FIRST EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT TEXT ON THE CRUSADER CASTLES AND THEIR IMPORTANCE BOTH STRATEGICALLY IN THE HISTORY OF MILITARY ARCHITECTURE. Lawrence wrote the volumes while still a student at Oxford. The work, submitted as his thesis earned him first-class honours. Volume I contains The Thesis, Volume II, The Letters.
