Item #22554 The Story of the Malakand Field Force. Winston S. Churchill.

The Story of the Malakand Field Force

Longmans, Green & Co., London, 1898, hardcover. The Colonial issue of the first edition. This edition, intended for sale in India and the Colonies, used the same printing plates as the first home issue, so has all the same errors. It is bound in pictorial grey cloth. Latest estimates are that about 1100 of these were issued clothbound . The survival rate is low and most are in poor condition from the tropical climates in which they were sold. 336 pages, 6 maps, no catalogues at rear. This copy has been professionally rebacked and there are thus small areas of the new cloth visible at the ends of the spine. The original spine is browned as usual. The pictorial front cover is clean and attractive. Contents tight, scattered foxing, all maps and frontis present, 13 line errata slip at p. 1. (ICS A1ab). Item #22554

Price: $950.00
