London: Bellew Publishing, 1991.

First edition of this collection of Lawrence’s wartime reports, as first printed in the Intelligence journal Arab Bulletin. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Foreword by A. W. Lawrence. Edited and Introduced by Malcolm Brown. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket illustration by Francoise Eyraud. Jacket design by Eric Drewery.

This collection of Lawrence's wartime reports is an invaluable companion volume to Seven Pillars of Wisdom with the added bonus that it offers a self-portrait of Lawrence long before the Lowell Thomas publicity machine turned him into an international celebrity. Secret Despatches, in short, delivers a picture of the man before the myth, writing fluently, vividly and with a total command of his subject.
