CARESSE CROSBY. FROM BLACK SUN TO ROCCASINIBALDA

Santa Barbara: Capra Press, 1989. First Edition. Cloth. (xii) 239 pages. First Edition. Illustrated dust jacket. Octavo. Cloth. Notes. Bibliography. Index. From the jacket flap: "A glittering figure among the avant-garde of Paris in the 1920s, Caresse Crosby is little known today. She and her husband Harry founded Black Sun Press, early publishers of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and such titans as D. H. Lawrence, Ezra Pound and James Joyce. This flamboyant chapter of her life ended when Harry and his lover shot themselves in a sensational suicide pact. Caresse was then thirty-six." This is largely the story of Caresse Crosby's life after Black Sun, when she lived as a free spirit, took many lovers, and supported artists and the cause of world peace among other pursuits. Incidentally, she claimed to have invented the brassiere. A Fine copy in a Near Fine (Slight edgewear; small chip at rear upper cover) dust jacket, now in a clear mylar protective sleeve.
