New York: Mitchell Kennerley, 1912. First U.S. edition. His second novel, drawing upon the tragic experiences of his friend, Helen Corke, whose relationship with a married man ended with his suicide. Lawrence worked from Corke's diary with her permission but urged her to publish her own novel on the affair -- which she did in 1933 as NEUTRAL GROUND. (Wikipedia) Light cover wear but otherwise a bright, near fine copy and scarce thus. Lacking the dust jacket.
