A few notations in pen. ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. ; 9.29 X 6.38 X 1.02 inches; 233 pages; "First published in 1898 this text describes the force to which Churchill was attached when it was sent to subdue the rebellious Mohmands on the North-West Frontier in 1897. The author was a subaltern in the 4th Hussars but found regimental life too quiet to satisfy his adventurous spirit and when he heard that a Field Force of three Brigades was being formed under General Sir Bindon Blood to quell a revolt of the Pathan tribesmen, asked to join it." The only way he could do this was to acquire accreditation as a correspondent. He ended up writing for the London Daily Telegraph and two Indian newspapers. These writings were so well received that Churchill turned them into his first book. Seller Inventory # 18193

About this Item: W.W. Norton & Company, Inc., New York, 1990. Hardcover. This is a modern hardcover reprint of Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. This copy is in very good minus condition in a like dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is clean, square, and tight with bright gilt. The contents are crisp and bright though dog-eared throughout by a previous owner who also inked a small, decorative monogram to the front free endpaper. The dust jacket is crisp, bright, and unclipped, with no losses, tears, or wear. The previous owner neatly affixed tape to the inside of all folds, presumably as a means of reinforcement as there was no evident need for repairs. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Included are photocopied and hand colored maps as well as a magazine article on the war on India’s Northwest Frontier which we found laid into the book. When this book was written and published, Churchill was a young cavalry officer still serving in India. While he had successfully applied his pen as a war correspondent - indeed the book is based on his dispatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail - this was his first book-length work. The young Churchill was motivated by a combination of pique and ambition. He was vexed that his Daily Telegraph columns were to be published unsigned. On 25 October 1897 Churchill wrote to his mother: ".I had written them with the design. of bringing my personality before the electorate." Two weeks later, his resolve to write a book firming, Churchill again wrote to his mother: ".It is a great undertaking but if carried out will yield substantial results in every way, financially, politically, and even, though do I care a damn, militarily." Having invested his ambition in this first book, he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." The finished manuscript was sent to his mother on the last day of 1897 and published on 14 March of 1898.

About this Item: Longmans, Green, & Co., London, 1899. Hardcover. This is the first printing of the Silver Library edition of Churchill's first book. The Story of the Malakand Field Force recounts Churchill's experiences while attached to Sir Bindon Blood's punitive expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. When this book was first published in 1898, Churchill was a young cavalry officer and war correspondent. While he had successfully applied his pen as a journalist, this was Churchill's first book-length work and he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." The young Churchill was motivated by a combination of pique and ambition. He was vexed that his Daily Telegraph columns were to be published unsigned. On 25 October 1897 Churchill wrote to his mother: "I had written them with the design of bringing my personality before the electorate." Two weeks later, his resolve to write the book firming, Churchill again wrote to his mother of the project: "It is a great undertaking but if carried out will yield substantial results in every way, financially, politically, and even, though do I care a damn, militarily." Publication of the first edition of 1898 was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. In part because of the errors in the first edition which so vexed Churchill, the publisher also issued a second edition less than a year after the first in January 1899. This Silver Library edition was the first to incorporate the author's corrections in the text, making this an important and highly collectable edition. Unfortunately, the maroon boards proved highly susceptible to fading and wear, the paper easily browned and became brittle, and the binding often cracked. Here is the first Silver Library edition, first printing - one of just 1,440 copies. This is good plus copy whose chief flaws are modest wear and typical spine toning. The maroon cloth binding is square and tight, with light wear to extremities, wrinkling to the spine ends, and a tiny hole and associated scuff at the spine center. The spine is sunned, with some lighter fading extending to the front and rear covers adjacent to the spine. Nonetheless, the spine gilt remains bright and clearly legible. All maps are intact, as are the frontispiece and original tissue guard and the original, distinctive swan and ship endpapers. The contents show typical age-toning and moderate spotting. A single previous ownership mark dated "1946" is inked on the recto of the blank page preceding the half title. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.3.a, Woods/ICS A1(ba.1), Langworth p.20.

Unfortunately, the maroon boards proved highly susceptible to fading and wear, the paper easily browned and became brittle, and the binding often cracked. This first Silver Library edition, first printing - one of just 1,440 copies – is in very good condition. Shelf presentation is superior for the edition; the spine retains particularly strong color and bright gilt with almost no discernible color shift between the covers and spine – a rarity. The binding is square and tight, showing modest overall mottling of the color and light wear to extremities. The contents remain comparatively bright for the edition, the age-toning light for the edition. The distinctive swan and ship endpapers are intact, as are the frontispiece, tissue guard, and maps. Spotting is light within, primarily confined to the prelims and page edges. The sole previous ownership mark is an inked owner name dated "1899." on the front free endpaper verso. When this book was written and published, Churchill was a young cavalry officer still serving in India.

