Book Description:

The Prussian Officer contains some of the greatest stories Lawrence ever wrote: 'Odour of Chrysanthemums', 'Daughters of the Vicar', 'The Prussian Officer', and 'The White Stocking'. This edition, based on Lawrence's manuscripts, typescripts and corrected proofs, is the first to remove the corruptions introduced by copyists, typists and printers.
