    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.

    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.

  • Lady Chatterley’s Lover – D.H. Lawrence – True Pirate Edition 1928

    Lady Chatterley’s Lover – D.H. Lawrence – True Pirate Edition 1928

    Title page states Privately Printed Florence, Italy 1928 but this is one of the pirated editions collectable in their own right because of the double controversy.

    This “pirate” particularly sought after as it appears to be photographically reproduced from the original Tipografia Giutina edition as it contains all typographical errors and the text ends as it should on page 365. The bibliography of D.H. Lawrence by Warren Roberts contains the best discussion on the subject at A42. Very good condition.

    Black moiré patterned cloth covered binding with paper spine title label, rich red endpapers, title page printed in red and black … an “authentic” pirate production.

    You will see that we also have a fine copy of D.H. Lawrence’s “My Skirmish with Jolly Roger” published as a result of this little beauty …. the two together would be luxury in literature!

  • Re Lady Chatterley’s Lover – My Skirmish with Jolly Roger – First Numbered Edition 1929 – D.H. Lawrence

    Re Lady Chatterley’s Lover – My Skirmish with Jolly Roger – First Numbered Edition 1929 – D.H. Lawrence

    Written as an introduction to and a motivation of the Paris edition of Lady Chatterley’s Lover. This is numbered 245 of six hundred copies produced by Lawrence through Random House, New York 1929. Fine condition.

    After the limited private printing in Florence a number of pirated printings turned up in Europe and in the USA. The “cheap” Paris edition was an attempt to stymie any further copies.

    Paper covered boards with separate paper title to front, decorated endpapers a beautiful little production. Published with the error noted in the inserted loose apologia “The printer’s request for the privilege of reprinting this book because of the error in spelling photography on page 3 could not be conceded by the publisher because of the necessity of meeting a publication date”

    Lawrence defends Lady Chatterley … he defends his reluctance of producing an expurgated version “So I begin to be tempted and start to expurgate. But impossible! I might as well try to clip my own nose into shape with scissors. The book bleeds.”
