LOCK, Major Henry Osmond. With the British Army in the Holy Land … With Maps. London, Robert Scott, 1919.
8vo. Original buckram with printed dust-wrapper; pp. ix, 149, five double-page maps, initially light offsetting from the discolouration of the endpapers; otherwise very good.
Uncommon first edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on front fly-leaf, together with signed typed letter by the publisher to the author about the distribution of the book. Lock had participated in the campaigns in Egypt, Mesopotamia and Palestine with the Dorsetshire Regiment. We don't know whether Lock encountered TEL; however, in a later book by him, The Conquerors of Palestine Through Forty Centuries, he deals with Lawrence's exploits.
