T. E. Lawrence Letters, Volume VI
Castle Hill Press, 2014
ABOUT THIS BOOK
This volume is one of the largest in the T E. Lawrence Letters series, containing over 200 letters. At the core of the collection is a series of significant relationships that Lawrence developed with other writers. These are exchanges where for some reason an initial contact developed a warmth that went further than mere acquaintance. Some of the exchanges are substantial - for example, the correspondences with C.M. Doughty, Frederic Manning, and Siegfried Sassoon. We have also included a number of shorter exchanges which seemed to us to belong in this volume.
The letters are engaging and interesting in many ways. From a biographical standpoint, some are among the most important that survive.
The writers represented are Maurice Baring, Laurence Binyon, Edmund Blunden, John Brophy, Noël Coward, C. Day Lewis, Charles M. Doughty, Harley Granville-Barker, James Hanley, Frederic Manning, Herbert Read, Siegfried Sassoon, H.M. Tomlinson, H.G. Wells, and W. B. Yeats.
In parallel with this volume we are working on a collection of Lawrence's correspondences with bookmen, and his correspondence with Edward and David Garnett.

Some opinions of our work:
Considering the tastefulness of the physical design of the Castle Hill volumes - which undoubtedly would have pleased Lawrence, who was a devotee of William Morris's idea of 'the book beautiful' - and the spare tastefulness of their editing, and especially their making available important but otherwise hard-to-access texts, this is a project for which Lawrence scholars will indeed be grateful now and in years to come. [Professor Stephen E. Tabachnick, reviewing Castle Hill Press books in English Literature in Transition]
. . . I couldn't be more pleased. The attention to detail, and conception of this edition, are wonderful . . .
I cannot praise too highly the quality of the production, with exceptional clarity and beauty of print, the erudition of editing, and the excellent on-line service. Important correspondence in beautiful books - the perfect combination.
. . .Excellence in research and editing, and magnificently produced books in superb bindings. Last but not least, efficient and friendly service, with books posted in rock solid packaging.
. . . These books are a pleasure to own and read . . .. . . a quite invaluable job in publishing (very beautifully . . .) many of the writings of TEL which hitherto have been available only in manuscript form in museums, libraries or private collections, or in out-of-print books which are very hard to obtain.
An excellent set of publications that are beautifully edited and produced. A wonderful addition to my library and to any library.
