London, Various, 1912-1959. Hardbacks. Lawrence's own copies of her books, each has been uniformly bound and signed by the author. Later titles are all first editions, early titles are mostly later impressions. A complete (?) set of her solo published works. Margery Lawrence is perhaps best known for her supernatural pieces and in particular her short story "The Haunted Saucepan," which was published in 1929 and became a popular radio play in the 1940s. Her work also explored the themes of female identity and the challenges faced by women in a patriarchal society. The 39 books are each numbered by ML, though her numbering has gone awry as #28 is numbered twice and her first book, Songs of Childhood is unnumbered, thus Residence Afresh is numbered 37th, but is actually 39th. Condition is near fine, the bindings are in nice shape with some books trimmed, and sometimes not perfectly. Bound in cloth with leather labels, some with wear. Publishers: Grant Richards, Hurst & Blackett, Jarrolds and Robert Hale.
