      New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Here is a beautiful, collector-grade copy of the true first edition of Churchill's third book and only novel. A very young Churchill was exuberant about publication at the time, even though he later made self-deprecating comments about the book. Moreover, even though Savrola was his third published book, it was actually the first book he undertook and the second he completed. It certainly makes for an interesting insight into the early perspective and sentiment of the then very young Churchill. Of note, this is one of the few Churchill books for which the U.S. edition is the true first edition. In fact, the British first edition was issued from American plates. This U.S. first edition is thus the first Churchill book published in the 20th Century. Here is a superlative, near-fine example. The blue cloth binding is tight, square, bright, and clean. All four corners remain sharp. Searching for exterior flaws, we note only only trivial hints of wear confined to extremities and a tiny indentation at the top edge of the front cover. Spine presentation is outstanding; there is no toning or soiling to the spine, which bears only the slightest hints of wear at the spine ends and a few barely discernible spots on the lower third of the spine. The spine gilt remains vivid with no dulling or flaking. The contents are clean and bright. No spotting. The text block edges are clean, showing only slight age-toning. The only flaw preventing this copy from being truly fine is slight warping of pages 80-140, as if they were once exposed to moisture. However, this is only speculation, since the binding shows absolutely no sign of any such exposure and the affected pages are unstained and unspotted. A single previous owner name is inked on the ffep, and is clearly an old signature, as the ink has slightly faded and spread. The outstanding binding is protected in a removable, clear mylar cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A3.1.a, Woods/ICS A3(a.1), Langworth p.39.

First edition and the sole edition illustrated by Alphonse Mucha. The text is five historically inspired tales, decorated with 12 beautiful hand-colored wood-engraved Art Nouveau illustrations (some plates, some in text) by Mucha. There were 100 copies printed on Japan paper, and another 50 on China paper; the present example is one of the former, with the title-page vignette appearing in black and white rather than color.
