Lot 339: Author: Lawrence, D. H. Title: The Escaped Cock. Place Published: Paris. Publisher: Black Sun Press. Date Published: 1929. Description: Illustrated with watercolor drawings by Lawrence. (4to) wrappers, publisher's slipcase. First Edition. One of 460 copies. The Escaped Cock is a short novel by D. H. Lawrence that was originally written in two parts and published in 1929. Lawrence wrote the first part in 1927 after visiting some Etruscan tombs with his friend Earl Brewster, a trip that encouraged the author to reflect upon death and myths of resurrection. The Escaped Cock was always Lawrence's preferred title for this tale but it has also been printed under the title The Man Who Died by some later publishers. Slipcase cracked, dust wrapper torn, faint spot front cover; very good.
