Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, dustwrapper. (Dustwrapper faded on spine, slightly creased and rubbed at edges, causing a few very short tears.) A very good copy in the dustwrapper.

Dealer Notes
Second, revised edition, no. 702 of 1000 copies signed by the author. The work was first published in 1975 as The Portraits of T.E. Lawrence, in an edition of 200 copies, and this second edition was revised to incorporate subsequent scholarship. It provides a comprehensive, annotated catalogue of portraits of Lawrence by Augustus John, Eric Kennington, James McBey, Sir William Orpen, William Roberts, Sir William Rothenstein, Kathleen Scott, et al., virtually all of which are illustrated.

Although not marked as such, this copy was previously in the collection of the distinguished Lawrence scholar Jeremy Wilson, the editor of T.E. Lawrence’s Minorities (London, 1971), the author of the National Portrait Gallery catalogue T.E. Lawrence: Lawrence of Arabia (London, 1988) and the authoritative biography Lawrence of Arabia: The Authorised Biography of T.E. Lawrence (London, 1989), and the co-founder, with his wife Nicole, of the Castle Hill Press, which has published scholarly editions of works by Lawrence and the definitive series of Lawrence’s letters. In the acknowledgments Grosvenor thanks Wilson ‘for his thorough criticism of this volume’s predecessor’ (p. 143), and Wilson cited Grosvenor’s work in both the National Portrait Gallery catalogue and Lawrence of Arabia.
