    I had no idea they were banning books like this. I just thought they were letting them go out of print. At any rate, modern books do seem exceptionally sanitized compared to the old ones.

    Is there any evidence it was banned? Much less "unbanned"?

    I googled for many pages and couldn't find any evidence of any government or school system or public library system banning it. The notion it is a "banned book" is repeated over and over and over again though. About a third of links call that notion into question. It doesn't seem like anyone has any information on the origin of that idea/rumor.
