MINT: A day-book of the R A F Depot between August and December 1922 with later notes by 352087 A/C/ Ross
London: Jonathan Cape, 1955. First edition. Included with the book are a number of clippings or illustrations concerning T.E. Lawrence. Large 8vo, publisher's original blue cloth, gilt lettered on the spine, in the original printed dustjacket. 206 pp. A fine copy, the dustjacket in excellent condition and only slightly mellowed on the spine panel. FIRST EDITION IN THE DUSTJACKET. Lawrence made his way into the service on two occasions by using adopted names. In August 1927, writing from Karachi, he told Edward Garnett that he had arranged notes in sections and was copying them as a Christmas gift to Garnett. Lawrence told Garnett that he wrote the book tightly, "because our clothes are so tight, and our lives so tight in the service. There is no freedom of conduct at all." The typescript, made at Garnett's order from the actual manuscript, was revised by Lawrence just before his death and it is that text which the present work follows.
