Biography of T. E. Lawrence in Yiddish

Warsaw, 'Groszen Bibljotek', 1935

No author identified

Some years ago I came across this fragile and hitherto unrecorded pocket biography of Lawrence written in Yiddish. It is an original work, not a translation. I made the scans below before giving the book to the Bodleian Library, which holds the major British collection of T.E. Lawrence material. Research by librarians on the T.E. Lawrence Studies List subsequently located two further copies.
