Santa Rosa, California Black Sparrow Press. 1994.

First separate edition. Limited to 50 copies (of which this is number 26). Published for friends of Black Sparrow Press. 210x146mm. pp. 40. Handbound in boards by Earle Gray. Very slight shelfwear to extremities but otherwise a very good copy. Lawrence produced this work for the Daily Chronicle while waiting for Lady Chatterley's Lover to start selling. At a time when a bill giving women the vote was passing through Parliament, the British newspapers were very keen on this type of material. It was discovered by Roy Spencer in the files of the Daily Chronicle. The book reproduces in print the finished manuscript version, the variorum manuscript version and the newspaper version together with notes and short essays on the publishing history of the work.
