Format: Hardcover
This edition of this extraordinary work of literature is a travesty. It has not been proofread for typesetting errors, for textual errors, for anything, as far as I am able to tell. This edition SHOULD be unavailable; it is a shameful and cheap attempt to profit unjustly from an extraordinary literary achievement accomplished by someone else. I was shocked and saddened to see such shoddy work, and dismayed to see it on Amazon.

Format: Hardcover
As I pointed out elsewhere, this 1922 Oxford text of Seven Pillars of Wisdom, is Lawrence's privately printed (only 8 copies!) first published version, for the purpose of sending to various people involved in the Arab Revolt for their corrections and/or approval. As it is, without additional proofing, this version is of historical interest as Lawrence's relatively uncensored telling of what happened. If you are looking for a good read, use the 1935 edition or Lawrence's abridged version under the name "Revolt in the Desert."

I bought this book because I'm really interested in Lawrence's story.
As soon as I received it, I opened it and found an 8 size Arial letter, impossible to read. I've never seen a book with this font size.
Ridiculous.

Print is very small, maybe an 8 pitch. If you are looking for a bare bones reference, thi print may be for you. Otherwise, this is not a copy for read.

A great book and one of the best adventures that I have ever read. The only problem with this copy, the type face is extremely small and no easily read.
