Descripción:

8vo. pp. [viii]+217. Preface by Edward Garnett. This novel, originally published at London in early 1929 by Jonathan Cape, was suppressed by legal action, ostensibly because of the use of expressions like 'bloody', 'balls' and 'poor little bugger'. (Speaking of expressions, the phrase a 'Sleeveless Errand' is synonymous with a Fool's Errand; according to the O.E.D., 'sleeveless errand was very common c1580–1700). The present edition was published at Paris from the Cape plates. Two years after this book was published, having acquited a taste for publishing, Jack Kahane founded the Obelisk Press. Cloth-backed boards. Binding fatigued as usual, and with some wear, and some foxing to the preliminaries, otherwise a quite good and serviceable copy. N° de ref. de la librería

Descripción Henry Babou & Jack Kahane, Paris, 1929. Hardcover. Condición: Good. No Jacket. The first Paris edition. 8vo. 217pp. Handsomely decorated paper-covered buckram, lettered in black at spine. A slightly dusty copy, preliminary leaves and page edges lightly spotted. Binding cracked in several places yet still sound. A good, bright copy of an influential publication, alas missing the scarce wrapper. 'Sleeveless Errand' was originally published in London by Eric Partridge in early 1929. That edition was swiftly suppressed by the authorities for its 'verbal obscenities' and almost all copies confiscated and destroyed. Encouraged by the strong recommendation of Edward Garnett, Jack Kahane purchased the rights and within a month had published the book in Paris where it sold for a hundred francs a copy. Following this success Kahane founded his celebrated Obelisk Press. Pearson A1. Nº de ref. del artículo: BC10170
