        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.&

      New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Here is a spectacular, 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 plus example - about as good as they come and quite scarce thus. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, bright, and tight with sharp corners and bright gilt. We note only trivial wear at the spine ends and corners. Spine presentation is exceptional, with no toning or soiling of the dark blue cloth and vividly bright gilt. The contents are likewise noteworthy - crisp, clean, and bright. No spotting. No age-toning. Even the page edges are uncommonly bright. The only complaint is the sole previous ownership mark - the rather prominent inked initials and last name of a previous owner on the ffep. This previous owner name has ghosted lightly onto the facing front pastedown and the ink has bled through to the ffep verso and slightly onto the half title. Apart from this nit, this is about as fine a copy as we have ever seen or offered. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A3.1.a, Woods/ICS A3(a.1), Langworth p.39.

        BIZERTE, en son passé, son présent, son avenir. TRENTE-SIX ILLUSTRATIONS EN COULEURS DE L'AUTEUR.

      - Paris J. Rothschild, 1900. In-4 relié demi-maroquin ocre, titre doré aligné verticalement sur dos plat, (couverture rempliée conservée), 79 pages. Ouvrage superbement illustré de trente-six dessins aquarellés hors-texte. Quelques faibles rousseurs, intérieur assez frais, reliure en parfait état et de belle facture. Bel exemplaire, rare, et complet de ses planches.Louis-Salvador ( 4 août 1847, 12 octobre 1915 à Brandýs nad Labem, Bohême) était le fils du grand-duc de Toscane, Léopold II, et de son épouse Marie-Antoinette de Bourbon-Siciles.Avec son « ondine bien-aimée », l'archiduc a sillonné la Méditerranée des décennies durant, généralement avec un équipage d’une vingtaine de personnes, sans compter des chiens, des chats, des oiseaux, des singes ou tout autre bête, si bien que les contemporains ont appelé le navire "l’Arche de Noé". L’arrivée dans les ports des compagnons de voyage de l'archiduc, bigarrés et hétéroclites, suscitait toujours une intense curiosité, ce qui se comprend parfaitement. Louis-Savador s’est souvent adonné, accompagné de son secrétaire mallorquin Don antoni Vives et de guides connaissant bien le terrain, à de longues excursions pendant lesquelles il décrivait dans tous leurs détails, le paysage, la flore, la faune, la population et la culture de ses escales. Il avait toujours un petit calepin de la forme d'un globe, de quoi écrire et du papier. De cette façon, il s’est constitué une collection de croquis parfaitement maîtrisés qui illustraient ses descriptions. Louis Salvador a rassemblé toutes ces informations en de volumineux manuscrits qu’il a fait imprimer, à ses propres frais, chez l’éditeur pragois Mercy sous la forme de livres luxueux. Sur un tirage de 500 exemplaires en moyenne, l’archiduc offrait alors ces éditions rares à des amis, des collaborateurs et à d'autres personnes ou institutions intéressées par son travail.
