From the Castle Hill Press Website:
"In 1997 we published a large-format limited edition of Seven Pillars of Wisdom, The Complete 1922 Text. This contained a 'best text' edited from Lawrence's manuscript and his amended copy of the Oxford Times proof printing. The 1997 edition was the first publication of the 1922 text of Seven Pillars anywhere in any form.
In 2003 we published a one-volume Library Edition, followed in 2004 by a hardback under our trade imprint J. and N. Wilson. These 2003/4 editions contained a new 49-page scholarly index by Hazel Bell, which won Britain's top indexing award. "
