This commentary on the Book of Revelation was written while Lawrence was suffering from tuberculosis, from which he died in 1930. As he struggled to accept both his own death and his continuing life as he survived each bout of illness, he wrote Apocalypse to be "a kind of last testament, a last effort to make himself understood by the very many who had either not listened to him or had failed to understand him" (Aldington's Introduction). Preceded by the 1931 limited edition of 750 copies published in Florence. Very Good, no DJ. Item #1332

Published posthumously.
