SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM. T. E. Lawrence. SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM.
London: Jonathan Cape Ltd. 1935. First edition thus -- the limited issue of the trade edition (preceded by two very limited editions in the 1920's). Number 701 of 750 numbered copies issued simultaneously with the general trade first edition. "Lawrence of Arabia's" autobiographical account of his experiences serving with rebel forces during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks as a British liaison officer from 1916 to 1918. Quarter tan pigskin over brown buckram boards; gilt stamped spine and front cover; top edge gilt and other edges untrimmed; marbled endpapers. Small abrasion to top-edge gilt otherwise very fine. Lacking the rare, plain brown paper dust jacket but in a slipcase which appears to be original as it is covered in a plain tan cloth very closely matching the color of the leather spine. For the record, Philip O'Brien in his Lawrence bibliography notes that the "jacket [is] rarely present" and calls for the book to be "boxed." If the slipcase present here is the box he speaks of, it would seem to be quite rare as we are unable to locate a copy in slipcase offered online or a picture of the book with one. The collector from whom we purchased this copy informed us he bought it 30 years ago from a Pennsylvania dealer, Dennis MacDonald, who was a Lawrence specialist. (We did not know this dealer who, according to the collector, died years ago.) Regardless of its history, this is a beautiful copy of the book and a quite pleasing slipcase which shows only very minor wear. We don’t think you could find a nicer copy.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. Harper Lee, foreword Nadiya Matuzova. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD.
Kiev: Dnipro Publishers, 1977. First English-language Ukranian edition.

[that] .... will forever belong in the treasure house of progressive American literature." Hear, hear. Colophon at rear refers to the USSR State Committee for Publishing, which controlled publishing, printing, the book trade and the ideological and political censorship of literature [Wikipedia]; however it is not immediately clear that the text of the book has been altered in anyway. 16mo; dark-pink paper boards printed in black, white and lime green on front, with illustration of a young, black man running; black cloth spine stamped in silver. Paperboards rubbed otherwise very good without dust jacket, presumably as issued. UKRANIAN EDITION.
