South from Barbary: Justin Marozzi. Just eight copies were produced, of which six survive. In bibliographical terms the result was the first "edition" of Seven Pillars because the text was reproduced on a printing press.
In legal terms, however, these substitutes for a typescript were not "published". Lawrence retained ownership of all the copies and chose who was allowed to read them. The proof-printing became known as the "Oxford Text" of Seven Pillars. As a text it is unsatisfactory because Lawrence could not afford to have the proof corrected.
It therefore contains innumerable transcription errors, and in places lines and even whole paragraphs are missing. He made corrections by hand in five of the copies and had them bound. Instead of burning the manuscript, Lawrence presented it to the Bodleian Library in Oxford.
By mid, Lawrence was in a state of severe mental turmoil: the psychological after-effects of war were taking their toll, as were his exhaustion from the literary endeavours of the past three years, his disillusionment with the settlement given to his Arab comrades-in-arms, and the burdens of being in the public eye as a perceived "national hero".
Concerned over his mental state and eager for his story to be read by a wider public, his friends persuaded him to produce an abridged version of Seven Pillars, to serve as both intellectual stimulation and a source of much-needed income. In his off-duty evenings, he set to trimming the text down to , words for a subscribers ' edition. The Subscribers' Edition — in a limited print run of about copies, each with a unique, sumptuous, hand-crafted binding — was published in late , with the subtitle A Triumph.
Our privations and dangers fanned this virile heat, in a climate as racking as can be conceived.

We had no shut places to be alone in, no thick clothes to hide our nature. Man in all things lived candidly with man. The Arab was by nature continent; and the use of universal marriage had nearly abolished irregular courses in his tribes.
The public women of the rare settlements we encountered in our months of wandering would have been nothing to our numbers, even had their raddled meat been palatable to a man of healthy parts. Later, some began to justify this sterile process, and swore that friends quivering together in the yielding sand with intimate hot limbs in supreme embrace, found there hidden in the darkness a sensual co-efficient of the mental passion which was welding our souls and spirits in one flaming effort.
Several, thirsting to punish appetites they could not wholly prevent, took a savage pride in degrading the body, and offered themselves fiercely in any habit which promised physical pain or filth.
I was sent to these Arabs as a stranger, unable to think their thoughts or subscribe their beliefs, but charged by duty to lead them forward and to develop to the highest any movement of theirs profitable to England in her war.
If I could not assume their character, I could at least conceal my own, and pass among them without evident friction, neither a discord nor a critic but an unnoticed influence. Since I was their fellow, I will not be their apologist or advocate. To-day in my old garments, I could play the bystander, obedient to the sensibilities of our theatre.
What now looks wanton or sadic seemed in the field inevitable, or just unimportant routine.
