LAWRENCE, T. E.. Revolt in the desert.

Garden City, New York. Doubleday, Doran & Company, [1927]. First American trade edition, later impression.
8vo. xvi, [4], 335pp, [1]. With a portrait frontispiece, a further 15 plates, and a folding map. Original publisher's brick-red buckram, decorated and lettered in black, later printed dustwrapper. Very light shelf-wear, dustwrapper a trifle marked. Pictorial endpapers after a watercolour, hinges exposed, inked ownership inscription to half-title, else internally clean and crisp.
An early printing of the first American trade edition of T. E. Lawrence's abridgement of his Seven Pillars of Wisdom. Although the copyright page states 'First printing in America, March, 1927', this is a later impression, as it lacks the George H. Doran 'lozenge' on the verso of the title page.
