NORAH C.JAMES - Sleeveless Errand. A novel. With a preface by Edward Garnett.

Henry Babou & Jack Kahane, Paris, 1929. Hardcover. 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. Good/No Jacket.
