Sex Locked Out

LAWRENCE, D.H.

  • Quantity available: 1
London: Privately printed 1928, 1928. An unauthorised offprint dated December 1928 of an article dated November 25th 1928 from the Sunday Dispatch. pp.12. Issued without wrappers but with protective tissue cover, bound with white cord, edges untrimmed. A fine copy. A fine copy of this fragile unauthorised offprint of an article published in the Sunday Dispatch on November 25th 1928. McDonlaid's bibliography suggests that the article may have been reprinted in London as a Christmas greeting, and affirms that Lawrence was probably unaware of its publication, but this is not entirely certain. It is doubtful that the booklet was ever offered for sale, and the number of copies issued is unknown. Lawrence wrote to Bernard Faulk, the editor of the Sunday Dispatch, and told him that he would "rather write for the Sunday Dispatch than for the high-brow papers and magazines. Though the thought of the godless Sabbath public makes me shiver a bit, I still believe it has more spunk than the 'refined' ... Read more

Original decorative wrappers, stapled. Very slight marking to lower cover but otherwise a near fine copy. Lawrence produced this work for the Daily Chronicle while waiting for Lady Chatterley's Lover to start selling.

It was discovered by Roy Spencer in the files of the Daily Chronicle. The book reproduces in print the finished manuscript version, the variorum manuscript version and the newspaper version together with notes and short essays on the publishing history of the work. We are selling 14 copies of this paperback version of That Women know best. They are all in the same condition as described here.

Tubingen and Berlin: J.J. Heckenhauer 2000, 2000. Limited edition, number 212 of 750. Unpaginated. Bound in green cloth over boards. Title printed in white to upper cover and spine. "DL07" embossed on upper cover. Excellent condition. Twelve page introductory essay by Ian Jeffrey, text in German and English. Twenty black and white photographs. "DL07" refers to Tirana, in Albania (it is a US map reference) which Liebchen visited during a period of peace. His photographs, however, use all the visual grammar and vocabulary of classic war photography to give the impression of a city at war. His purpose is to show that war photography has its own conventions which can exist separately from the veracity of the subject matter. The question thus arises: is war photography a work of journalistic realism or a work of art? Jeffery's essay suggests that we should see DL07 "as a kind of Arte Povera".

Stockholm [Holmia] Laurent. Ludo. Grefing. 1753, 1753. First edition. pp.[4], 20. Woodcut headpiece, initial, tailpiece. Some light browning, old ms. ink number '12' to corner of title-page. Disbound. In grey card folder. This short dissertation bears the name of Jacob Biuur but behind this attribution lies Biuur's professor, the eminent taxonomist Carl Linnaeus (1707-78). It was common practice at Swedish universities at this time for students to defend in public debate and pay for the printing of a dissertation for whose contents their professor was actually responsible. This should therefore be considered a supplement by Linnaeus himself to his Bibliotheca botanica of 1736 (reprinted 1751). In it, he updates his bibliography of botanical works, paying special attention to the 'Epoch of the Reformers' from 1735 onwards - that is, to works written after his Bibliotheca botanica. The last four pages include an interesting digression by Linnaeus on the effect of copper engraving on the ... Read more

Mallorca: En la Oficina de la Viuda Frau 1753, 1753. First vernacular edition. 4to. 195x140mm. pp.[viii], [2] plates, 252. Folding table of contents and folding woodcut illustration preceding A1, woodcut vignettes to text. Title-page trimmed and extended at lower margin (probably to erase inscription), a couple of pages lightly browned. Contemporary Spanish limp vellum, title in ink to spine, lacking ties. Some internal cracking at the hinges and the usual warping. An excellent copy of a very rare book. First vernacular edition. The Catalan philosopher and missionary Llull (c.1232c.1316) is best known for his 'great art', a theory of logic which, he believed, united all strands of knowledge under one universal method. This elaborate, mystically inspired universal system of knowledge was intended to convert unbelievers. The present text is a pre?guration, written in 1304, of his grand theory elaborated a year later in the Ars magna. It proposes that there is a 'ladder of understanding' of eight entities and ...
