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 first edition is a beautiful book with a distinctive, pictorial front cover, but is notoriously fragile and prone to wear, soiling, and spotting. This first edition, first printing copy is not perfect, but better than many we see, in very good condition. Moreover, it is accompanied by a custom slipcase. The khaki cloth binding remains tight and square, with a nicely rounded spine. Spine presentation is quite respectable, with both the gilt and red subtitle remaining bright. The binding shows minor wear at the spine ends, corners, and hinges, with a bit of fraying at the rear hinge. The significant visual flaw is some sunning to the top edge of the front cover across the title. The pictorial front cover is only lightly soiled, as is the rear cover. The contents are unusually clean, and tight. We find no inscriptions or internal markings. The original black endpapers are present and intact. All maps are present and complete, though the folding map at pages 366 and 448 were a bit creased and frayed at the edges and have been neatly and professionally reinforced. Internal spotting is light, heaviest on the title page. The page edges show only light spotting and age-toning. The slipcase accompanying the volume is coated in marbled paper with tan edges at the opening. The slipcase is in fine condition.
