Bound volumes of typed transcripts of letters from T.E. Lawrence, c.1910-1935

 Sub-Series
Many of the letters are annotated by A.W. Lawrence or Garnett and several have been edited by omitting sentences. The annotations do not always specify how large a section has been left out nor where the omissions occur. A large selection of these letters was reproduced in The Letters of T.E. Lawrence (London, 1938), edited by Garnett.

Custodial History

These volumes were created after Lawrence's death by his youngest brother A.W. Lawrence with the assistance of David Garnett. In 1935-8, they embarked upon a project to collect all existing Lawrence correspondence, by borrowing and transcribing original letters before returning the originals to their owners. The resultant typescripts were arranged alphabetically and bound together.
