World War One
In the centenary of the Great War, Maggs Bros. Ltd. are pleased to offer the following catalogue. With a focus on manuscript diaries containing unpublished accounts, prisoner of war narratives and ephemera as well as a clutch of extremely scarce intelligence documents from the East African front, plus a selection of literature.
To Aqaba: T.E. Lawrence and the Arab Revolt
Most of this catalogue is from one important private collection, formed during the 1980s and 1990s, with a few relevant additions. To present a clear narrative of Lawrence’s life, we have broken with tradition and present everything in chronological order, with the exception of books from his library, which we list at the end.
E.W. Pinxit: The Graphic Art of Evelyn Waugh
Waugh’s initial ambition was to be an artist, and he produced many excellent illustrations for his own work and others, uniquely combining the then profoundly unfashionable Victorian aesthetic with that of the Jazz Age. We believe that this will be the first such exhibition devoted to this fascinating and important part of Waugh’s creative life.
