New York: Alfred A. Knopf, . First Edition With a 79-page introduction by D. H. Lawrence. The author, Maurice Magnus, met Lawrence in Italy after he had deserted the Legion. Flat broke but totally convinced of his higher class standing, Magnus attempted to live at a higher means, simply borrowing more money from his very tolerant friends until his debt caught up to him and he killed himself with the police outside his door. The introduction to this fascinating memoir is considered to be one of Lawrence's greatest works. Short tear to the head of the spine; light soiling to the rear cover. Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper (Item ID: 007487)
