  • Publisher: Privately Printed 1928
  • Date published: 1928
  • Format: Hardcover
365pp. Octavo. An early pirated edition, limited to 1500 copies. Light brown/pinkish paper covered boards with a cream coloured title label with black lettering affixed to the spine. Edges roughly trimmed. Minor rubbing along the edges of the boards; mild fading to the spine. Internally clean and tight. Marked as number 685 out of an edition of 1500 copies on the limitation page. An attractive copy. An early, possibly the first(?), pirated edition of one of the seminal suppressed books of the 20th century, privately printed in Italy to circumscribe censorship in Britain, where it was not published in unexpurgated form until 1960. This version very closely resembles the first edition in both look and textual errors, with the only noticable difference being that there is no phoenix stamped to the front board, the amount printed--1500 copies instead of 1000--and the fact that it has not been signed by Lawrence.

Copy No. 241 of D. H. Lawrence's separately published introduction to the Paris popular edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover, together with the first trade edition of the expanded introduction, published the following year under the title A Propos of Lady Chatterley's Lover. Jolly Roger: Slim Demy 8vo (218 x 147mm): [12]pp, with scarce erratum slip laid in. Publisher's speckled beige paper-covered boards, matching beige paper title label printed in black to upper cover, patterned end papers printed in rose and black. A Very Fine copy without noticeable flaw. A Propos: Slim crown 8vo (189 x 115mm): 62,[2]pp, with title-page vignette. Publisher's French blue cloth ruled and lettered in brown; salmon-pink illustrated dust jacket ruled and lettered in black and priced 3/6. An excellent example, tightly bound and clean throughout. Roberts A48 (Although the limitation statement states that 600 copies were printed, "the first printing consisted of 700 copies according to the publishers.") and A48b. These introductions were Lawrence's response to the controversy of Lady Chatterley's Lover and the rampant piracy of the novel. In the spring of 1928, Lawrence had commissioned the Tipografia Guintina, in Florence, to print Lady Chatterley's Lover after it was rejected by numerous English publishers. He planned to sell one thousand signed and numbered copies for £2 each, with friends acting as agents. By the end of the year, nearly all copies were sold, despite (or perhaps because of) the novel being banned from the United States and about to be suppressed in London. In these introductions, Lawrence took a two-pronged approach to the defense of Lady Chatterley's Lover. He began by explaining his decision to bring out an authorized popular edition, in response to the piracies. Then he broached the topic of sex , arguing in favor of treating sex respectfully but explicitly in literature. N. B.

All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

  • Date published: 2006
  • Format: Hardcover
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. 0.0 0.0 0.0

Florence: Privately Printed by the Tipografia Giuntina, 1928. 4to 2 p.l., 365, [1] pp., [1] leaf (blank). FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES, SIGNED BY LAWRENCE. Original publisher's mulberry-colored paper boards, edges untrimmed, note chips to spine, else quite lovely. Roberts A-42a. 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.

A Fine First Edition of "Lady Chatterley's Lover" Complete with the Rare Dust Jacket and the Very Rare Original Glassine Wrapper Laid in is a Signed Postcard from Lawrence to his Sister-in-Law LAWRENCE, 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. The book underneath is so perfect as to leave little doubt that it was set aside untouched, unread, and covered with this dustjacket and the original glassine wrapper which has protected the paper dust jacket since it was published. 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).
