Book Description

FROM THE LIBRARY OF JEREMY WILSON, WHOSE EDITION OF MINORITIES IS DESCRIBED BY CLEMENTS AS ‘VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE OF THE INTRODUCTION BY J.M. WILSON’

Octavo (216 x 136mm), pp. 208. (A few light marks.) Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, dustwrapper. (Extremities lightly rubbed and bumped, light spotting on top edges, dustwrapper faded on the spine, creased at edges, and price-clipped.) A very good copy.

Provenance: Jeremy Michael Wilson (1944-2017, ownership signature on front free endpaper).
Dealer Notes
First American edition. The ‘first published attempt since [Elizabeth W. Duval’s T.E. Lawrence: A Bibliography (1938)] to provide a descriptive bibliography’ (O’Brien, p. 402), with annotated entries for works by and about Lawrence, supplemented by an appendix (‘Notes on the Writing and Publication of Seven Pillars of Wisdom’). T.E. Lawrence: A Reader’s Guide was first published in the United Kingdom in 1972 and this American edition was issued in February 1973.

The present 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 edition of Lawrence’s letters. Wilson’s edition of Minorities is described on pp. 39-41 with a lengthy note, which judges that ‘[t]his work is very important because of the introduction by J.M. Wilson which represents a very detailed analysis of Lawrence based on years of study’ (p. 40).
