LAWRENCE, THOMAS EDWARD:
Seven Pillars of Wisdom, A Triumph. London, Jonathan Cape, 1935.
. Large 4to. Pp. 672. With four folding maps, 51 full page plates, of which 4 coloured and 3 facsimile manuscripts. 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.
