"Lawrence had lavished the finest materials and spared no expense in publication of the 1926 Seven Pillars of Wisdom. In doing so costs for production of the book ballooned from his first estimate of £3000 to £13,000. In a letter of 26 March 1925 we find him contemplating selling first his library and then perhaps some of his property at Pole Hill, Chingford. He finally settled on an abridgment of Seven Pillars of Wisdom. This was undertaken in 1926 by Lawrence himself…Three impressions were soon sold out and two more quickly followed in a period of four months" (O'Brien, A100).
