What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Folding Maps, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

The letters written by T. E. Lawrence from his youth until his death, detailing his life, experiences and development. This collection is considered to be the most complete and comprehensive of the letters of T.E. Lawrence. 

T.E. Lawrence was a British archaeologist, army officer, diplomat and writer, mostly known for his role in the Arab Revolt (1916-18) and the Sinai Palestine Campaign (1915-1918) against the Ottoman Empire. He was very significant in the development of strategies as well as the liaison with British army forces. This work covers Lawrence's whole career, from when he was a boy with an interest for archaeology, until his death in 1935, in his own words through letters and previously unpublished documents and reports.

The first edition, second impression of this work with the corrected 'Balkan' to page 182 and the corrected 'T.E.S.' to page 495. 

Edited by David Garnett. 

Illustrated with sixteen plates and four maps, two of which are folding. Collated and complete.

Enclosed in the original unclipped dust wrapper.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, lovely, with just a touch of shelf wear and bumping to the head and tail of the spine.

A small closed tear to the tail of the front of the wrap and a small closed tear to the head of the front joint. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean.
