My Life and Loves. Vol. I
Special Collections PR4759 H37 M9 1949
Paris: Obelisk Press Books; Les Editions du chêne
Frank Harris’s My Life and Loves was purchased to form part of the ‘modern’ contingent in the very successful ‘Banned Books’ exhibition in Special Collections in 2009. Privately printed in Paris in 1925, this particular edition was not allowed to be imported into England or the U.S.A. Often shipped in plain brown wrappers, it was, if discovered, summarily destroyed; having been judged indecent. John Sumner, zealous member of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, called it the ‘most obscene book published in the present century.’
