This is the quite scarce first Indian edition of Churchill's history of the U.S. Civil War. The text derives from Churchill's A History of the English-Speaking Peoples. Churchill's interest in America's great struggle was quite serious; Churchill toured Virginia battlefields with the great Civil War historian Douglas Southall Freeman and toured Gettysburg with none other than Dwight Eisenhower. The text is accompanied by numerous photographs. This unusual Indian edition was photo-reproduced from British edition sheets. The dust jacket is similar in style to that of the British edition, but bears a different front face illustration showing Lincoln and his generals. Langworth calls this "a rare item, hardly ever seen". Here is a very nice copy, near-fine in a near-fine plus dust jacket. The maroon cloth binding is square and tight with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. A little wrinkling at the spine ends, incidental wear at the corners, and small spot of whitish scuffing to the front cover are all that prevent this copy from being fine. The contents remain crisp and bright with no previous ownership marks, no spotting, and clean page edges. The unclipped dust jacket is notably clean with no losses or tears. We note fractional wear to the lower spine and a barely visible crease to the front panel. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
