Beschreibung:

This is the U.S. first edition of Churchill's fourth published book. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria is the first of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted between the descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa and the British. Churchill, an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter, on 15 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria contains 27 letters and telegrams to the Morning Post written between 26 October 1899 and 10 March 1900. It was published in England in mid-May 1900 and sold well. Churchill returned from South Africa in July 1900 and spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, where he won his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election". The American edition offered here is more scarce than the British, with a single printing of just 3,000 copies issued. This edition is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine. Here is a sound, good plus copy with good shelf presentation and contents, marred only by aesthetic flaws to the covers and a missing map. The binding is square and tight, with strong red spine color and bright gilt. What leads us to grade this copy as only good plus is a slight indentation and moisture stain on the lower third of the front cover and a larger, though faint, moisture stain on the rear cover. There is only minor wear to extremities, apart from a bit of fraying to the upper rear corner. The contents are bright. The folding map that is supposed to be tipped in at the title page is missing. Previous ownership marks are a partially erased name and the date "1900" in pencil on the first free endpaper and the embossed name of a Denver bookseller on the bottom of the title page. Very light spotting appears confined to the rear pastedown and fore edge. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.2, Woods/ICS A4(b), Langworth p.55. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 003134

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.
