Partly with some minor foxing, some plates with discolouration and one plate with small tear. Contemporary full calf, expertly rebacked to style with a flat spine elaborated with gilt and red title label. A handsome copy of the first edition with a remarkable provenance.John Cam Hobhouse (1786-1869) known as Lord Broughton was a close friend of Lord Byron with whom he made this journey to Albania, Greece and Turkey, in particular to Janina (Ioannina). These letters include detailed descriptions of the places en route, as well as meetings with various characters, including the notorious Ali Pasha of Tepelena. The beautiful hand-coloured plates depict costumes, highlighted in gold, views and historical sites. According to Atabey, the plates were done from drawings by the British architect Charles Cockerell and the German landscape painter Jacob Linckh. They participated in an expedition in 1810 to the temples of Aphaia in Aegina and of Apollo Epicurius at Bassae. Atabey 584. Blackmer 821. Navari Greek Civilization, 330.

HUNTER, GEORGE W.:
Examples of the Various Turki Dialects. Turki Text with English Translation. Four parts in one volume. [Sianking, China Inland Mission, 1918].
. Small 4to. Pp. Title + pp. preface (ii) + pp. (i), 70; (i), 19; (i), 23; 8. With text on one side only, as issued sewn in Chinese fashion, in original wrappers. The general title is written in manuscript on recto of first blank leaf as issued. Damp stained throughout. A wormhole to back cover and last blank leaf. Comprises four parts: i. Qazaq Turki Text with English translation. ii. Tartar Turki Text with English translation. iii. Uz Bek Turki Text with English translation. iv. An Example of Stanbul Turkish [Head title]. George Hunter was one of the last great pioneer missionaries. He got to know Turkestan as no other Westerner at that time. He translated the Scriptures into dialects of remote tribes. We believe this work was only issued in a small number. "The coarse paper was made from local material, often from leaves of the desert iris, and the format was the usual style of Chinese book, with each sheet written on one side only and folded back to back ... George Hunter had succeeded in buying a second- or third- hand duplicating machine, and a skilled writer transcribed the Turki text on the waxed stencil sheet while Hunter wrote out the English translation below."

Publisher's quarter morocco on buckram covered boards, spine lettered in gilt, gilt vignette on upper cover, marbled endpapers. Upper edges gilt, others uncut. A few small scratches on upper cover, some spots to outer edges. Original dust jacket, with tears and spine partly gone. Housed in a specially made cloth box. First published edition, limited to 750 copies, of which this is no. 68. The famous autobiographical account by T.E. Lawrence ("Lawrence of Arabia") of his legendary part in the Arab rebellion against the Ottoman Turks between the years 1916-18. Lawrence did not believe the text would be of interest to the public in general and at first only allowed limited publications for friends (in 1922) and subscribers (in 1926). Lawrence was very involved in the production of the Seven Pillars. To finance the project he authorised Jonathan Cape to publish a heavily abridged and simplified version called "Revolt in the Desert" in 1927. The Seven Pillars is lavishly illustrated with photographic plates and portraits from sketches, and folding maps. The illustrators were the best British artists of the day: Wadsworth, Nash, Roberts, Blair Hughes-Stanton, Dobson, William Nicholson and others. Also included a copy of the Times from May 1935 with two pages of editorial about Lawrence, and testimonials from friends and colleagues including David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill. A handsome copy of this noted work, called by Churchill "one of the greatest books ever written in the English language". O'Brien A041.
