Item Description: London: Jonathan Cape, 1924, 1924. Octavo. Original yellow cloth-backed green boards, blue paper title label lettered in dark blue to spine. With the pictorial dust jacket. Faint ownership signature to front free endpaper. An excellent copy in a rubbed and partially toned jacket with a few minor nicks and small loss to bottom edge front panel. Black and white frontispiece. First edition in English, first impression. Lawrence took on this translation commission from Cape just after having enlisted in the Tank Corps. Typically he denigrated both the novel itself and his work on it sending his finished draft to the publishers accompanied by a note, "At last this foul work: complete. Damn Adrien le Corbeau and his rhetoric. The book is a magnificent idea, ruined by jeune bombast. My version is better than his: but dishonest here and there: but my stomach turned. Couldn't help it." Originally published in France in 1922 under the title Le Gigantesque, roman d'un arbre. Uncommon, especially so in the jacket. O'Brien A094. Bookseller Inventory # 104420

Item Description: Jonathan Cape, London, 1924. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. A presentation copy, inscribed on the half-title by Charlotte F. Shaw (the wife of George Bernard Shaw, and a close friend and correspondent of Lawrence's) to that doyen of booksellers, J.G. Wilson of Bumpus who assisted TE with the subscribers for the '26 SP: "J.G. Wilson from Charlotte F. Shaw, 13 March 1929" In original quarter yellow cloth with green boards, backstrip with printed label, a touch of wear to one corner, edges rough trimmed, dustjacket with darkened backstrip panel frayed at either end with some loss at foot, a little chipping to corners. Lawrence's very free translation of 'Le Gigantesque' was taken on to fill his time following expulsion from the RAF, but became a burden: he complained to Cape that 'at last this foul work' was 'complete. Please [.] get it off my suffering chest before I burst'. (O'Brien A094) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall. Presentation Copy Signed By Charlotte Shaw. Bookseller Inventory # 046160

Item Description: Jonathan Cape, London, 1924. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: very good. First Edition. 12mo, 158 pp. Yellow cloth spine with paper label, green paper-covered boards. A fine copy inscribed on the front free endpaper from Lawrences's friend J.G. Wilson (bookseller and proprietor of J.& E. Bumpus Ltd) to journalist H.D. Ziman, dated 26 July 1933. Dust jacket has internal repairs--including to two horizontal tears to the spine that are visible externally--but is clean and complete. Lawrence's only translation of a French book. According to the introduction to the Castle Hill Press edition, Lawrence knew little about Corbeau. The text was suggested by Jonathan Cape, after he wrote to them: 'If you, as a publisher, ever have anything in French which needs translating (for a fee!) please give me a chance at it. I've plenty [of] leisure in the Army, and my French is good, and turning it into English is a pleasure to me: also the cash would be welcome, however little it was." O'Brien A094.
