With a bookplate signed by Henry Miller mounted to the half title page. From the jacket- "It seemed that by the 1960's this country would be eager for a definitive edition of Tropic of Cancer, and Grove Press accordingly arranged with Mr. Miller to publish the book. Subsequent attempts at censorship in the United States shocked serious readers and civil libertarians alike, and reached a peak in the state of Wisconsin, which became a major battleground in the continuing war over freedom to read."
