Item Description: New York: Thomas Seltzer, 1922, 1922. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles gilt to spine and front board. With the supplied dust jacket. Spine dulled, ends and corners rubbed, hinges just starting but overall a very good copy in the mildly spine-faded and lightly soiled dust jacket, with a few very small chips and tears to edges and some tape repair to head of spine panel verso. First edition, first impression, presentation copy to E. M. Forster, inscribed by the author to E. M. Forster on the front free endpaper, "E.M., from D.H.L. Taos, 6 Nov 1922" and with Forster's "This book belongs to." ticket. Forster and Lawrence met in 1915, when Forster visited Lawrence at Greatham, sharing "two hours walk in the glorious country", interspersing a searching philosophical debate with "breaks to look at birds, catkins, etc." From this date they were firm friends, sharing correspondence (even after Lawrence settled in Taos in 1922) and a strong sense of intellectual camaraderie throughout their lives. Indeed, when Lawrence died in 1930, Forster was notable as the most sympathetic voice among a flurry of dismissive obituaries, hailing Lawrence as "the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation". Much later, in 1960, Forster appeared as a witness for the defence in the obscenity trial over Penguin's unexpurgated publication of Lady Chatterley's Lover. An excellent association copy of Lawrence's philosophical follow-up to Psychoanalysis and the Unconscious (1921), boldly feted on the jacket as "the most important work that has appeared since the publication of Nietzsche's Zarathustra".

Item Description: Privately Printed. Florence, Italy. 1928, 1928. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION. Large 8vo. (9.1 x 6.7 inches). LIMITED EDITION. One of 1000 numbered copies, signed by Lawrence on the limitation page. A bright and clean copy internally with a small previous owners bookplate on the front paste down endpaper. In the original mulberry coloured paper covered boards with black Phoenix design on the front board. Re-spined, some time ago, with mulberry coloured paper to match the boards and with the original white printed paper label re-applied to the spine. The label is a little rubbed and darkened and a small piece of the top corner, not affecting the lettering, has come away and been re-glued in place. The re-spine has been executed sympathetically and professionally many years ago and has aged nicely with the book. One small split, without loss, to the bottom 1.5 inches of the front hinge and some minor rubbing to the edges but overall a very good copy of this important book. Top edge rough trimmed, fore and bottom edges are untrimmed. Text missprints present on pages 4,6,25,78, and 219, as per Warren Roberts' Bibliography of D. H. Lawrence, item number A42, note on page 99. ----- Printed at the Tipografia Giuntina in Florence, under the direction of L. Franceschini, for Lawrence, and at his own expense, the book was offered for sale in the spring of 1928 for the price of Two Pounds. The fears of Police raids and the imminent suppression of the book in both England and America saw Lawrence selling the last copies for Four pounds by December that year and ordering another edition, of only 200 copies on common paper, from the printers. The literary merits of Lawrence's novel have been the subject of much debate but, like it or not, the book proved to be a hugely important work in the battle against censorship. Signed by Author(s).

Item Description: Lawrence, D. H. THE PAINTINGS OF D. H. LAWRENCE.London: Privately Printed at the Mandrake Press,1929. Folio, with 26 color plates. First edition,one of ten copies on Japanese vellum. Originalfull vellum, gilt, a.e.g. A very nearly fine copy,with an erasure from front free end paper. Thiscopy contains the typeset "out of series" noticein the colophon, as noted by Roberts, and is notsigned by Lawrence. The entire edition consistedof 500 copies on Arches handmade paper and boundin quarter leather, plus ten copies on Japanesevellum and bound in full vellum, as here. Thepaintings were exhibited at Dorothy Warren'sgallery for three weeks in 1929 before beingseized by the police, who also removed someWilliam Blake illustrations they found offensive(we must assume that Scotland Yard's best andbrightest were assigned to other cases at themoment). The Aga Khan arrived at the gallery toview them just as the police were preparing tocart them off; the cops stood quietly to one sideuntil the Aga Khan had finished viewing them. Thepolice actually removed just thirteen of thetwenty-six paintings, but eventually returned themto Frieda Lawrence. They were later exhibited inVenice in 1931, and soon after, Frieda was allowedto bring them into the United States, but onlywith the stipulation that she never put them onpublic display. At the time of her death she stillowned nine of the paintings; the rest had beensold or given to various friends. RobertsA46.b. Bookseller Inventory # 18628

Phyllis Whitworth staged a production of Lawrence's play David at the Regent Theatre towards the end of May 1927. Because of ill health Lawrence had not been able to leave Italy and Germany to attend any of the rehearsals in England but had kept in touch with Whitworth by letter. On 13 May he wrote to her giving advice on monologues and suggesting ideas for costumes; two weeks later he sent Whitworth his latest book and wrote "I am sending you my last book, in commemoration of David" (see Letter 4032a in Boulton, Uncollected Letters, vol.VIII).

