Beschreibung

This is Churchill's fourth book and 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 and made a daring escape that made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. The American edition offered here is more scarce than the British, with a single printing of just 3,000 copies issued. The pebble grain red cloth of this edition proved durable, but susceptible to blotchy wear and discoloration, particularly on the spine. This copy is a very good+, collector worthy example. The binding is tight and square, retaining a nicely rounded spine. The spine retains unusually bright color and gilt, though some of the usual light wear is present, as is a small blemish at the left side of the author's name. Nonetheless, spine presentation is far above average. The covers likewise retain vivid color and bright gilt. The corners are all just a bit soft and there is a very small black ink mark on the blank rear cover. The contents are clean and tight with all maps and plans present and intact. No spotting. There is an inked previous owner name and note dated "Oct 20th 1934" on the ffep. The top edge gilt remains bright. The page edges show the typical age toning.
