The spine is subtly rolled and darkened. There is a small soiled scuff mark on the bottom edge of the text block. The endsheets have large areas of discoloration. In a very good dust jacket. Mildly yellowed, soiled and rubbed. There are under a dozen very small, faint damp stains on the jacket. The creased edges have multiple chips, short closed tears and very small losses. The internal non-visible side is foxed. Overall, an attractive jacket. Miller entered into the writer's circle with Tropic of Cancer, which still proves to be Miller's most famous work. Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn depict Miller's lives and loves as an expatriate in Paris. They were first published in France by Jack Kahane at Obelisk Press in the mid-thirties. When the works were brought to the United States, they sparked a thirty year censorship debate that was eventually won by Miller. Inscribed by Miller in the year of publication on the front free endsheet.
