"Hummingbird" Typescript Pages
Manhattan Rare Books has posted several typescript pages from the essay Stand Still Like The Hummingbird (from the collection of the same name) on their website, complete with Miller's hand-made corrections and margin notes. There are 15 pages in total. Each page can be expanded on the website by clicking on it.
Here are details taken directly from the website:
"This manuscript is believed to have been sent to Miller's Danish publisher, Hans Reitzel, and includes Miller's handwritten note to Reitzel on the title page, "Note! Sorry about corrections but think they are clear. This is the third writing- couldn't do it a fourth time. H.M." With Miller's inked stamp ("Henry Miller / Big Sure, California") on the first page. Dated 20 December, 1959 on last page."
This collection is selling for US $3000.
Also on view are 15 pages from Nexus (which I'll post about next).
