Black Sun. The Brief Transit and Violent Eclipse of Harry Crosby.
by [Paris the 1920s] Wolff, Geoffrey.

Publisher Information:
Random House, New York: 1976.

A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Crosby, the nephew of J.P. Morgan, volunteered for service as an ambulance driver during World War I and during the battle of Verdun suffered a direct artillery hit that should have killed him. But his miraculous survival forever traumatized him whereby he thereafter challenged death. After the war, he returned to Paris with his new wife, Caresse Crosby, founded the Black Sun Press publishing many of the literary notables in Paris in the Twenties and became the focal point of the wild expatriate community. At age 31 he was involved in a double suicide in a New York hotel with his mistress thus ending his tragic and highly energetic life.
