Lawrence First Edition & Letter

A seemingly untouched, as-new first edition in its as-new dust jacket of D.H. Lawrence’s The Rainbow (London: Methuen, 1915) into which is laid an historic Lawrence letter. The ALS to his agent, J. B. Pinker, dated 17 Nov. 1915, reveals Lawrence’s frustration in regard to the police’s seizure of most of the edition of The Rainbow, due to the novel’s 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.” Housed in a custom-made quarter morocco clamshell box. $125,000
