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 publisher shown as Hodder & Stoughton, New York and London.. Cohen reports a total of 1400 copies between the three issues. Covers have good colour, spine sunned with an obvious outline of an old label. The only internal marking is a very faint oval stamp on the back of the first photo. Scattered foxing in text and some spots on the untrimmed page edges. Cohen A27.5, see langworth p. 84. (A12ab.1). Item #50066

Price: $265.00
