Notes

First edition, first impression, later state, with the luridness of certain passages toned down to appease circulating libraries: the first state was the original text, the second state with changes supplied with cancels, the third state with the changes integral, and the fourth state with further changes, which Roberts and Poplawski call for as cancels but are here integral, implying a fifth state. Lawrence began work on the novel in 1913, but left the draft in Germany and was unable to retrieve it until February 1920. He rewrote the work from March to May, and it was published in November in an edition of 4,000 copies. Loosely inserted is correspondence regarding the sale of D. H. Lawrence letters and first editions to the firm of Hamill & Barker in 1959, including this copy.
