Third edition.Cambridge, printed for Anne Ockley, by permission of Henry Lintot, 1757. 2 volumes. 8vo. With folding engraved plate. Contemporary calf. Rebacked, using the original spine-labels and new brown endpapers.

      ESTC T134350; Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 98; for background information: Arberry, "The pioneer: Simon Ockley", in: Arberry (ed.) Oriental Essays (1997), pp. 11-47. Third edition of Ockley's most famous work, presenting Islamic history from 632 to 705, based on Arabic sources. "One of the most important steps in the introduction of Arab culture to Europe was the decision to use Islamic sources in order to write a history of the Arabs. This step was taken by Simon Ockley. It is based mainly on a manuscript in Oxford [Bodleian Library] wrongly attributed to the historian of the eighth century, al-Waqidi, but in fact composed at the time of the Crusades. Ockley accepted al-Waqidi's authorship, but was also acquainted with other historians such as Ibn Duqmaq, Ibn Abd Rabbah, al-Suyuti and Abu al-Fida" (Hamilton).It was first published in one volume in 1708 as The conquest of Syria, Persia, and Aegypt by the Saracens, dealing with Islamic history under the first three caliphs. Ten years later Ockley published a continuation entitled The history of the Saracens. The present edition was augmented with a Life of Mahomet, sometimes ascribed to Roger Long, but most likely written by Leonard Chappelow. With a 1914 bookplate on pastedown with the owner's monogram "HJK", the motto "semper fidelis" and an open book with "Poles 1913". Some minor browning and in 1 leaf a marginal tear, but still in good condition. The binding is rebacked as noted, but otherwise good.

The handmade box is by artist Kannex Fung and features heavily textured handmade papers and a small wooden picket fence that becomes a stockade when the box is fully closed. A beautiful, fine-press production. Although Billy Ray, Brown's son, has had persistent bad luck with cattle, in this non-fiction essay featuring dead calves, misbehaving bulls, rampaging coyotes and dilapidated fences, both father and son remain optimistic: "Billy Ray's farm does not yet exist on an earthly plane," writes Brown, but "on Billy Ray's farm there will be total harmony, wooden fence rows straight as a plumb line, clean, with no weeds, no rusted barbed wire." Later collected under the same title in 2001. His first work of nonfiction since his acclaimed ON FIRE. Fine in fine box. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Autograph manuscript prose fragment of 20 lines, "How can there be any short cuts?"

      N.p., n.d. (ca 1940s). Brief but powerful passage on originality in art, possibly quoting a published Miller work (but if so, not identified by us). The paragraph begins, "How can there be any short cuts?," and concludes with a statement that very clearly sums up Miller's attitude toward literature and his own artistic production: "...The more unique, the more universal is the work. The truly unique always makes itself understood. It is not our uniqueness, our individuality, that prevents us from being accepted - it is our failure to be so. We too easily compromise." Undated, but based on ink and paper, likely 1930s-50s. Provenance uncertain, but from a search of auction records it does not appear that this item was part of the massive Pacific Book Auctions sell-off of Miller manuscript materials in 1997-9. Twenty-line manuscript, in ink, on recto of single sheet of card-stock. Paper slightly browned and worn at corners; handwriting still bold and clear; unsigned, but in Miller's easily identifiable hand; Very Good.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom: a triumph, the complete 1922 'Oxford' text, three volume limited and numbered edition of 1997

      Salisbury, England: Castle Hill Press, 1997. Hardcover. This is the three-volume handsome first Castle Hill Press limited edition of the full 1922 "Oxford" text, set #573 of 752 total and 650 copies issued thus. This edition marks the first time that Lawrence's full text was made available to the public since its original circulation to a select few in 1922. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he spent the rest of his short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. This first draft was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing by Lawrence. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was carefully circulated to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. Finally, in 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers' Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence far more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged and titled Revolt in the Desert. It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence's death, that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public. However, few people know that the text released to the world as "Complete and Unabridged" in 1935 and which has become so famous is, in fact, a significantly abridged version. The fuller 1922 "Oxford Text" - a third longer - would not be published in an edition available to the public until this 1997 edition. Castle Hill Press took this text from the manuscript in the Bodleian Library and T.E. Lawrence's annotated copy of the 1922 Oxford Times printing. Castle Hill first published a three-volume limited edition of 752 sets of this Oxford Text. Of these, 650 sets were issued thus. The production value is excellent and aesthetically appealing. The large volumes measure 11.25 x 9 inches. The two text volumes are printed on acid-free stock and bound in quarter cream cloth and grey paper-covered boards with green leather spine labels, head and foot bands, green top edge stain, and green endpapers. The Volume I rear pastedown features a pocket bearing two folding, color maps. The third volume contains Illustrations, featuring 41 full-page Seven Pillars portraits (26 in full color as in the 1926 Subscriber's edition) as well as 127 war photographs, mainly from the collection Lawrence formed and presented to the Imperial War Museum. The Illustrations volume is bound in full cream cloth with illustrated endpapers. All three volumes are issued in uniform dust jackets evocative of the original 1935 British trade edition of the shorter text and housed in a dark red cloth slipcase. This set is in fine condition in near fine dust jackets. The volumes appear pristine, Volume II hand numbered "573" by the publisher. The dust jackets are complete with only light wear and fractional closed tears at the spine ends and a few extremities. The dust jackets are now protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers. The set includes the original January 1998 purchase receipt. Bibliographic reference: O'Brien A034a.
