London, New York & Bombay: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1898. An Episode of Frontier War ... With maps, plans, etc. Octavo, original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, upper cover with panel in blind lettered gilt, black endpapers. Frontispiece portrait and 6 maps, 4 of them folding and coloured, 4 full-page. A couple of tiny spots to cloth, hinge cracked at half title, a little faint toning of contents. An excellent copy. First edition, home issue, only printing, first state of Churchill's first book, this copy without the errata slip at p.1, catalogue dated 12/97. A very attractive copy and uncommon in such excellent condition. Relates his exploits with the Malakand field force, led by Sir Bindon Blood, on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897, based on Churchill's despatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail. As Churchill was still in India when the book was published, the final editing was undertaken by his uncle Moreton Frewen, husband of Clara Jerome, Jennie's elder sister, resulting in numerous small errors which were corrected the following year in the Silver Library edition.
