Sublunary Editions, January 2023. Trade Paperback. New. Item #622950
New. Around the time he published some of his mostly famous works—Tropic of Cancer, Black Spring, and Tropic of Capricorn, to name a few—Henry Miller handwrote and illustrated six known “long intimate book letters” to his friends, including Anaïs Nin, Lawrence Durrell, and Emil Schnellock. One of these, The Book of Conversations with David Edgar, had been unaccounted for, both unpublished and privately held, until recently, when it came into the possession of the Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Collection of English and American Literature at the New York Public Library. Never before published, The Book of Conversations with David Edgar, will feature a typeset transcription of the original book (including translations of the French passages) as well as fascimile of the pages with Miller’s own handwriting. We have restored to watercolors done on the pages of the book, which will be included in full color ~ Publisher.
