Lot 341: Author: Lawrence, D. H. Title: Sun. Being the Unexpurgated Version of this Story. . Place Published: No place. Publisher: Privately Printed. Date Published: 1929. Description: 44 pp. (8vo) original cloth-backed patterned boards. No. 102 of 500 copies. First American (pirated) Edition. This slightly salacious tale was first published in expurgated form in London in 1926 and collected in The Woman Who Rode Away. The unexpurgated version was first published by the Black Sun Press in Paris in 1928 and the present text lifted from that. Roberts avers that no copies were numbered, but he errs. Roberts, "Appendix II: Other Spurious Works": I. Light wear, bookplate on rear pastedown; very good.
