The Colossus of Maroussi.

  • Miller, Henry
  • London: Heinemann 1960


SKU: 3444 Category: Tags: ,


8vo, pp. [iv], 248. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, dustjacket printed in black, blue, and orange. Spine slightly blotchy, dustjacket a little soiled and rubbed, spine ends bumped. Ownership inscription dated 1960 to front flyleaf, a short autograph note from Miller pasted to front pastedown, and the front of an envelope (affected by damp) addressed in Miller’s hand loosely inserted.


The note from Miller, apologising for not writing sooner (and inscribed 'genuine "holograph"' beneath his signature), is on glazed paper printed 'A Dream of a Book', presumably part of the leaflet of that name that Miller issued in 1958 - with the envelope printed to match.
