London: Privately printed for Subscribers by P. R. Stephensen,, 1929. Octavo. Original cream pigskin, titles and decoration to front board and spine in brown and blue, top edge gilt. Housed in a quarter morocco solander box. Minor wear to base of the spine and corners; a very good copy. First edition, first impression, private issue, one of 50 copies only on japon bound in leather. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Aldous & Maria [Huxley] from D.H.L.": a superb association copy of this key title of Lawrence's later period. Many of the poems in Pansies were written during the winter of 1928–9, in the immediate aftermath of the storm of criticism aroused by the publication of Lady Chatterley's Lover. "A revived friendship with Aldous and Maria Huxley turned out to be one of the sustaining elements in these difficult years" (ODNB). The book appeared in several formats, the present example being the fullest and most limited version.
