Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, "To Else from the Author". The recipient was Lawrence's sister-in-law Else von Richthofen (1874-1973), sister of his new wife Frieda, and one of the first female social scientists in Germany. Else and Lawrence first met in the early summer of 1912, just as The Trespasser was reaching publication. She had begun a career in teaching but, after obtaining a doctorate in economics at Heidelberg in 1901, she obtained a position as labour inspector in Karlsruhe. Lawrence kept up a regular correspondence with Else throughout the rest of his life. Presentation copies of Lawrence's early books are rare.
