  • Secret Despatches From Arabia – T.E. Lawrence

    Secret Despatches From Arabia – T.E. Lawrence

    A special production published with the permission of the Foreign Office, by The Golden Cockerel Press, London in 1939.

    Limited edition of 1,000 copies, Quarto, 174 pages printed on Arnold’s mould-made paper. Bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in quarter black morocco over cream cloth covered boards. Spine with raised bands lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt. Frontispiece of Lawrence in Arab dress. Slightest foxing as usual.

    A collection of Lawrence’s articles for the British Arab Bureau’s publication, the Arab Bulletin (1916-1918) containing most of Lawrence’s detailed reports of his activities in the field.

    In 1916 a select group of officials from England’s War, Foreign and Indian Offices set up an Araba Bureau in order to work out how best Britain’s future policy towards the Arabs could be coordinated. One of the Bureau’s first activities was to initiate a secret bulletin dealing with any political events in Turkey or elsewhere that affected the Arab movement. The idea originated with Lawrence and helped from the first issue. Later he sent the Arab Bureau many detailed reports of his field activities. Most of his reports are included in “Secret Despatches” … in addition there is “Syrian Cross Currents” which did not make its way into the bulletins and is taken from a manuscript on Arab Bureau paper.

    “The whole valley was full of shouting and rifle shots, and the roaring of camels”

    Sought after “Secret Despatches” … fundamental Lawrence of Arabia, finely bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe.
