(Puerto Rico), Carrefour, (1939). Letters between Michael Fraenkel and Henry Miller. This is the trade edition: one of 475 copies. A fine copy in wrappers. A beautiful copy of this book published by one of the most important avant garde presses of the 20th century, which was founded by Fraenkel and American poet Walter Lowenfels, who introduced Fraenkel to Miller. Miller, Fraenkel and Lowenfels formed what has come to be known as the "Triumvirate of Death," because so much of their writing -- and that published by Carrefour -- focused on the theme of the spiritual death of Western Man.
