The Well of Loneliness, Hall, Radclyffe
5 Hall, Radclyffe The Well of Loneliness
Garden City, NY, Sun Dial Press, 1928, Hard Cover Fair No Jacket 
An early copy of this lesbian classic. Half inch chunk missing at top of spine; edge wear to cover; worn corners. "The Well of Loneliness is a 1928 lesbian novel by the British author Radclyffe Hall. It follows the life of Stephen Gordon, an Englishwoman from an upper-class family whose "sexual inversion" (homosexuality) is apparent from an early age. She finds love with Mary Llewellyn, whom she meets while serving as an ambulance driver in World War I, but their happiness together is marred by social isolation and rejection, which Hall depicts as having a debilitating effect on inverts. The novel portrays inversion as a natural, God-given state and makes an explicit plea: 'Give us also the right to our existence'." [Wikipedia] 137748
