REVOLT IN THE DESERT

Price: 750.00 USD

(London: Jonathan Cape, 1927), THE SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT WORK BY LAWRENCE. This is the first publicly issued text of SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM prepared by Lawrence after the private printing of that book and edited by him for the general trade. Jonathan Cape had planned a new edition of REVOLT IN THE DESERT to come out after Lawrence death, but Lawrence's estate permitted instead the printing of the trade edition of the full text of SEVEN PILLARS instead. Thus, the work in this form was obtainable for only a very brief period of time. First edition. With 16 black and white illustrations, and a large folding map at rear. 8vo, publisher's original tan polished buckram lettered in gilt on spine, in the scarce original dustjacket. 435, index pp. A very pleasing copy, very well preserved, clean and quite bright, the dustjacket with minor evidence age.
