My African Journey. Winston S. Churchill.

My African Journey

Hodder & Stoughton, London (NY), 1908, hardcover. The American first edition was made from English first edition sheets bound in a plain coarse dark red cloth with the same gilt titles on the spine as used on the English. It is nowhere near as attractive as the English, but far scarcer. There were 3 issues with different title pages, this being the third with publisher noted as George Doran, New York. Cohen reports a total of 1400 copies between the three issues. Original cloth binding far better than most wit decent colour to spine, gilt bright, some cracks at base of spine. Contents clean and free of spots, binding firm. Cohen A27.6, see Langworth p. 84. (A12ab.1). Item #50065

Price: $450.00
