T.E. Lawrence in Arabia and After by Liddell Hart.
LAWRENCE T.E. (1934.)
£6750.00 [First Edition]
Available to view at our Curzon Street shop.
Illustrated with various photographs and maps. First edition. 8vo., original red cloth. Uncut. London, Jonathan Cape.
Spine slightly tilted, otherwise in very good condition. With a fine inscription, dated the day of publication, from Lawrence to the author's young son. Below the printed half-title, which reads: 'T.E. Lawrence', Lawrence has added "in the hope that Adrian will 'give it best' 5.3.34 T.E. Shaw". Inscribed copies of Lawrence's own books are rare enough, but inscribed copies of books about him are rarer still. It is indeed a mark of the closeness of his collaboration with Liddell Hart: they went over the typescript of the book in great detail together before publication, and met frequently both before and after to discuss the military aspects of the Arab Revolt.
