It ranks alongside Seven Pillars of Wisdom as one of his finest literary achievements. And, like the subscribers' Seven Pillars, the first printing has become one of the most prized fine-press books of the 20th century. This volume brings together correspondence between Lawrence, Bruce Rogers, Wilfred Merton, Emery Walker, Geoffrey Cumberlege and others, to tell the story of the 1932 Bruce Rogers Odyssey, both as a text and a printed book’ (Prospectus).
