About this Item

FIRST TRADE EDITION in extremely rare original dust jacket; preceded by the scarce privately-printed New York limited edition of 1920. "In spite of what he feared would be the fate of his fiction after The Rainbow, in spring 1916 he started again on the ‘Sisters’ material; after an enormous creative effort in which he wrote the whole book twice he had finished the first version of Women in Love by November 1916. But it was rejected by every publisher who saw it; the fact that it contained recognizable re-creations of several people (including Russell, Heseltine, and the Morrells) did not help; nor did its vivid portrayal of what one publisher's reader called ‘the writer's expressions of antipathy to England and the forms of English civilisation’. To Lawrence it was a novel in which ‘I have knocked the first loop-hole in the prison where we are all shut up’ (Letters, 2.663), but it would not be published for another four years" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography).Octavo, original brown cloth, original dust jacket. Decorative bookplate of Montgomery Evans II on front pastedown. Book near-fine, with a little toning to text (as usual); dust jacket with toning to spine, chipping to spine edges and corners including an approximately 1x.75 in chip to top corner of rear panel; tape repairs to verso.
