About this Item

First published edition, a very early impression just one month after the first. With numerous photos, drawings, and maps. Thick, royal 8vo, publisher’s original polished buckram lettered and decorated in gilt, upper cover with crossed swords motif in gilt. 672 pp. A handsome copy, the book and cloth quite fine. A PLEASING COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION OFFERED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC, EARLY IMPRESSION. T.E. Lawrence, in relating the history of his involvement in the Arab revolt against Ottoman rule during the First World War, produced a true literary classic. Winston Churchill said of the book, "[It] ranks with the greatest books ever written in the English language." Its fame was further secured by Hollywood: "Lawrence of Arabia," starring Peter O'Toole, was based upon the book. This is a splendid, handsome copy of an enduring masterpiece. A personal narrative of the revolt of Arab armies against the Turks during the First World War, SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM stands as a monument of modern literature and history. Bernard Shaw described the book as one of the greatest of our time. All earlier printings were private and done with very low limitations on the printing, thus they are now very scarce. This is the first edition that was printed for general circulation. Bookseller Inventory # 25379
