Item #24103 Savrola (A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania). Winston S. Churchill.

Savrola (A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania)

George Newnes, London, (1908), paperback. An early “pulp” style reprint of Churchill’s novel. Printed on cheap pulpy paper which goes brown, ads at each end, in illustrated slick paper covers printed red and blue. Size 5.75 x 8.25 inches, 128 pages, with two full page plates on slick paper, making it the first illustrated edition. Part of Newnes “sixpenny novels illustrated” series. A fragile item, low survivability, certainly scarcer than first, but not as high value. This copy reasonably crisp, spine is all there but a vertical crack running up from bottom for 3 inches. Front cover all there, slight wear at lower corner. rear cover has a few small losses and a red stain near upper right corner. Contents browned as usual but clean and undamged. Not perfect, but a superior copy of a fragile edition. (ICS A3c). Item #24103

Price: $400.00
