The Rainbow

London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1915. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good, lacking the jacket. Blue-green buckram, toned at the spine, rubbed and slightly frayed at the edges, with gilt lettering on the spine, white ink library call at the foot. Square, bound with some reading wear, foxing at the endpapers, small bookplate from the Institute for Sex Research on the front endpaper, contemporaneous newspaper clipping about the book's suppression tipped-in on the verso of the half-title with related toning on the title page, vintage bookseller's catalog entry pasted on the verso of the rear endpaper. One of the rare copies that survived the book's suppression that took place just six weeks after its publication. Given the book's "obscene" nature, it's fitting this copy once belonged to the library at the Institute for Sex Research. Very Good. Item #7764
