The River War (An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Sudan)

Eyre & Spottiswoode, London, 1940, hardcover. This is the 3rd printing of this edition, and easily the scarcest of the 5 printings of this popular edition. The scarcity of this printing results in a premium and thus its appeal is primarily to completists. Those just wanting a readable early edition should look to the 1933, 1949, or 1951 printings. Similar in appearance to the 1933, the cloth is thinner and of different texture. A nice copy in the very scarce dustwrapper. Book is clean and tight with scattered spots on foredges. Dustwrapper is the correct pictorial blue and black on white style, unclipped, but has lost lower 2 inches of spine and extending into rear cover. (ICS A2da.3). Item #23586

Price: $750.00
