First edition which is a record of the letters and notes that passed between Lawrence and his two authorized biographers, as they compiled their books.
“These volumes are remarkable documents showing Lawrence’s intimate work with two of his biographers. The letters, manuscript commentary and corrections, reveal the nature of information Lawrence supplied and the interpretation he allowed the authors to derive from it. These volumes expose a process of biographical writing that is rarely documented.” [O’Brein p.176].
