by The Palestine News."

Some of the dispatches written by T. E. Lawrence
[of Arabia}. A publication of historical importance.

Green cloth leather corners. Slight spine loss at top. Minor spotting on first couple pages only - age toning which is expected on a volume such as this.

Frontispiece portrait of Gen. Sir Edmund Allenby.
113 pages. Plus 56 colored maps and accompanying text illustrating the operations.
For completeness 2 expedition postcards of Leslie Tebitt included.

Official history of the British campaign in Palestine and Syria, leading to the capture of Jerusalem and Damascus. T.E. Lawrence's contributions to this volume, reporting on the 'Sherifian Co-operation' and the progress of the Arab Revolt, appear at the text accompanying plates 49 to 53 at the back of the volume.

Lawrence is also mentioned by name within the text, opposite plate 48 line 19 and opposite plate 51 line 25. He would later and most famously tell the full tale of his role and perspective in the Arab revolt in "Seven Pillars of Wisdom.
