A first edition, first printing published by Edward Arnold in 1924. Octavo (188 x 120mm), pp. 335, [3 (publisher’s advertisements)]. Some light spotting, heavier in prelims and later pages. A few ink marks, book block cracking at hinges, apparently caused in production. Original maroon cloth, upper board and spine lettered in black. (Light off-setting on free endpapers, spine faded, extremities lightly rubbed and bumped.) A very good copy.

This copy was previously in the collection of the distinguished Lawrence scholar Jeremy Wilson, the editor of T.E. Lawrence’s Minorities (London, 1971), and the author of the National Portrait Gallery catalogue T.E. Lawrence: Lawrence of Arabia (London, 1988) and the authoritative biography Lawrence of Arabia: The Authorised Biography of T.E. Lawrence (London, 1989). Jeremy Wilson was also the co-founder, with his wife Nicole, of the Castle Hill Press, which has published scholarly editions of works by Lawrence and the definitive series of Lawrence’s letters, including Lawrence’s Correspondence with E.M. Forster and F.L. Lucas.
