Caresse Crosby : From Black Sun to Roccasinibalda.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Carson, Ann C.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Caresse Crosby, with her flamboyant husband Harry Crosby, were a fiery couple in Paris in the Twenties--important members of the avant-garde community of expatriates. The couple launched the Black Sun Press while in Paris and published early works by Hemingway, Fitzgerald, D.H. Lawrence, Ezra Pound, and James Joyce. Among her many accomplishments, she is remembered for inventing the brassiere in an attempt to liberate women from the constrictions of whalebone corsets. Her life in Paris ended when her troubled husband shot a lover in a New York hotel room then killed himself. Caresse went on to involve herself in peace and pacifist issues until she died at her Italian castle in 1970.
