  • D.H. Lawrence in Australia – Robert Darroch – First Edition 1981

    D.H. Lawrence in Australia – Robert Darroch – First Edition 1981

    A very good copy of the first edition of Darroch’s most interesting account of D.H.Lawrence Down Under.

    Published by Macmillan, Melbourne in 1981. Octavo, 130 pages, nicely illustrated.

    Lawrence was in Australian in 1922 during which time when in New South Wales he penned the worthy novel “Kangaroo”. A work that was once dismissed as imaginary but in fact based on a half-forgotten period of violence and hatred in Australia. As in Europe fascism was building. His protagonist Richard Lavat Somers was a writer and maybe from that fact some believed the work partly autobiographical … we doubt it.

    D.H.Lawrence out and about in Australia and the making of “Kangaroo”.

  • Birds, Beasts and Flowers – D.H. Lawrence

    Birds, Beasts and Flowers – D.H. Lawrence

    A really nice presentation of D.H. Lawrence’s collection of poems by the thoughtful “Black Sparrow Press” of Santa Rosa, published in 2001.

    Large octavo, 213 pages, printed on superior acid free paper. Unusual cloth covered boards with artwork from the first edition pasted on, paper labels to spine, all add a craft feel to the production which we love.

    On publishing these poems D.H. Lawrence had soon to remove a not insubstantial number of lines considered indecent in 1923. Here they are restored … the publishers state along with a few minor emendations of typographical errors.

    D.H.L. Nicely done and restored to all its Glory.

  • D.H. Lawrence and the Body Mystical – Frederick Carter – First Edition 1932

    D.H. Lawrence and the Body Mystical – Frederick Carter – First Edition 1932

    An unusual book on aspects of Lawrence’s thinking and a fine production, printed in “Private Press Style” published by Denis Archer, London.

    Largish octavo format, 63 pages with extra blanks. Frontispiece of D.H. Lawrence by the author who was a skilled etcher. Printed on sumptuous Japan Vellum. Bound quarter black cloth over lightly marbled paper covered boards. Design, partly in gilt to front with titles, gilt titles to spine. A little rubbed at the corners and a slight stain to one of the rear blanks otherwise a very good copy.

    Frederick Carter (1885-1967) knew D.H. Lawrence very well … Lawrence would stay with Carter at his house in Shropshire. There they would share and develop their views on humanity. It was a time in Lawrence’s life that he was concerned with his health and the English cold and damp. He craved warmer climes. One of his favourite if not most favourite places was Mexico where he saw something unusual and special in the people.

    Fine and worthwhile book on D.H. Lawrence by a man who knew him well.

  • Love and The Luxembourg – Richard Aldington – First American, Fine, Limited and Signed – 1930

    Love and The Luxembourg – Richard Aldington – First American, Fine, Limited and Signed – 1930

    Beautiful presentation of Aldington’s lengthy poem a first American edition published by Convici, Friede Inc New York 1930. Limited edition of 475 copies of which this is number 400. The book was designed by Frederic Warde and printed by William Edwin Rudge … signed nicely by Richard Aldington and Frederic Warde.

    Large octavo, 53 pages plus the limitation. Bound in stylish burgundy cloth cover boards with gilt flower design to front with gild boarders and gilt designs to spine. Top edge nicely gilt other edges rough cut. Slipcase as issued. A fine copy.

    Richard Aldington (1892-1962) was a founding poet of the Imagist movement. He fought on the Western Front during WWI and wrote “Death of a Hero” widely acclaimed. Much can be said about him .. his friendships included Ezra Pound (an early mentor), D.H. Lawrence, W.B. Yeats, T.S. Elliot, Joyce, Hemingway .. says it all … what a period!

    Love and the Luxembourg is about his love for American writer Brigit Patmore (For B.) who he was in a relationship with 1928-1936 … he left her for her daughter in law.

    Later in life he wrote a brief biography on T.E. Lawrence which suggested various things previously unsaid about the great man’s character. Aldington was never forgiven for this “abuse” and lived the rest of his life out in France.

    Aldington a special poet with literary contacts
