Paris: Editions Clairefontaine. 1950.
Original first edition softback, with integral dust wrapper. A series of hand written quotations (in French) to each verso, with an evocative photograph opposite. This copy is complete with the three slips translating Henry Miller’s text into French (these are often lacking). Signed with a gift inscription by Izis Bidermanas. Signed copies of this work are very scarce. The covers are a little worn to the head and tail of the spine, but still attractive. Internally clean and tidy throughout.
Israëlis Bidermanas, who worked under the name of Izis, was a Lithuanian-Jewish photographer who lived and worked in France. He is best known for images of French circuses, and of Paris.
