Black Spring was published by Obelisk Press in Paris in 1936 but not published in the United States until 1963 due to obscenity laws. When the Grove Press “Black Cat” edition was released, several of the stories not considered obscene had already been published in other Miller volumes such as The Cosmological Eye, published by New Directions. Several other stories had been published in New Directions’ annual, New Directions in Prose and Poetry.
