CHURCHILL'S SCARCE FIRST BOOK

CHURCHILL, Winston The Story of the Malakand Field Force An Episode of the Frontier War

Longmans 1898.

First edition, first state without the erratum slip preceding the first folding map. 8vo. Original green cloth with gilt titles to the upper cover and spine. Frontispiece portrait, two fold out maps and four full page maps as called for. A near fine copy, with some tanning to the spine, but the boards are notable clean. Page edges tanned, but generally fresh, with armourial bookplate to the front pastedown. Housed in custom made slipcase.

The author's scarce first book written from the author's experience on the Indian frontier. "While I was attached to the Malakand Field Force, I wrote a series of letters from the London Daily Telegraph. The favourable manner in which these letters were received, encouraged me to attempt a more substantial work"
