LAWRENCE, D.H. (edited by Roy Spencer)

That Women Know Best

Santa Rosa, California Black Sparrow Press. 1994.

Limited edition, one of 750 paperback copies published for friends of Black Sparrow Press. 210x146mm. pp. 40. Original decorative wrappers, stapled. Very slight marking to lower cover but otherwise a near fine 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. We are selling 14 copies of this paperback version of That Women know best. They are all in the same condition as described here.
