    Anaïs Nin. Two Editions of House of Incest, including: The House of Incest. Paris: Siana Editions, [1936].

Minor wear to wrappers, with a noticeable bump and short split to the spine tail. Crease lines to spine. Very good. [and:] House of Incest. [New York]: Gemor Press, [1947]. First American edition. Twelvemo. 52 pages. Publisher's orange cloth titled and decoratively stamped on the front cover. Minor fraying to cloth. Dust-soiling.
