KIRKUS REVIEW

D. H. Lawrence addicts -- students of contemporary literature -- people interested in bibliographical material on an important creative artist will find this of permanent interest and value. Here is a study of close to 200 manuscripts, made available through the courtesy of Frieda Lawrence. On each a systematic analysis is made, the manuscript described, previous publication indicated, the origin and development of the title traced, and a comparison made between text of original manuscript and the known version. Lawrence's diary appears here for the first time. In the controversial case of Lady Chatterley's Lover, Tedlock has studied the three versions...These are simply samples of the extensive research and scholarship that have gone into this study, intended chiefly for a somewhat eclectic audience. The rather abandoned foreword by Frieda Lawrence contrasts with the professional seriousness of the work. A beautiful piece of bookmaking.
