About this Item

First British edition of Lawrence's novella, also known as "The Escaped Cock." Originally printed in Forum magazine in 1928, and then in its first book form by Black Sun Press in Paris in 1929, this is a quintessentially Lawrentian tale in which Jesus, having survived crucifixion, discovers his sexual potency and joy in earthly life with the aid of a priestess of Isis. (About the alternative title, here; yes, there is a real bird involved.) The present example is => one of 2000 copies printed, with the type afterwards distributed. 8vo (25.5 cm, 10.1"). 97, [1] pp. Jackson, D.H. Lawrence Handbook, 24; Roberts A50c. Publisher's olive green cloth, front cover with gilt-stamped phoenix vignette, spine with gilt-stamped title; dust wrapper lacking, spine slightly sunned, spine extremities and lower corners rubbed. Free endpapers with offsetting(?) and front one with upper outer corner torn away; text gently age-toned, with small areas of staining to two pages. Showing signs of wear, this is yet a solid, attractive, and pleasing copy. Bookseller Inventory # 33546
