Women in Love (signed)


Item Description: Privately Printed, New York [but London, Martin Secker], 1920. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. First edition, UK issue being one of 50 numbered copies signed by the author. Martin Secker bought 50 sets of sheets from the unsigned American edition, and bound them very much in the Secker style, though the publisher's name does not appear anywhere in the book. The regular trade edition did not appear in England for another two years. Roberts A15b Bound in the publisher¿s brown cloth with gilt titles to the spine. Top edge of pages stained dark green. Housed in a well fitting 1/2 Brown Morocco Clamshell Box with full gilt spine. This book was at some point an ex-library copy in the least intrusive manner, thus few would consider that status much of a demerit. The spine has the faintest trace that there once was a number. On the title page there is in the center faint remains of a library number of which appears to have been partially removed but still showing some signs of its existence; this is quite inconspicuous. And finally cloth repairs have professionally been made to the spine and lower corner of the rear board, that can easily escape one's notice. From the beauty and rarity of this book.
