THE MINT: A day-book of the R.A.F. Depot between August and December 1922 ...

London: Jonathan Cape, (1955). First edition. Published posthumously according to Lawrence's wishes. Following World War I, despite having previously held a senior rank, Lawrence disappeared from public view by enlisting in the Royal Air Force as 351087 Aircraftman Ross. THE MINT covers his initial training and part of his service, likening RAF training to a coin factory--the men are "The Raw Material" put through "the Mill' that mints them into soldiers. (Wikipedia). Fine in fine dust jacket, with both book and jacket showing only the barest wear.
