NotesFirst and only editions, presentation copies, each inscribed by Rogers to his friend and confidante Henry L. Bullen, the librarian of the Typographic Library and Museum of the American Type Founders Company. The First volume, limited to 200 copies only, was printed by William Edwin Rudge from type set by Bertha M. Goudy; the second set and printed by Rogers himself in an edition of 300 copies only. "This short collection of letters was issued privately Many of the copies are signed by Rogers who apparently gave them as gifts. The letters are for the most part those written by Lawrence during the period he was translating The Odyssey and are of major importance in relation to that work Most of the letters are not contained in The Letters of T. E. Lawrence" (O'Brien).
2 volumes, octavo. Original brown cloth, title gilt to spines.
Spines perhaps a touch sunned, front endpapers of both a little discoloured from clippings no longer present, small marks to front pastedowns where labels removed, but overall very good indeed.
