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

Eyre & Spottiswoode, London, 1933, hardcover. Copyright page identifies this as “first cheap edition”, but actually it is the second, as there was also a really cheap little edition in 1915. A desirable edition, and the best to read other than a first. This edition uses the setting of the 1902 edition so is abridged. There are 22 maps, many folding and some in two colours. Bound in lilac cloth,, blocked in black on the spine only. 381 pages, index, appendices. This edition adds a new introduction from Churchill. Book is worn with old tape stains on the endpapers. Importantly, it does have its original 1933 dustwrapper, which is worn and stained with label on spine and a large loss along top edge of rear cover. (A2da). Item #32714

Price: $300.00
