        RAWDON'S ROOF

      1928 - London: Elkin Mathews & Marrot, 1928. Original grey paper-covered boards decorated in blue-grey, with similarly-decorated dust jacket. First Edition, being No. 141 of 530 copies SIGNED by D.H. Lawrence. This was the seventh volume of this publisher's "Woburn Books" series (there would ultimately be 18 titles) -- and it is the most sought-after today, since among the series' authors Lawrence is the one who remains the most popular. Rawdon, estranged from his wife, declares that never again will a woman sleep under his roof; yet he has an affair with a nearby married woman, who one night arrives at his door declaring that she has just left her husband and needs a roof over her head.~This is a fine copy; the dust jacket is nearly fine as well (the spine with minor browning and a tiny bit of wear at its extremities). Loosely inserted is an Elkin Mathews & Marrot postcard, to be filled out to receive catalogues of upcoming publications. This book is not easy to find in this condition. Roberts A40.
