Beschreibung:

This is the first edition, second printing of Churchill's fourth book - the first of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. It was during this conflict that Churchill was captured by the Boers. Churchill's daring escape made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill was first elected to Parliament the same year his two Boer War books - London to Ladysmith via Pretoria and Ian Hamilton's March - were published. The second printing of the first edition came just two weeks after the first printing. The two printings have identical bindings. The only readily discernible difference is the words "NEW IMPRESSION" on the title page. This edition is a beautiful book, but notoriously prone to wear, soiling, and toning of the binding and spotting of the contents. Here is a good plus copy of the first edition, second printing - sound and unrestored with superior contents, but with typical external soiling and a modest wear. The pictorial cloth binding is square and tight with sharp corners, but shows soiling and light scuffing to the covers. The spine retains clearly legible gilt and red subtitle, but shows a slight moisture stain to the lower spine, some wear at the spine ends, and an abrasion to the cloth to the right of the flags. The contents are bright with spotting confined to the first few several leaves (up to page 7) and the page edges. All maps and plans present and properly folded, including the folding color map at the title page. The original black endpapers are intact. We find no previous ownership marks. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.1.b, Woods/ICS A4(a.2), Langworth p.53. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Buchbeschreibung Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015. Paperback. Zustand: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The last cry of Any more for the shore? had sounded, the last good-bye had been said, the latest pressman or photographer had scrambled ashore, and all Southampton was cheering wildly along a mile of pier and promontory when at 6 P.M., on October 14, the Royal Mail steamer Dunottar Castle left her moorings and sailed with Sir Redvers Buller for the Cape. For a space the decks remained crowded with the passengers who, while the sound of many voices echoed in their ears, looked back towards the shores swiftly fading in the distance and the twilight, and wondered whether, and if so when, they would come safe home again; then everyone hurried to his cabin, arranged his luggage, and resigned himself to the voyage.

Buchbeschreibung Createspace, United States, 2014. Paperback. Zustand: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. R.M.S. Dunottar Castle, at sea: October 26, 1899. The last cry of Any more for the shore? had sounded, the last good-bye had been said, the latest pressman or photographer had scrambled ashore, and all Southampton was cheering wildly along a mile of pier and promontory when at 6 P.M., on October 14, the Royal Mail steamer Dunottar Castle left her moorings and sailed with Sir Redvers Buller for the Cape. For a space the decks remained crowded with the passengers who, while the sound of many voices echoed in their ears, looked back towards the shores swiftly fading in the distance and the twilight, and wondered whether, and if so when, they would come safe home again; then everyone hurried to his cabin, arranged his luggage, and resigned himself to the voyage. What an odious affair is a modern sea journey! In ancient times there were greater discomforts and perils; but they were recognised. A man took ship prepared for the worst. Nowadays he expects the best as a matter of course, and is, therefore, disappointed. Besides, how slowly we travel! In the sixteenth century nobody minded taking five months to get anywhere. But a fortnight is a large slice out of the nineteenth century; and the child of civilisation, long petted by Science, impatiently complains to his indulgent guardian of all delay in travel, and petulantly calls on her to complete her task and finally eliminate the factor of distance from human calculations. A fortnight is a long time in modern life. It is also a long time in modern war-especially at the beginning. To be without news for a fortnight at any time is annoying. To be without news for a fortnight now is a torture. And this voyage lasts more than a fortnight! At the very outset of our enterprise we are compelled to practise Mr. Morley s policy of patience.
