        Ian Hamilton's March

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. This is the second of two books that chronicle Churchill's adventures during the Boer War, which included capture and confinement as a prisoner of war and a daring escape that helped launch his fame and political career. Here is the first edition, first printing in very good condition. This is a tight, square copy with excellent contents and showing very little wear, humbled only by soiled covers and lightly sunned spine. The contents are crisp, bright, and tight. No previous ownership markings. Trivial spotting is confined to the prelims and text block edges. No inscriptions or previous ownership marks of any kind. The original black endpapers are intact, as are all maps and plans, and both the frontispiece and protective tissue cover. The folding map at the rear is properly folded with no tears. The red cloth binding is tight and square, with sharp corners and nicely rounded spine. Moreover, there is very little wear, the only exception being a .25 inch tear at the head of the spine. The spine gilt remains clearly legible and fairly bright, although the spine is very lightly sunned. The covers show a fair amount of soiling and some fading of the front cover gilt. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.1.a, Woods/ICS A5(a), Langworth p.59.

        The Old Closes & Streets of Glasgow - engraved by Annan from Photographs taken for the City of Glasgow Improvement Trust. With an Introduction by William Young, R. S. W

      Glasgow James MacLehose & Sons 1900. G: in Good condition without dust jacket as issued. Cover rubbed and faded. Content in VG condition. Occasional slight page-edge foxing Third Edition Red/gilt hardback cloth cover with bevelled boards 390mm x 290mm (15" x 11"). 23pp + plates. 50 plates. Annan printed this album in three editions in 1871, 1877, and 1900 respectively according to Fisher. The 1871 process was calotype, 1877, carbon, and 1900 a gravure process. The City Improvement Trust was the body which was charged with the task of cleaning up the squalid living conditions that existed in the city in the second half of the nineteenth century. Learning from visits to Paris, to see the work of Baron Haussmann, the trustees were very successful in adapting the traditional tenement house style to rehouse many thousands of people. This edition was limited to 150 copies.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Company, 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. This is 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. Only 1,500 copies of the first British impression were printed and the survival rate is low, making this a great rarity and considerably more scarce than the U.S. first edition. Here is a first British edition, fist printing. This is an honest first edition that shows some wear and age, but is original and unrestored. The binding is tight and unfaded with bright gilt, but slightly cocked. The green cloth boards are sound, but show a little wear, particularly at the corners. The spine shows light wear along the hinges, as well as some wear at head and tail with just a little fraying at the head. There is a small .25 inch tear above the title on spine. The original black endpapers are intact. The webbing shows a bit at the rear hinge, but the binding is still snug and sound. There is minor spotting throughout, as is common with this edition. The spotting is heavier at the endpapers. There are no bookplates or inscriptions. But interestingly, the ffep is signed "W. Churchill R.H." With a little hope and imagination, one could imagine that "R.H." is a young Churchill, recently elected to Parliament, pompously putting the abbreviation for "Right Honourable" after his name - However, this signature does not look to us like an authentic author signature.

      London: Longmans Green & Co., 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fair. A rare prize - the first printing of the Colonial edition of Churchill's only novel. Far more rare than first U.S. or British Home first editions. Only 1,670 Colonial editions were issued in the decorative hardcover binding - and this small number includes the second and third printings. The survival rate was poor given the tropical climates in much of the colonies. Those few examples that do survive are often quite worn and re-backed or re-bound. This is an original, unrestored copy. The contents are unusually bright and clean for a Colonial copy, with only a very few scattered spots throughout and on the text block edges. The distinctive original swan and ship endpapers are intact (though partially split at the rear hinge). Previous ownership markings are limited to an inked "X" and penciled "8" on the front pastedown, an oval ink stamp of the "Foxhill Public Library" on the ffep, and the faint impression of the same ink stamp on the top edge of the text block. (Please note that, apart from evidence of a previous removal of a spine sticker, there are no other ex-library markings.) The original binding is substantially intact, but showing wear. Notably, the distinctive pictorial front cover is fully intact with only light surface wear. Also noteworthy, the spine retain bright gilt and strong original background color without typical soiling and toning. Nonetheless, the spine shows considerable wear at the hinges and ends. The cloth is entirely worn through at the rear hinge and nearly so along the front hinge. There is a bit of residue indicating sticker removal on the lower third of the spine. The undecorated rear cover is fully intact, but with some significant abrasion spots. The rear cover is still attached, but definitely loose and fragile. This rare example of the first Colonial edition, first printing can be appreciated in its unrestored state, but certainly would be an excellent candidate for rebacking and minor restoration.

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1900. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7 3/4 x 9 3/4 in. Red buckram covers with stamped black lettering and border on cover, lettering on spine. A very scarce true first edition, first printing, with "Copyright 1900" above the publisher's name on the copyright pg. No DJ, as issued. Condition of the book is VERY GOOD ; the covers and spine are clean and fresh, with only slight rubbing. The front corners have wear, with slight fraying, but not the rear. The ends of the spine are rubbed and soft, but show almost no fraying, which is rare. The spine is somewhat darkened, and all the black stamped lettering clear and unchipped except the publisher at base of the spine. The front hinge is separated, but the book overall remains tight. The rear hinge is just begining to separate, but looks fine. There is mild foxing to the endpapers, and the text is all very clean, with a faint waterstain lower left of the title pg. (see photos). This is an interesting association copy that belonged to Albert Bigelow Paine, author of many books, biographer and lettrist of Mark Twain's, who also was a member of the Pulitzer Prize committee. In his hand, in pencil on the ffep he's written: "This is a copy of the first edition of Dreiser's first book. It is now quite valuable, I believe. A.B.P. 1930" This is an exceptionally rare book, in unusually better condition - most have both hinges separated, and considerable fraying to the spine tips. It is also one of the indisputable greats of American 20th c. literature, and was so much maligned for it's truthful portrayal of Carrie's moral corruption, that very few copies were published in the first edition.

        London to Ladysmith via Pretoria

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. This is Churchill's fourth book and the first of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. This one relates the exciting story of his capture by the Boers and the subsequent daring escape that made him a celebrity. The first edition is a beautiful book, but notoriously fragile and prone to wear, soiling, and spotting. This first edition, first printing copy is not fine, but is far better than most copies we see. Spine presentation is the distinguishing feature of this copy; the spine cloth is unusually clean and both the gilt and red lettering remaining bright and clearly legible and with only minor wrinkling at the spine ends. The pictorial front cover shows only light soiling at the edges. The blank rear cover is lightly soiled and stained, but shows only minimal wear at the corners. The contents are bright and clean with virtually no internal spotting and no previous owner inscriptions. Spotting is confined to the text block edges. The original black endpapers are intact. Maps and plans are present, clean, and crisp. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.1.a, Woods/ICS A4(a.1), Langworth p.53.&
