Item Description: New York: Printed for Subscribers Only, 1920, 1920. First Edition. One of 1250 numbered copies. Front hinge cracked; minute cloth rubbing; a fine copy in a custom clamshell box. This is one of only a reported 25 copies signed by Lawrence during his visit to New York and New Jersey in the summer of 1923; the copies to be signed were apparently chosen at random, and issued without a special colophon or binding. No English publisher dared publish this novel, so Lawrence's new American publisher, Thomas Seltzer, issued it in a privately subscribed edition. Fifty sets of sheets were sent to Martin Seltzer in England in 1921 and were issued in brown cloth and signed by the author. Bookseller Inventory # 20070

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".

This is simply a good tpo very gppd copy of one of the major works of British literature in the 20th century. Although poetical in the general treatment of its subject, this book is a landmark in the history of the English novel in that it depicts for the first time in a studied and unabashedly direct way the concrete sexual experience, accompanied by the uninhibited language of real life. The book was first published in Italy because of obstacles erected by the censor in Britain, where it did not circulate in unexpurgated form until 1960. Size: 4tp. Signed by Author. Private Press.

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

Item Description: London: Martin Secker, 1921, 1921. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST TRADE EDITION in extremely rare original dust jacket; preceded by the scarce privately-printed New York limited edition of 1920. "In spite of what he feared would be the fate of his fiction after The Rainbow, in spring 1916 he started again on the ‘Sisters’ material; after an enormous creative effort in which he wrote the whole book twice he had finished the first version of Women in Love by November 1916. But it was rejected by every publisher who saw it; the fact that it contained recognizable re-creations of several people (including Russell, Heseltine, and the Morrells) did not help; nor did its vivid portrayal of what one publisher's reader called ‘the writer's expressions of antipathy to England and the forms of English civilisation’. To Lawrence it was a novel in which ‘I have knocked the first loop-hole in the prison where we are all shut up’ (Letters, 2.663), but it would not be published for another four years" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography).Octavo, original brown cloth, original dust jacket. Decorative bookplate of Montgomery Evans II on front pastedown. Book near-fine, with a little toning to text (as usual); dust jacket with toning to spine, chipping to spine edges and corners including an approximately 1x.75 in chip to top corner of rear panel; tape repairs to verso.

Item Description: Privately Printed. Florence, Italy. 1928, 1928. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION. LIMITED EDITION. 8vo. (9.1 x 6.6 inches). One of 1000 numbered copies, signed by Lawrence. 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 white printed paper label to the spine and black Phoenix design on the front board. 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. 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. Printed at the Tipografia Giuntina in Florence 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: London: Martin Secker, 1927, 1927. Octavo. Original olive cloth, titles to spine gilt, green top-stain. With the dust jacket. Spine slightly rolled and faded, small mark to front free endpaper affecting inscription, spine cracked between pages 80 and 81, contents toned. A very good copy in the lightly rubbed and toned jacket with two tape repairs to the verso of the spine. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper "Mrs. Whitworth from D. H. Lawrence, remembering David. May 1927". 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
