Miller, Jonathan. ON FURTHER REFLECTION: 60 YEARS OF WRITING. London, England: Skyscraper Publishing, 2014. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 326 pages. Fine/Fine.

Retrospective collection of essays. One of the most valuable literary collections of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the American Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Jonathan Miller's "On Further Reflection: 60 Years of Writing". Sixty years of unsurpassed intelligence, insight, and humane thinking. "His writings have been scattered across a series of books and articles over the last sixty years. This selection gives an idea of the depth and variety of his preoccupations. Each extract has an Introduction by Miller, setting it in the context of his interests. Casts light on many aspects of the world which we take for granted, and illuminates them with original insights. Incorporates ideas which have made Miller a unique presence on the cultural scene" (Publisher's blurb). Jonathan Miller is one of the most important and most influential writer/stage director/art historian/intellectuals of our time. Originally a member of the legendary group, "Beyond The Fringe", Jonathan Miller has gone on to become the Renaissance Man of contemporary Western culture. His stage directions of the classics as well as opera and new works are now part of the theatrical canon. A doctor by training, he never practised, but produced the ground-breaking "The Body In Question", widely regarded as the best book (and television documentary series) on the history of medicine. He organized the exhibition called "Mirror Image", and the catalog he wrote to accompany it, "On Reflection", is a great book (it's also what the present title alludes to). An absolute "must-have" title for Jonathan Miller collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Jonathan Miller. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great collection. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Precedes and should NOT be confused with the American Edition. Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest artist/thinkers of our time. A fine collectible copy.
