WEST, Rebecca. D.H. Lawrence. London : Martin Secker, 1930. First Printing.Pp. (6),5-,(2). Tall 8vo, brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine, to p edge gilt. Roberts & Poplawski, A Bibliography of D.H. Lawrence (3rd ed.)F17. "It is difficult to describe accurately the effect that D.H. Lawrence 's death had on London. If one says that the effect was tremendous, one makes a suggestion of a capital in mourning, which is ludicrous. Not even among his own caste was he honoured as he should have been. I myself realised with a shock how much of what I had always put down as Lawrence's persecution mania had a solid basis in fact, when I read obituaries in which not onlywas the homage due from the living to dead genius meanly denied, but the c ourtesy paid to any corpse was so far as possible withheld." - from p. 5. Gift inscription inked to flyleaf, else very good in lightly spine-chipped dust jacket. 60.00
