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

Longmans Green & Co., London, 1902, Second edition, abridged into a single volume. As Churchill was now aspiring to politics, much of the criticism of Kitchener in the original has now been deleted. This edition has 22 maps, of which 14 are coloured in 3 colours. Bound in medium red cloth, blocked gilt with same images of a gunboat and the Mahdi’s Tomb as the first edition, resulting in a highly attractive book. 381 pages, index, appendices. Scarcer than first edition, only 1000 copies issued. Woods A2b, Cohen A2.2. Original cloth is clean with bright covers, spine somewhat dull with wear at ends. Original endpapers both have cracks at the hinges. Foredges are even, off-white, but no spots, top edges dusty. Contents clean with no names or markings, paper off white, no foxing seen. No catalogue at rear. (ICS A2b). Item #36618

Price: $750.00
