London: Jonathan Cape, 1955. FIRST EDITION, LIMITED ISSUE. Publisher's blue morocco-backed buckram boards. One of 2000 copies numbered in ink. Printed on fine laid paper with marbled endpapers, deckle edges, top edge gilt. Contents very clean, binding unmarked. A fine copy in original printed card slip-case (slightly bumped, toned to extremities). Lawrence's 'The Mint' is a memoir of his experiences as an ordinary aircraftman in the Royal Air Force; working from a notebook he kept while enlisted under the assumed name of John Ross, Lawrence wrote of the daily lives of fellow servicemen and about his feelings towards the RAF. During this period he participated in the development of rescue motorboats for downed aircraft. The book, with its sparse and sharp prose, is stylistically very different from 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom', and was published posthumously, edited by his brother Prof. A.W. Lawrence. Item #61339
