D. H. Lawrence (Author)
(Book) Edition of 12 copies. 7 pages. ~25.5 cm (height).
Printed for Anthony and Jean Rota "in honour of the 80th birthday of George Lazarus Esq 22nd March 1984". George Lazarus was a collector of letters by D.H. Lawrence, and a very good customer of the booksellers Bertram Rota.
According to Steven Halliwell, the twelve in-series copies were printed on laid paper. However, the proof copy at hand was printed on Amatruda Amalfi (wove), and the printer's hand-written note does not mark this paper as being different to the one used for the twelve in-series copies.
This edition was not listed by Alan Anderson in his 1979-1991 bibliography. Whether this omission was deliberate is not known. When asked by George Sims in 1958 for his list of Likes & Dislikes, Alan Anderson listed D.H. Lawrence in his list of dislikes.
Printed on Amatruda Amalfi paper, and sewn in mustard-yellow card wrappers with printed paper label.
