Item Description: Penguin Designer Classic, 2006. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition... IMMACULATE NEW copy of this supreme collectable in the Penguin Classic Anniversary Editions. This remarkable and very beautiful edition has become the most sought after edition in the series by far. Sir Paul Smith designed the book, and chose to cover the board binding in delicate embroidered silk, which features the flowers Lawrence mentions in the book. The silk has been used for every aspect of this gorgeous book; even the Penguin logo is embroidered in silk. This particular copy has a unique signed pictorial card from the great designer himself, which is loose laid on the title page. This really is a breathtaking production in every way, from its large format pages to its silk covering over the top of the binding boards, all the way to the heavy lucite case that was especially designed for the book, and which has a subtle explanatory text silk screened on to it, and which I found too difficult to photograph. For once, the hype is well worth the result. Truly, this is a classic. 0.0 0.0 0.0. Signed by Illustrator(s). Bookseller Inventory # 003790

Item Description: Florence: Privately Printed [by the Tipografia Giuntina], 1928, 1928. A Fine First Edition of "Lady Chatterley's Lover" Complete with the Rare Dust Jacket and the Very Rare Original Glassine WrapperLaid in is a Signed Postcard from Lawrence to his Sister-in-LawLAWRENCE, D.H. Lady Chatterley's Lover. [Florence]: Privately Printed [by the Tipografia Giuntina], 1928.First edition. Limited to 1,000 numbered copies, (this being copy number 596) signed by the author. Octavo. [4], 365, [3, blank] pp.Original mulberry boards with printed paper spine label. Front cover printed in black with the Lawrence phoenix. An exceptionally fine copy, completely unopened. In the original plain yellow dust jacket (jacket with a few a little worn and stained at spine extremities. Complete with the exceptionally scarce original glassine wrapper, a little worn and with some staining on spine. Housed in a quarter black morocco clamshell case.This is the finest copy of this book that we have ever seen. The original pale yellow dust jacket is unprinted, little more than a piece of wrapping paper, to both camouflage a "dirty" book and protect it during shipping, and the book underneath is so perfect as to leave little doubt that it was set aside untouched and unread, and covered with this dustjacket for all of its life. The original glassine wrapper has protected the paper dust jacket for all of it's life.Laid in is a postcard (written in German) from D.H. Lawrence, addressed to the Frau Baronin von Richthofen. There were two Baronin von Richthofens. One was Lawrence's wife Frieda and the other was her sister Else. Since Frieda was with Lawrence on this trip, the recipient was probably Else. In the postcard, Lawrence says he is traveling this morning to El Paso and is sending the pictures of the ranch today. The ranch was the Taos property, now known as the D.H. Lawrence Ranch, given to the Lawrence's by Mabel Dodge Luhan and was the place to which Frieda retired after Lawrence's death. The postcard is signed "DHL", is dated "Santa Fe. 18 Okt" and is postmarked October 18th, 1924.Lady Chatterley's Lover is tripled with Ulysses and Tropic of Cancer as the seminal suppressed books from the first half of the twentieth century.Roberts A42a."No account of Lady Chatterley's Lover can be complete without some notice of the most memorable review of the novel by Ed Zern, which appeared in Field and Stream for November 1959, p. 142 (see also The D. H. Lawrence Review 8 (Fall 1975) 376-377). It is short and reproduced here for the benefit of those who do not have access to a copy. The review was written as the result of a request from the editor, Hugh Grey, that Mr. Zern choose an outdoor book for review as a "sort of test case"."Although written many years ago, Lady Chatterley's Lover has just been reissued by the Grove Press, and this fictional account of the day-to-day life of an English gamekeeper is still of considerable interest to outdoor minded readers, as it contains many passages on pheasant raising, the apprehending of poachers, ways to control vermin, and other chores and duties of the professional gamekeeper. Unfortunately one is obliged to wade through many pages of extraneous material in order to discover and savor these sidelights on the management of a Midland shooting estate, and in this reviewer's opinion this book cannot take the place of J.R. Miller's Practical Gamekeeping."Hereafter, no Lawrence collection can be said to be complete without a copy of Miller's Practical Gamekeeping to place alongside Lady Chatterley's Lover!" (Warren Roberts, p. 152-153). Bookseller Inventory # 03102

Item Description: Paris: Privately printed [for the author by Edward Titus] 1929, 1929. Octavo. Original brown wrappers printed in black, printed paper label to spine. In a contemporary quarter red morocco chemise with marbled sides in a marbled slipcase bearing Titus's device of the Black Manikin. Front wrapper torn with loss, some minor wear to the spine. Very good. Second authorized edition: the so-called Author's Unabridged Popular Edition. The novel was initially published in an edition of 1,000 copies by the Orioli Press in Florence in 1928, and was almost immediately pirated by at least four different publishers. Lawrence had always intended to release a cheap version, and was spurred on to do so by the appearance of the unauthorized copies. In 1929 he approached Edward Titus and negotiated an edition to be sold at 60 francs, with a new introduction regarding the pirated printings entitled My Skirmish with Jolly Roger. This copy is inscribed by the author on the title page "To Edward W. Titus from D. H. Lawrence this first copy of our Lady of Paris. Forte dei Marmi, 26 June 1929". Accompanying this copy is a typed letter signed and with a single autograph correction from Lawrence to Titus dated April 5th, 1929 addressed from the Hotel de Versailles Boulevard Montparnasse Paris. This letter was to serve as the contract between the author and Titus for the publication of this edition. Lawrence outlines the agreed terms including the published price, number of copies to be printed, terms under which further printings could be done and details regarding the termination of the contract. Inscribed copies of Lady Chatterley's Lover in any printing are rare. We know of just one copy of the Florence edition and this copy of the Paris printing to have appeared for sale in the past 30 years. Bookseller Inventory # 78007
