Regular price $13.00

This is a hardcover edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover by DH Lawrence. It was first published in the Vanguard Library in 1953. There are a few small tears on the dust jacket. The boards are tan and the binding is structurally sound. The pages show foxing. There aren't any obvious signs of marginalization, inscriptions, or dog-eared pages.


Lady Chatterley's Lover is a novel by English author D. H. Lawrence. First published privately in Italy in 1928, Penguin's decision to publish the original explicit text in 1960 led to perhaps the most famous trial in literary history. The prosecution famously asked "Would you wish for your wife or servants to read it?" Its eventual publication saw it sell in the hundreds of thousands and it helped to bring in the sexual revolution of the 1960s. If you are a collector of banned books, this is a must-have for any library.
