Profusely illustrated with photographs by the author on glossy plates and with a map and facsimile diary page. 8vo, publisher's original tan buckram lettered in gilt on spine, in the original printed dustjacket. xii, 291 pp. An extremely handsome copy, the very scarce original dustjacket is very fresh, complete, clean and beautifully preserved; the tan cloth also in fine state of preservation. VERY FINE FIRST EDITION IN DUSTJACKET, NOW QUITE SCARCE. A volume of Lawrence's previously uncollected writings, edited by his youngest brother and literary executor. It includes the suppressed chapter of Seven Pillars, a note on Kennington's Arab portraits and other important essays. The second part contains over 100 photographs taken by Lawrence during the Revolt in the Desert. There is very good material here on Lawrence's pre-war tour of Ottoman Syria, during which he traveled 1000 miles on foot undertaking archaeological field research of ancient military architecture, At the end of his forward, A. W. Lawrence states, "This volume comprises practically all the authors miscellaneous writings, with the exception of Crusader Castles. I hope that essay, already printed as a personal document in a limited edition, will eventually be reissued as a work of scholarship, with annotations and additional matter by several authorities. There remains nothing else which I intend to place before the general public.
