The Rainbow

London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1915. First edition. One of 1250 copies (429 of which were destroyed for "obscenity"). A copy that is very Nearly Fine with the spine a bit darkened and faint tape ghosts on the end papers. Housed in a custom slipcase.

Originally conceived as the first part to Lawrence's more popular, "Women in Love," the publisher released the two novels separately to avoid tainting "Women in Love" with the scandal of the obscenity charges brought against "The Rainbow."
