Collection of British and American Authors, vol. 5151. Published the same year as Heinemann’s first British edition. Tauchnitz also published Hall’s The Unlit Lamp (1931), but not – because of its withdrawal by Jonathan Cape – her scandalous The Well of Loneliness. ‘Dedicated to Our Three Selves’ and with a Forenote by Hall, which draws comparisons between Stephen Gordon’s childhood and celebrating ‘the noble and selfless work done by hundreds of sexually inverted women during the Great War.’
