The Rainbow
1915. First edition. 8vo., original blue cloth, lettered in gilt, housed in a buckram chemise, inside a pull-off box in green half morocco. London, Methuen. The Rainbow was famously banned in the UK after an obscenity trial only months after publication, owing to its explicit depiction of sex, having already been withdrawn from sale after vehemently hostile reviews. Half of the print run of a total of 2500 were subsequently destroyed, and the ban wasn?t be lifted until 1926. An exceedingly fine copy of this very rare book. Roberts, A Bibliography of D.H. Lawrence, A7. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Maggs Bros. Ltd ABA, ILAB, PBFA, BA [London, United Kingdom]
