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

Descripción The Scholartis Press, London, 1929. Hardcover. First Edition. First Continental edition of the author's first novel about the effects of wartime morality, an ill-fated venture seized upon by British censors on grounds of obscenity. "On February 21, 1929, Norah James, the advertising and publicity manager at Jonathan Cape's publishing house, was on her way to work when she passed a news placard that proclaimed "Woman's Novel Seized." James did not stop to buy a copy of the paper, but she would later discover that it was her first novel, Sleeveless Errand, selling papers that day. The night before, plain-clothes policemen had seized all copies of the book after Eric Partridge, the novel's publisher, unwillingly provided them with a list of "every bookseller to whom the book had been delivered" (Marshik, Celia. "Censoring War's Perversions in The Well of Loneliness and Sleeveless Errand." Journal of Modern Literature Vol.26, No.2 (2003)). The content of James's novel was condemned due to the promiscuous heterosexual behavior of the female protagonist and her set, and their use of "God," "Christ," and "Bloody Hell." "While most officials regarded sexual "deviance" during wartime as a necessary evil, they acknowledged that the majority of the public did not hold this view and that the perception of wartime sexual perversion could undermine national morale" (ibid.). A remarkable survival, as copies of the book were reportedly burned by police after their seizure. We find no copies for sale in the trade (Feb.2018), with 18 copies found in OCLC - of these, only 13 in U.S. institutions. One of 500 copies, of which 50 were signed. Octavo (19cm); black cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; yellow topstain; dustjacket; [viii],238,[2]pp. Forward lean, text edges slightly foxed, with a touch of offset from jacket flaps onto endpapers; Very Good+. Dustjacket is price-clipped, gently spine-sunned and a bit edgeworn, with a few tiny nicks and short tears, and eight clear tape mends on verso; Very Good. Nº de ref. del artículo: 38181
