Savrola (A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania)

Longman’s Green & Co., London, 1900, Churchill’s only book length novel, written in 1899, published in 1900. The Colonial issue was part of the first edition and uses the same sheets with a modified title page. Bound like the Colonial Malakand in grey cloth decorated on the cover in dark blue, gilt titles on spine. Endpapers pale green patterned with ship and swan design. These cheap Colonial editions wear poorly and most fell apart in tropical climates, so survival is very low. Considerably scarcer than Home or American firsts. This copy has been expertly recased with new cloth backing up some gaps in the thin, darkened spine cloth. Original ship and swan patterned endpapers retained. Contents generally clean, a few edge spots. Pictorial front cover clear and bright. (ICS A3bb). Item #36572

Price: $1,500.00
