Foreword and running commentary by H.S. Ede. First edition, one of 30 special copies from a total edition of 500. Small 4to., original full morocco in its original slipcase. London, Golden Cockerel Press.

Spine just faded, but otherwise a fine copy of the rare special issue, with well printed collotype facsimiles of five of the letters bound in at the rear. A delightful tribute to Lawrence from the art collector and curator Jim Ede whose acquaintance with Lawrence began with sight of a copy of the Subscribers' Edition "I had been aghast that so ugly a book should be produced" and developed into a deep epistolary friendship.
