Holograph manuscript
London, 1937. London, 1937. Holograph manuscript with corrections in the hand of Forster, 4 pages, with one additional page on verso of page 3 crossed out and abandoned as an early draft. With an autograph note signed and dated Feb. 13, 1937. Folded for mailing, paperclip residue to top edge of note and last page, overall VERY GOOD. Forster's forward for Alec CraigÆs 1937 publication ôThe Banned Books of Englandö (London: George Allen & Unwin, 1937). He approvingly discusses CraigÆs book and in the course of the essay mentions several notorious obscenity trials and banned books, including ôUlyssesö, Havenlock Ellis, the ôSexual Impulse case",ö and the ôuncertain justiceö implicit in censorship of this kind, using LawrenceÆs ôSeven Pillars of Wisdomö as an example of how ôsometimes a book gets through [the censors].ö
