T. E. Lawrence's Works and Correspondence

A scholarly fine-press edition


The Castle Hill Press edition of T.E. Lawrence's works and correspondence is published on subscription. It includes many writings not published elsewhere and aims to meet the needs of researchers and others who are seriously interested in aspects of Lawrence's life. These are readers who require reliable, well indexed texts, and who appreciate authoritative yet restrained editorial commentary that, for example, seeks to provide context where letters would otherwise lose meaning.

Such editions are impossible without a firm editorial policy. That was developed at the outset by Jeremy Wilson (Lawrence's authorised biographer) and his wife and co-editor Nicole. The challenge for an editor is to provide enough collateral information, but not too much. We are constantly tempted to tell readers more about allusions to people or events that we have researched and found interesting. Yet, without deliberate restraint, the editorial matter can swamp the content, obscuring the subtleties in letters that may be the only first-hand evidence we have about a personal relationship.

We also feel that our responsibility is to present historians with the raw material for analysis, not to pass judgments of our own. Numerous passages in letters throw interesting light on Lawrence's activities, values and attitudes. It is often tempting to point that out, but we usually print them without comment. What is obvious to us will surely be obvious to other readers as well.

When we issued the first Letters series volume in 2000 we could only do our best, and hope others would like it enough to make the edition viable. Happily, the series is still running, sixteen years (and eleven letters-volumes) later.
