Beschreibung

Of a total planned edition of 702 copies, only about 500 were ultimately issued, of which roughly 400 copies were bound thus, in medium brown cloth with blind rule front cover, gilt top edge and spine print, tan endpapers, head and foot bands, and a pale blue dust jacket. This copy is hand-numbered #273. This volume is part of the T.E. Lawrence Letters series published by Castle Hill Press, the premier editors and fine press publishers of material by and about T.E. Lawrence. From the publisher: "T. E. Lawrence was fascinated by the art of creative writing, and by creative writers. This fascination drew him into friendships with poets and novelists such as Robert Graves, Siegfried Sassoon, Thomas Hardy and E.M. Forster. When Lawrence read Henry Williamson's Tarka the Otter in 1928, he recognised that its author had extraordinary descriptive power: 'I put Williamson very high as a writer,' he later wrote. From this beginning grew a correspondence that lasted until Lawrence's death in 1935. The two kept one another’s letters, and the series printed here is largely complete. Until now, the principal published accounts of their relationship have been those by Williamson, notably his contribution to T. E. Lawrence by his Friends (1937), and his book Genius of Friendship (1941). In this volume, we are able to read both sides of the correspondence for the first time Williamson's letters provide a fascinating insight into a novelist's mind As Williamson became better established and more confident, he had less need of Lawrence's helpful criticisms and encouragement; or at any rate Lawrence felt that there was less that he could usefully offer. Gradually, their evident differences became more significant than the interest in the craft of writing that had drawn them together Williamson damaged the relationship in 1933 by including Lawrence, unasked, as a character called 'G.B. Everest' in The Gold Falcon – even quoting from his letters. Lawrence made light of it; but since he dreaded publicity he may well have feared that a closer friendship with such an unpredictable novelist would be a risk as long as he wished to remain in the ranks of the RAF. Later, he was nonplussed when Williamson told him about the complications that had arisen from extra-marital entanglements Despite these reservations, there really was an unusual quality in their relationship. Williamson is revealed here as a skillful and supremely observant writer, but nevertheless a man who was introspective, egocentric, insecure, and intensely lonely. Exactly the same words could be used to describe Lawrence, and the similarity that Williamson sensed was real. He was writing to someone he knew would understand." This is the Subscriber’s cloth binding, produced for long-term subscribers, enabling them to continue building Letters sets in the same binding-style. Condition is as-new, a pristine volume in a flawless dust jacket that is protected with a removable, archival quality clear cover. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 003650
