About this Item: Collins, London, 1955. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition (first printing). 8vo. 448pp. Black buckram, lettered in gold at spine. With a portrait frontispiece, eleven photographs and three maps. A short crease to the corner of the first three leaves, but thereafter an exceptionally crisp and bright copy in non-price-clipped dust wrapper, just a little rubbed at extremities with several tiny slivers of loss. Aldington's controversial biography of T.E.Lawrence caused a scandal upon publication, claiming as it did that Lawrence was both illegitimate and homosexual. The book subsequently came to be regarded as a scathing attack upon the Lawrence myth, one from which Aldington's own reputation never fully recovered. Seller Inventory # BC14365

About this Item: Collins, London, 1955. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Three illustrations (maps), and 10 plates (including frontispiece.) (illustrator). 1st. 448 clean, unmarked pages; dj w/unclipped price, in mylar; Although not the earliest biography published about T. E. Lawrence (1888-1935), this one was perhaps the most controversial. The poet, novelist, and biographer Aldington (1892-1962) called this work an "enquiry" because it offers an exploration of Lawrence's psyche. Aldington begins with the revelation that Lawrence was really the son of a bigamist named Chapman, and finds in that fact the key to the "tortured soul" of his subject, and for the mixture of mystification and self-aggrandizement with which Lawrence constructed his own persona. The London "Times" called it "an admirable biography, honest in intention, affectionate in spirit, and generous in appreciation," but some admirers of Lawrence felt it defamed their hero. Size: 8 vo; 1.5 Pouinds. Seller Inventory # 060782
