Hi,
Here are some words from the novel Lady Chatterley's Lover(para. 230) by Lawrence(the University of Adelaide,here):
She turned away, and on the instant she turned back to him saying: ‘Kiss me.’
He bent over her indistinguishable and kissed her on the left eye. She held her mouth and he softly kissed it, but at once drew away. He hated mouth kisses.
‘I’ll come tomorrow,’ she said, drawing away; ‘if I can,’ she added.

I suspect there is a misprint with the words in blue. It seems to be clearer:He bent over her, (and because she's) indistinguishable, and (he) kissed her on the left eye.
And the word "indistinguishable" is not an adverbial, nor a attribute, so it's a little strange in structure.
Am I right please?
Thank you in advance

    Thank you very much. Seems that only Chapter 10 has many defects. Luckily, I can check it with other online versions. The problem is sometimes I might miss the right versions.
