CARTER (Frederick). LAWRENCE (D.H.) ~ D.H. Lawrence and the Body Mystical.
Frontispiece portrait of D.H. Lawrence by the artist Frederick Carter and dated 1932, printed on Japanese vellum. 8vo., original black cloth backed pictorial boards with Pegasus and Eros in black riding past a gilt sun on upper cover, lettering in black, spine very slightly faded, otherwise a very good copy.
Frederick Carter, the mystic, writer and artist was a friend of D.H. Lawrence and this essay and portrait is his contribution to the truth behind the man. Lawrence had himself contributed an introduction to Carter’s 1929 book Dragon of Revelation as he had been interested in Carter’s theory of the symbols in the Revelation of St. John the Divine, and this introduction was to be his last published work before his death.
