About this Item

"First Paris Edition" stated. White cloth with black spine lettering, over patterned-paper covered boards. A novel of "sophisticated London life" which was banned in England for obscenity. Edward Garnett, in the preface to this edition, points out that the British censors were apparently upset by some of the language used (for example, one character uses the term "bloody hell") as well as inappropriate suggestiveness (a man and woman lay together on a bed but only to talk). The novel was printed in the U.K. by Scholaris but virtually all copies were seized and destroyed. Jack Kahane, founder of the Obelisk Press, immediately published it in Paris. The Americans apparently had less of a problem with it as it was published in the U.S. by Morrow. Very good, light soiling to the spine strip and some wear to the edges of the boards. No dust jacket.
