Review:

"It ranks with the greatest books ever written in the English language.As a narrative of war and adventure...it is unsurpassable" (Winston Churchill)

"Round this tent-pole of a military chronicle, T. E. has hung an unexampled fabric of portraits, descriptions, philosophies, emotions, adventures, dreams" (E.M. Forster)

"I am not much of a hero-worshipper but I could have followed T.E. Lawrence over the edge of the world" (John Buchan)

" Seven Pillars of Wisdom is one of the major statements about the fighting experience of the First World War" (Angus Calder)

"Emotional and mythic" ( Guardian)

From the Publisher:

Seven Pillars of Wisdom, The Complete 1922 Text
This is the first publication of Lawrence's earlier and fuller version of Seven Pillars, one third longer than the revised abridgement that he issued to subscribers in 1926, which is the text published for general circulation after his death. In addition to the two volumes of text there is a companion book of illustrations,152 pages, which includes the original colour portraits commissioned by Lawrence for the book, and a selection of his war photographs.

This first edition is limited to 752 sets. 80 sets have been bound in full goatskin, and are accompanied by a proof set of the Seven Pillars portraits, and a parallel-text showing intermediate and final texts of the Introduction.

A trade edition of the text is expected in 1999 or 2000.
