The covers with double gilt fillets and tooled corners (very slightly bumped). This is the first edition that was printed for general circulation. Provenance:- R. T. Landale was a Major, British Embassy, Publicity Section & British diplomat serving in Egypt during the Second World War. He was prominent in the WW2 UK's Cairo Embassy publicity section until 1949, having created "The Landale Organisation" (q.v.) that dealt with developing contact lists with prominent Egyptians as a British propaganda tool. Landale's initiatives were enviable and US propagandists had nothing like the Landale Organisation. T.E. Lawrence's own Middle Eastern diplomacy and engagement with local influencers was clearly an inspiration to Landale (whose diplomatic career later progressed in the 1960's as he was promoted to be Consul of Brazil). O'Brien A042. A particularly handsome copy with an intriguing historical association. Bookseller Inventory # 5045
