He was also the author of over 50 books on travel, comment and adventure, including 1924's With Lawrence of Arabia. Years before his screen career took off, Thomas travelled with T. E. Lawrence and publicized his diplomatic work in the Sinai and Palestine region. Thomas's photographs of the British archaeologist led to the popularity of him as a romantic figure and the eventual production of Lawrence of Arabia (1962), now considered one of the greatest films of all time. T. E. Lawrence never forgave Thomas for publicizing his life without his permission, however. Book jacket heavily worn, with creasing and toning throughout. Pages slightly toned around edges.
