H.L. Tomlinson - All Our Yesterdays - T.E. LAWRENCE OWN COPY WORLD WAR I NOVEL
Near fine copy enclosed in a handsome morocco and cloth clamshell box. [LAWRENCE, T.E.]. TOMLINSON, H.L. All Our Yesterdays. London: Heinemann, 1930. First Edition. This copy belonged to T.E. Lawrence, with the Clouds Hill book label. This is the limited edition copy number 1019 of 1025 signed by H.L. Tomlinson (the last 25 were for Tomlinson's use). Very good plus copy enclosed in a handsome morocco and cloth clamshell box. In a February 19th, 1930 published letter to editor A.S. Frere, Lawrence remarked on his enthusiasm for Tomlinson selecting him for " entirely uncritical admiration, as man and nature and mind - and particularly pen...I am a pluralist, a whole-hogger, in all his words and works and 'All Our Yesterdays' is a big thing among them." A recorded letter to Lawrence, dated March 19th, 1930, noted that in All My Yesterdays, my ghosts had to be laid. I was thinking of you, often enough, when I was writing it. There is a notebook here with reflections from the 'Pillars'. I pondered that book of yours...There you were, once on a time, no doubt of it, involved in a mess you didn't make. The evil that others had done caught you, & you faced it for them - was crucified, if you like. That was I wanted to show...." A major piece of World War One Literature in an historic association copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
