The scarce privately printed volume of letters from Lawrence to Bruce Rogers, 1928-1932, chiefly in connection with Lawrence’s translation of the Odyssey, designed and produced by Rogers. A great association as New York City bookseller Duschnes was a specialist in fine press books and also sold lots of T.E.L. material. He distributed Secret Dispatches and other Golden Cockerel titles in America. After Lawrence’s death, Rogers printed a second volume containing a few more letters in 1936.
