LAWRENCE T.E. (1935.)

£1500.00 

Available to view at our Curzon Street shop.

With illustrations and maps. First trade edition (i.e. third English edition), fifth impression. 4to., original green hard grained morocco. T.e.g, others uncut. London, Jonathan Cape.

A little wear to the extremities of the binding, but an excellent copy of this unrecorded variant. The fifth impression was the first to be printed at Cambridge as well as Oxford, and exists in a surprising multiplicity of states. The issue known as "pall bearers' copies" is well known, but there was also the current issue of this fifth impression, found in blue, green and red morocco.
