About This Item

The First UK printing published by Boriswood, London in 1935. The BOOK is in Very Good++ condition. Light pushing at the spine ends. Light toning and dustiness to the text-block. A small area of toning corresponding to the wrapper chipped area at the upper spine end. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The WRAPPER is in Very Good+ condition being slightly marked and rubbed and a little dusty in places. A little loss at the upper spine end and upper front spine fold. With the 'Book Guild' recommendation sticker on the front as issued. The wrapper looks striking in the removable brodart archival cover. T.E. Lawrence's name features on the front panel of the dustwrapper and most of the blurb quotes from his preface. The three-page Preface is in fact the letter Lawrence wrote to the publisher recommending publication but prophesying commercial failure thereby. Very Scarce. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
