TROPIC OF CANCER by Henry Miller. First American edition in near fine condition with near fine dust jacket. An important American novel, this book was banned in the USA when it was first published in France in 1934. A US Supreme Court obscenity case decided the book is not pornography, setting a precedent for literary free speech. There is a smudge on the free front endpaper, and a light stain on the fore edge. There are small chips to the dust jacket, and a small discoloration on the DJ front in the white title box. See photos.

CONDITION: Near fine book with near fine dust jacket.
SIZE: Octavo