Item Description: Penguin Designer Classic, 2006. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. IMMACULATE NEW copy of this supreme collectable in the Penguin Classic Anniversary Editions. This remarkable and very beautiful edition has become the most sought after edition in the series by far. Sir Paul Smith designed the book, and chose to cover the board binding in delicate embroidered silk, which features the flowers Lawrence mentions in the book. The silk has been used for every aspect of this gorgeous book; even the Penguin logo is embroidered in silk. This particular copy has a unique signed pictorial card from the great designer himself, which is loose laid on the title page. This really is a breathtaking production in every way, from its large format pages to its silk covering over the top of the binding boards, all the way to the heavy lucite case that was especially designed for the book, and which has a subtle explanatory text silk screened on to it, and which I found too difficult to photograph. For once, the hype is well worth the result. Truly, this is a classic. Signed by Illustrator(s). Bookseller Inventory # 003790

Contemporary newspaper account of the book's suppression tipped-in to rear pastedown. Very lightly rubbed at extremities, corners a little bumped, some spotting to edges of text block, endpapers, and occasionally to contents, title page partially browned from inserted bookmark.

At Bow Street magistrates' court on 13 November it was banned as obscene, with the result that half of the print run of 1250 copies was destroyed. This copy may have survived as it was a presentation copy, as indicated by the ink stamp on its title page. Tipped-in on the rear pastedown is a contemporary account, from the Times on November 15, 1915, of the court order that the print run be destroyed, with the police commissioner responsible reporting that, "The book in question was a mass of obscenity of thought, idea, and action throughout, wrapped up in language which he supposed would be regarded in some quarters as an artistic and intellectual effort, and he was at a loss to explain how Messrs. Methuen had come to lend their name to its publication". Bookseller Inventory # 87586

Item Description: The Poetry Bookshop 35 Devonshire St. Theobalds Rd. London W.C Printed by W. H. SMITH & SON The Arden Press Stamford Street London S.E.1, 1923. [10] + 244 + [2]pp., 8vo, consisting of sixteen loose signatures, unstitched and unbound, wrapped in a piece of green paper on which is written in pencil 'Group 2 | Special'. Very good, on lightly-aged 'Holbein' wove paper. Each signature with uncut edges, and with only the first four of the eight leaves opened. The type in this edition has not been reset from the first one of 1915, and the only differences detected from that edition are: ONE, 'Published November, 1915.' at the head of the reverse of the half-title; TWO, publication details at foot of title reading 'THE POETRY BOOKSHOP | 35 DEVONSHIRE ST. THEOBALDS RD. | LONDON W.C. | MCMXXIII'; THREE, footnote on p.3 (keyed in to the title on the first line of the page) reading: '*Copyright by Gordon Bottomley, 1915, in the United States of America.'; FOUR, numerous additions to the 'Bibliography', pp.241-244, adding titles of poetry books published by the various contributors between the 1915 first printing and 1922; FIVE, final leaf carrying two pages of advertisements, the first beginning with 'Georgian Poetry (I) 1911-1912 | Sixteenth Thousand. Brown Boards. 6/- net | (postage 5d.).' and also carrying advertisements for the three other volumes in the series, as well as two 'Books Decorated by Claud Lovat Fraser' and W. H. Davies's 'Shorter Lyrics of the Twentieth Century, 1900-1922'; the second (and final) page advertising, within a ruled border, 'The Poetry Bookshop' (with 'READINGS OF POETRY' and 'LISTS'). Printer's slug centred outside the border at foot of page reads: 'Printed by W. H. SMITH & SON, The Arden Press, Stamford Street, | London, S.E.1.' This is the second volume of the five in Marsh's influential series (it gave its name to a whole school of poetry and provoked contempt amongst the modernists), covering the years 1911-1922, and features contributions by Gordon Bottomley, Rupert Brooke (including his most famous poem, 'The Soldier'), William H. Davies, Walter de la Mare, John Drinkwater, James Elroy Flecker, Wilfred Wilson Gibson, Ralph Hodgson, D. H. Lawrence, Francis Ledwidge, John Masefield, Harold Monro, James Stephens and Lascelles Abercrombie. In his 1988 bibliography of the Poetry Bookshop, J. Howard Woolmer noted (p.31) that 'No copy of the special edition of Georgian Poetry II has been located. It was published in June 1923 at 7s 6d, was bound in buckram with dust jacket, and the pagination would be identical to that in the original edition with the exception of the bibliography which was probably extended to include books by the contributors published since 1915. The size and the printer would be the same as the original edition.' As the above indicates, Woolmer was right in his surmises, and it may be that this 'special edition' was not published. The eight copies of a 1923 edition on COPAC and OCLC WorldCat would appear to be copies of the 'Seventeenth Thousand' of the trade edition, published in that year. Bookseller Inventory # 14988
