MORE THAN 65 COPIES WERE ACTUALLY PRODUCED and that ONLY 300 WOODEN BOXES WERE EVER CONSTRUCTED for the total edition (note to Shifreen & Jackson A175a, p.408). The book and prints are best described by Miller's daughter, Valentine, on her tribute website: "In the mid 60s Dad became infatuated by a cabaret singer from Japan named Hoki Tokuda. He would spend hours at the piano bar in the Imperial Gardens Restaurant in Hollywood, listening to Hoki sing. He eventually wooed and married her. In 1965-6 he got insomnia worrying about the relationship and wrote a small book called Insomnia or the Devil at Large and during those sleepless nights painted a dozen watercolors, the Insomnia series." Light finger smudges to half-title sheet, otherwise book, prints, and box are all fine.

GEJAAGD DOOR DE WIND [GONE WITH THE WIND]. Margaret Mitchell. GEJAAGD DOOR DE WIND [GONE WITH THE WIND].
Anton Piek. Haag: Zuid-Hollandsche Uitgevers Maatschappij(S. Holland Pub. Co), [1937]. Illustrated Dutch edition. A translation of Margaret Mitchell's classic GONE WITH THE WIND in three volumes: "Vuur Over Land [Land on Fire]"; "Als Een Vlam in de Storm [Like a Flame in a Storm]"; "Het Zaad Ontikiemt [The Seed Sprouts]." The first volume is designated a 30th printing on the title page and the other two are designated 28th printings. Must have been some really small printings as the books appear to be scarce. Translated by W. J. A. Roldanus Jr. Illustrated by renowned artist Anton Pieck with over 25 paintings and drawings. Each frontispieces matches the respective dust jacket illustration. Tan boards over green cloth stamped with red and black on spine; intricate emblem on front board in red and gilt. Volume one's dust jacket has a thin closed tear down the left edge of the spine and Volume two's has a tear along the bottom of the spine. All three have some minor damp staining to the base of the spine with only volume two's extending to some of the back pages. Otherwise in very good condition in heavy paper dust jackets with duplicates of color frontis pictures attached to front covers. As best we can determine the set is scarce but the original jackets are much scarcer, perhaps rare.
