1955 The Mint A Day Book of the R.A.F Depot Between August and December 1922 With Later Notes
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, With Dustwrapper
The first trade edition of this work. With original unclipped dustwrapper. At the time of Lawrence's death this work was left unpublished. It is a memoir of his time as an enlisted man and Lawrence wanted it to be published following his death due to the people mentioned in the work. The work was edited by Lawrence's brother who ensured that new names were used for people in passages that may have caused distress. This work is notable for its sharp observation and the insight it gives into Lawrence as a person. The Mint is set during a period when Lawrence disappeared from public view and entered the RAF under an assumed name, 352087 Aircraftman Ross.
In a full cloth binding with original dustwrapper. Externally, smart with fading to the spine and extremities. A few light spots to the front board. Dustwrapper is smart with sunning to the edges and spine. Small chips to the head and tail of spine to the wrap. Handling marks to the wraps. Gift inscription dated '1955' to the recto of front endpaper. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright. Scattered spots to endpapers. Otherwise, pages are very clean.
