THE FOREST GIANT.

Translated from the French by J. H. Ross [T. E. Lawrence]. Illustrated with Woodcuts by Agnes Miller Parker. Pp. 160(last blank), frontispiece, plus 8 plates; green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, boards a trifle soiled, edges lightly worn, bottom fore-corners slightly bruised; fore and bottom edges uncut; the text block faintly browned, scattered light foxing; Jonathan Cape, London, 1935. Second U.K. edition. O'Brien A095. *Lacking the dust wrapper. 'By his own request Lawrence was given the French work Le Gigantesque to translate soon after his expulsion from the R.A.F. and re-enlistment in the Tank Corps in 1923. He appears to have been motivated both by a need for funds and by the wish to fill his free time.' [O'Brien p. 74]. In 1935, Cape published this edition, with illustrations by Agnes Miller Parker. It contains a new publisher's note and the author's dedication to Professor Simon Dupley, which Lawrence had included in his translation but which, at his own suggestion, had been omitted from the 1924 edition. Adrien Le Corbeau was a pseudonym of Romanian writer Rudolf Bernhardt (1886-1932). Item #153190
