A classic of lesbian fiction, The Well of Loneliness was first published in Great Britain in 1928. It promptly because a matter of great controversy, and actions against the novel included a newspaper campaign and an obscenity trial. This book, published in the U.S. by Sun Dial Press, is an early U.S. publication, and bears the 1928 copyright date, but is probably from the late 1940's or early 1950's, as efforts to publish the book in the U.S were unsuccessful until that time. This 506-page book measures 8 x 6 inches.

This copy represents a very early version of an U.S. edition and is in solid condition. It's a great addition to a library and is a significant book on both literary and social levels.


The hard cover shows some shelf wear around the edges and bumping at the tips. The navy cover has Hall's signature in red on the front. The interior has no rips or tears and no inscriptions. The pages are rough-cut and there is a bit of soling around the edges, and some age-related yellowing to the pages. The spine is tight and the book is in overall solid condition.
