Item Description: Methuen [1915], London, 1915. First edition. 8vo. Laid into this copy is an historic Lawrence ALS to his agent, J. B. Pinker, dated "17 Nov. 1915," in which he reacts emotionally to the seizure by the police of most of the edition of "The Rainbow" because of the novel's alleged sexual explicitness. Lawrence asks: "Must I stay for the proceedings about The Rainbow? Must I appear? . I have had letters from a lot of people about The Rainbow . I want to do what I can for the book. Also I want to go away [on a trip to America]. I will stay if it is any good." The letter clearly evinces Lawrence's puzzlement over the novel's suppression, of which only 821 copies of a total edition of 2500 copies survived and were subsequently distributed. The florid 1989 Ken Russell movie, which followed his successful screen adaptation of "Women In Love" two decades earlier, failed to attract much critical and popular attention. Remarkably, this copy, as-new in an as-new dust jacket, seemingly lay untouched from the time of its publication and was not exposed to any physical element that might have compromised its singular beauty. Housed in a custom-made quarter morocco clamshell box. When did you last see a ninety-nine-year-old who looks a ravishing nineteen. Bookseller Inventory # 24173

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: Florence: Privately Printed [by the Tipografia Giuntina], 1928., 1928. A Fine First Edition of "Lady Chatterley’s Lover" Complete with the Rare Dust Jacket and the Very Rare Original Glassine WrapperLaid in is a Signed Postcard from Lawrence to his Sister-in-LawLAWRENCE, D.H. Lady Chatterley’s Lover. [Florence]: Privately Printed [by the Tipografia Giuntina], 1928.First edition. Limited to 1,000 numbered copies, (this being copy number 596) signed by the author. Octavo. [4], 365, [3, blank] pp.Original mulberry boards with printed paper spine label. Front cover printed in black with the Lawrence phoenix. An exceptionally fine copy, completely unopened. In the original plain yellow dust jacket (jacket with a few a little worn and stained at spine extremities. Complete with the exceptionally scarce original glassine wrapper, a little worn and with some staining on spine. Housed in a quarter black morocco clamshell case.This is the finest copy of this book that we have ever seen. The original pale yellow dust jacket is unprinted, little more than a piece of wrapping paper, to both camouflage a "dirty" book and protect it during shipping, and the book underneath is so perfect as to leave little doubt that it was set aside untouched and unread, and covered with this dustjacket for all of its life. The original glassine wrapper has protected the paper dust jacket for all of it's life.Laid in is a postcard (written in German) from D.H. Lawrence, addressed to the Frau Baronin von Richthofen. There were two Baronin von Richthofens. One was Lawrence's wife Frieda and the other was her sister Else. Since Frieda was with Lawrence on this trip, the recipient was probably Else. In the postcard, Lawrence says he is traveling this morning to El Paso and is sending the pictures of the ranch today. The ranch was the Taos property, now known as the D.H. Lawrence Ranch, given to the Lawrence's by Mabel Dodge Luhan and was the place to which Frieda retired after Lawrence's death. The postcard is signed "DHL", is dated "Santa Fe. 18 Okt" and is postmarked October 18th, 1924.Lady Chatterley’s Lover is tripled with Ulysses and Tropic of Cancer as the seminal suppressed books from the first half of the twentieth century.Roberts A42a."No account of Lady Chatterley’s Lover can be complete without some notice of the most memorable review of the novel by Ed Zern, which appeared in Field and Stream for November 1959, p. 142 (see also The D. H. Lawrence Review 8 (Fall 1975) 376-377). It is short and reproduced here for the benefit of those who do not have access to a copy. The review was written as the result of a request from the editor, Hugh Grey, that Mr. Zern choose an outdoor book for review as a "sort of test case".""Although written many years ago, Lady Chatterley’s Lover has just been reissued by the Grove Press, and this fictional account of the day-to-day life of an English gamekeeper is still of considerable interest to outdoor minded readers, as it contains many passages on pheasant raising, the apprehending of poachers, ways to control vermin, and other chores and duties of the professional gamekeeper. Unfortunately one is obliged to wade through many pages of extraneous material in order to discover and savor these sidelights on the management of a Midland shooting estate, and in this reviewer’s opinion this book cannot take the place of J.R. Miller’s Practical Gamekeeping.""Hereafter, no Lawrence collection can be said to be complete without a copy of Miller’s Practical Gamekeeping to place alongside Lady Chatterley’s Lover!" (Warren Roberts, p. 152-153). I. Bookseller Inventory # 03102

Item Description: Privately Printed, Florence:, 1928. hardcover. 1 LIMITED EDITION of 1000 numbered copies, signed by the author. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND INFLUENTIAL NOVELS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY AND ONE WHICH WAS BANNED AND SHUNNED BY BRITISH AND AMERICAN PUBLISHERS WHO SOUGHT TO SENSOR THE FRANK NATURE OF THE WRITING AND ITS EROTIC THEMES. The London publisher, Martin Secker, had refused to publish Lawrence’s unexpurgated version of the story. He thus determined to publish it himself, away from copyright protection in England, in its original form, in this edition of 1,000 copies. The author’s signature on the edition was certainly a mark of giving both the author’s stamp of approval or authentication as well as increasing its collector’s value as a signed book. Lawrence turned to the Tipografia Giuntina or Florence to issue his edition. In 1955 the Dial Press published the first British edition but it was cleaned and not obscene. "Writers including J.B. Priestley, Graham Greene and Aldous Huxley penned passionate defenses of the book, condemning the Government’s description of the novel as "pornographic" and demanding the book be published. In October 1960, Lady Chatterley’s Lover became the first novel to be targeted under the 1959 Obscene Publications Act, when Penguin attempted to publish the book in Britain to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of Lawrence’s death." - Roya Nikkhah, (Oct. 20, 2010), The Telegraph. After a court case it took 32 years before society allowed the book to be published in either the United States or the United Kingdom. Thus in 1959 a court case cleared the way for Penguin Publishers to issue the first authorized unexpurgated edition of Lady Chatterley’s Lover in 1960. Several noted writers wrote in support of Lawrence’s novel: "[Aldous] Huxley provided a handwritten deposition to the defense team, writing: "Lady Chatterley’s Lover is an essentially wholesome book . That a beautiful and serious work of art should run the risk of being banned because its creator . chose to make use of certain words that it is conventional to regard it as shocking – this is surely the height of absurdity."" "Following a two-week trial, on November 2, 1960 the jury delivered a unanimous verdict of "not guilty". Lady Chatterley’s Lover sold more than three million copies within three months of the verdict." – Roya Nikkhah. Warren Roberts & Paul Poplawski, A Bibliography of D. H. Lawrence, Cambridge University Press, (2001), A42a. Small quarto. 365 pp. Original brown printed boards with the black phoenix insignia on the upper cover, printed paper spine label, plain cream jacket, top edge rough-trimmed; faint trace of foxing to fore-edges. The jacket is extremely fine and as well preserved a copy as one might hope to find. Near fine. SUPERB COPY WITH ORIGINAL JACKET. Bookseller Inventory # LV1987

Item Description: New York: Thomas Seltzer, 1922, 1922. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles gilt to spine and front board. With the supplied dust jacket. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. 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: 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.

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).
