London: Jonathan Cape, 1938. [History] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (24 x 17cm), pp.896. Illustrated with sixteen plates, and four maps, two folding. Usual corrected state of text. Elegantly bound in red half calf, gilt-lettered with twin navy morocco title labels, spine in six compartments with raised bands, red cloth sides. Original cloth spine bound in at rear. Near fine. E.M. Forster first attempted editing the letters for publication, but gave up the effort. It fell to Garnett to compile this 1938 edition, which is the major collection, rivalled and supplanted only by 'Home Letters of T.E. Lawrence and his Brothers', (1954). Two words were corrected during the run of the first impression and thus it appears in two states. Item #54388
