Secret Despatches from Arabia. Published by Permission of the Foreign Office.
London: 1939. Nice copy of this numbered limited first edition from The Golden Cockerel Press. Cream boards with quarter Niger leather spine and gilt titles by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. The black leather is in excellent condition, but the cream boards are a little rubbed on the corners, and slightly soiled. Still attractive though. The end papers have stains where tape has been used (it seems to hold a previous cover). Otherwise the book is in very good clean condition. #458 / 1000 copies. Printed on Arnold's mould made paper. Top edge gilt. Frontis photograph of Lawrence. 173, , pp. 255 x 195 mm (10 x 7¾ inches).
