The House of Incest, Anaïs Nin

First edition of Nin's first published work of fiction, inscribed on the front endpaper – "To Claude Bragdon / who understands and feels the language of the symbol / Anaïs Nin." Based on Nin’s dreams, the novel is a surrealistic look within the narrator’s subconscious as she attempts to distance herself from a series of all-consuming and often taboo desires she cannot bear to let go. The incest Nin depicts is a metaphor—a selfish love wherein a woman can appreciate only qualities in a lover that are similar to her own.

Self-published by Nin (the listed publisher Siana is Anaïs spelled backwards) and limited to 249 copies, of which this is 115, printed at the Imprimerie Sainte Catherine in Bruges.

Paris: Siana Editions, 1936. Quarto, pp. 89, [1, colophon], [4, blank]; publisher's printed wrappers in the original glassine jacket, which is chipped and torn. Deaccessioned from Exeter Boys' School with a single bookplate and stamp to verso of front wrapper, written date to front endpaper, else no other markings. Light shelfwear to wraps, a few minor instances of tanning and foxing, overopened at page 32/33 but still secure. A presentable copy, scarce.
