Dealer Notes
First edition. The Bodleian Library’s centenary exhibition was curated by the scholar A.J. Flavell, who was the co-author of The Corvinus Press: A History and Bibliography (Aldershot, 1994) and contributed notes to the Fleece Press edition of R.G. Sims’ The Sayings & Doings of T.E. Lawrence (Wakefield, 1994).

The extensive preface was written by T.E. Lawrence’s brother and literary executor A.W. Lawrence, each section of the exhibition is preceded by an introduction, and the volume closes with an essay on Lawrence’s reading as a reader at the Bodleian Library and the indices. The catalogue was designed by Trilokesh Mukherjee, who also designed the poster which accompanied the exhibition.

This copy was previously in the collection of the distinguished Lawrence scholar Jeremy Wilson, the editor of T.E. Lawrence’s Minorities (London, 1971), and 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). Jeremy Wilson was also 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.
