[iilus. EGAN, Beresford] [Preface, STEPHENSEN, J.R.]

The Sink of Solitude

London: Hermes Press, 1928

4to, 30 unpaginated pp. Original yellow stiff paper wrappers, lettered in black to front panel. Spine missing, but binding sound, the wrappers just a little used.

First edition. With a preface by P.R. Stephensen.

A riotous satirical tirade prompted by the publication that year of Radclyffe Hall's The Well of Loneliness, its subsequent prosecution for obscenity, and the censorious bile its appearance prompted from Sunday Express editor James Douglas, Home Secretary William Joynson-Hicks, and many others. Not that the authors were huge fans of Radclyffe Hall's literary talents: 'O mundane Muse, of RADCLYFFE HALL |And how she wrote a story that should fall |On souls suburban like a ton of bricks...'.
