Revolt in the Desert
New York: George H. Doran Company,, 1927. Quarto. Original blue cloth, brown leather spine label lettered in gilt, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, dark blue endpapers. With the original blue-grey card slipcase. Coloured portrait frontispiece, 10 coloured plates, 7 black and white plates, one folding map at the end. Slipcase patchily sunned and a little worn at extremities, front inner joint partially split but sound. A very good copy, largely unopened. First US edition, large paper issue of 250 copies (this copy unnumbered). The costs for production of the 1926 Seven Pillars of Wisdom had ballooned to such an extent that Lawrence was contemplating selling either his library or some of his property to clear the debt. Eventually he settled on the publication of an abridgement, undertaken in 1926 by Lawrence himself with the help of some of his fellow servicemen, an earlier attempt by Edward Garnett having been set aside. Published in March 1927 in Great Britain and America, in both limited and trade issues, three impressions were soon sold out and two more quickly added.
