(A): Incorrect. Incorrect modifier. "One of the earliest novels ..." needs to modify the novel, not "the publisher."
(B): Incorrect. Incorrect modifier as in (A). Additionally, "it" has no antecedent.
(C): Incorrect. Incorrect modifier as in (A) and (B). Also, the appositive is improperly formed: (C) lacks a comma after "Lover" to bracket off the nonessential clause.
(D): Correct. The first clause correctly modifies the novel (Lady Chatterley's Lover).
(E): Incorrect. (E) lacks a verb: The first clause correctly modifies Lady Chatterly's Lover, but the inclusion of "that" has the effect of creating a sentence fragment.
