Item #19608 Savrola (A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania). Winston S. Churchill.

Savrola (A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania)

Longman’s Green & Co., London, 1900, 1st edition. paperback. Churchill’s only book length novel, written in 1899, published in 1900. The UK edition was delayed by serialisation of the story in a magazine, so the US issue was actually published first. Bound in medium green cloth, gilt on spine and front cover, 345 pages, black endpapers. Only 1500 copies printed, and the survival rate seems far lower than for Churchill’s historical works, making this a scarce and currently undervalued title. Original cloth is clean with good bright gilt, light wear along back joint. spine has faint vertical wrinkle and light wear at ends. Original black endpapers, front free endpaper has a blind stamp from bookseller. Binding is tight with even page edges, light foxing throughout and on edges. (ICS A3ba). Item #19608

Price: $1,100.00
