Beschreibung:

This is the first one-volume edition of Churchill's second book. It was originally published as a two-volume edition in 1899. In 1902 Churchill (by then a new member of Parliament) revised and abridged his text, excising much of the criticism of Kitchener for political reasons. There is also a new Preface. *All* of the many subsequent editions of The River War are based on this 1902 abridged and revised text. Mohammed Ahmed was a messianic Islamic leader in central and northern Sudan in the final decades of the 19th century. Claiming that Allah had selected him as the true Mahdi, he found fertile political ground in the resentment of the inhabitants toward the corruption and oppression by Egyptian rulers who had long dominated the region. The Mahdi's forces and followers were able to occupy most of the Sudan. In 1885, General Gordon famously lost his life in a doomed defence of the capitol, Khartoum, where he had been sent to lead evacuation of Egyptian forces. Though the Mahdi died in 1895, his theocracy continued until 1898, when General Kitchener reoccupied the Sudan. With Kitchener was a very young Winston Churchill, who would participate in the battle of Omdurman in September 1898, where the Mahdist forces were decisively defeated. In his book about the British campaign, Churchill was unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of Imperial cynicism and cruelty. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. This book offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century in a distinctly 19th century world. Because it was significantly revised and because all subsequent editions to date are based on this text, this 1902 first abridged and revised edition is as important and desirable as any in the Churchill canon. This first one-volume edition had only a single printing of just 1,003 copies, and so is considerably more scarce than the first edition. This edition has the same distinctive gilt decoration of the Mahdi's Tomb and gunboat as the first edition, but is bound in red cloth. Here is an aesthetically flawed but nonetheless quite sound and unrestored copy. This copy is ex-library, but with minimal ex-library markings, which include only a faded number below the Mahdi's tomb on the spine and the bookplate of the T.O.H.P. Burnham Library in Essex, Massachusetts affixed to the front pastedown. There is a decorative personal library bookplate affixed to the rear pastedown. The only mark found in the contents is a single inked check mark at the upper left corner of the title page. The original pictorial red cloth binding is tight and square and retains a nicely rounded spine and sharp corners. The illustrated front cover is bright and clean apart from a one inch vertical strip of sunning along the spine. The spine is sunned as usual with some fraying and loss of the cloth as the spine ends, but the gilt lettering and illustration of the Mahdi's Tomb remain clearly legible. The blank rear cover is the significant aesthetic flaw of this copy; roughly a third of the rear cover along the rear hinge is irregularly bleached to nearly white. The contents are very good indeed - crisp and tight with no internal spotting. The curious flaw is the lack of the frontispiece and protective tissue cover. We find no visible sign that it has been removed and the original binding and contents are otherwise intact with no repair or restoration; the original black endpapers remain intact, as do all illustrations and folding maps. The sole sign of spotting is confined to the top edge near the spine. This example is flawed and far from fine, but certainly a respectable copy of a scarce and important edition.
