A highly presentable copy of this uncommon Miller work.
From the dust jacket flap, about the book: Regarded by a vast audience as one of the most important living writers, Henry Miller here explores his lifelong experience in painting, describes his own exciting work (20 of his watercolors are reproduced in full color within the book), recounts his friendships with the painters of our own time, and tells of the masters whom he especially admires. Also included in this edition of this long out-of-print Miller work are letters selected from his correspondence with his longtime friend, Emil Schnellock, which were published privately in 1944, but which now form a text that further reveals Miller's own devotion to painting. Very good / very good. Item #5938
