      Florence: Privately printed, 1928. Early printing, a pirated edition. Tall 8vo, original black moire pattered cloth with a paper label on the spine printed in red and black. 365. A pleasing copy, the black cloth a bit mellowed on the spine, a touch of expected shelving. This pirated edition was printed just shortly after the first edition and is nearly identical in format to the true first. These unauthorized pirated editions that followed the printing of the first edition would induce Lawrence in 1929 to write the essay "My Skirmish With Jolly Roger," A tirade against the numerous pirated editions of his book, the bookshops that discretely distributed them and, incidentally, against those who suggested he should issue an expurgated edition. It was not until 1960 that Penguin Books in London took on the risk of publishing an authorized edition in full and they were consequently prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act 1959. The later acquittal proved a victory for not only the eminent authors who appeared as witnesses at the celebrated trial (including E.M. Forster, R. Hoggart, and H. Gardner) and Penguin Books, but for writing and publishing in general.

        The Philip Lehman Collection New York: Painting

      Calmann-Levy, Paris 1928 - Book. Elephant Folio - over 15. No 215 of 300 limitation, this being, with copies numbered 201 to 300 the more exclusive, with prints on velin d'Arches and mould-made paper with Philip Lehman's watermark specially manufactured by the Papeteries d'Arches (Vosges) . 105 plates, each measuring 19 by 15 inches, or 49 by 38 cm, all on a very heavy stock of paper, and each accompanied by tissue guard and a separate text page. Text pages with name of painting and artist on one side, text explanation, bibliographical reference on other. This collection formed the core of the Robert Lehman Collection donated to the Metropolitan Museum in 1969, today housed in its own wing of the museum. Vellum spine over vellum-colored cloth (or what might be a thinner vellum pasted to board). Gilt marbled endpapers, resembling a cross-section of a slab of granite. Large fox marks on blank preliminary page and title page, as well as final blank page. A lot of such foxing on a few of the table of contents pages and one page introduction by Robert Lehman. Afterward only occasional foxing, but such fox marks as there are tend to be splotchy. Most pages clean or essentially clean -- light foxing in foreedges sometimes diffused into page edge. All plates are attractive, and tissue guards are all intact, a few with creases resulting undoubtedly from heaviness and subsequent unwieldiness of book. Foxing as described is only issue with this extravagant production of a book, and but for it, the book would be deemed in fine condition. Still near fine. The book weighs about 22 pounds and so extra postage will be necessary. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The story deals with a British cavalry patrol in the Mesopotamian Desert during World War I. A shot rings out and the leader, an officer, falls dead from his horse. Filmed as THE LOST PATROL in 1934 by John Ford, and starred Victor McLaglen, Boris Karloff, Wallace Ford, Reginald Denny, Alan Hale, and others in the cast. An exceptional copy of a scarce book, and considered rare in the dust jacket. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Harper & Brothers, New York 1928 - A fine, fresh copy in like dust jacket. There is some dust soiling to rear cloth board, and the top rear corner is bumped. Otherwise, is is a clean, tight copy with no bookplates, no inscriptions, no address stamps or labels. The dust jacket is about as free of defects as one could ask for. No chips, no tears, and not price-clipped. A pretty spectacular copy of the book that became the basis of the famous John Ford film, THE LOST PATROL, which starred Victor McLaglen and Boris Karloff.