About this Item: London & Bombay: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1898, 1898. Octavo. Bound in recent green cloth, titles to spine gilt, brown coated endpapers, red speckled edges. Housed in a custom red half morocco solander box. Occasional faint foxing to contents; an excellent copy. Frontispiece portrait with tissue guard and 6 maps (4 of them folding and coloured, 4 full-page). First edition, Colonial Library issue of Churchill's first book (the first and second printings are identical). The book relates Churchill's 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.

About this Item: Longmans, Green and Co., London, 1898. Hardcover. First edition, only printing. This is the first edition, only printing of Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. Condition of this unrestored, original, and complete copy approaches very good. Though it is technically ex-library, there are no external indicators. The publisher’s green cloth binding remains remains tight and square with bright gilt and nicely rounded spine. Slight softness to the corners, moderate overall soiling, and a .25 inch (6 mm) split at the spine head do not substantially detract from exterior presentation. The only indications of ex-library status are a bookplate and an ink stamp. The plate is that of "Cardiff Public Libraries" affixed to the front pastedown indicating that this book was "Bequeathed to the Central Library" in "May, 1935" by a "William Price James, M.A." We find no other previous ownership marks. A .75 inch (19 mm) diameter round ink-stamp of "Cardiff Public Libraries" is found at the foot of the blank title page verso, with diminutive library notation beneath. The contents remain quite respectably clean for the edition. All maps are intact, including the folding maps at pages 1 and 146, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard. The original black endpapers are present, with just a .75 inch (19mm) unobtrusive cosmetic split to the paper at the front pastedown gutter that does not affect binding integrity and a tiny chip to the upper left corner of the front free endpaper. Spotting is mild for the edition, incidental within and modest to the page edges, which show light dust soiling to the top edges and a little shelf soiling to the bottom edges. Second state of the first and only printing is confirmed by an errata slip tipped in at p. 1 and a rear catalogue dated "3/98". When this book was written and published, Churchill was a young cavalry officer still serving in India. While he had successfully applied his pen as a war correspondent - indeed the book is based on his dispatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail - this was his first book-length work. The young Churchill was motivated by a combination of pique and ambition. He was vexed that his Daily Telegraph columns were to be published unsigned. On 25 October 1897 Churchill wrote to his mother: ".I had written them with the design. of bringing my personality before the electorate." Two weeks later, his resolve to write a book firming, Churchill again wrote to his mother: ".It is a great undertaking but if carried out will yield substantial results in every way, financially, politically, and even, though do I care a damn, militarily." Having invested his ambition in this first book, he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." The finished manuscript was sent to his mother on the last day of 1897 and published on 14 March of 1898. Publication was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. Home Issue copies also bear a 32-page Longmans, Green catalogue bound in at the back, which is dated either "12/97" or "3/98" at the foot of page 32. With only a little more than 1,900 copies bound, this first edition of Churchill's first book is both desirable and elusive. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.1.b, Woods/ICS A1(aa), Langworth p.12.

About this Item: Longmans, Green, & Co., London, 1898. Hardcover. First Colonial edition. This is the scarce first edition, first printing of the "Colonial Library" issue of Churchill's first book, bearing the unusual and rarely seen Indian errata slip arranged personally by Churchill. The author's first book recounts his experiences when attached to Sir Bindon Blood's punitive expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. First printing copies of the Colonial issue were produced in small numbers simultaneously with the Home Issue. The harsher climate and condition of the colonies meant low survival rates and often poor condition for those few examples that survived. Complicating matters for collectors, there were no fewer than 10 different editions, printings, and binding variations for the very small number of Colonial issues ultimately produced from 1898 to 1901. Here is the important first printing of the Colonial issue made still more scarce and desirable by the presence of the rare Indian errata slip unique to this particular Colonial issue. Publication of the first edition of 1898 was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Per Cohen in his Bibliography: "Colonial Library copies are known with an unusual errata slip, which was prepared in India on or about 7 April 1898. It was, therefore, in all likelihood available in first edition copies in India before the domestic errata slips were available in London and certainly before the domestic errata slips were available in India." (Cohen p.14). Churchill was still serving in India at the time. In a 22 March 1898 letter to his mother, Churchill lamented the "gross & fearful blunders" of the first edition and stated: "I may catch the Indian edition, in which the absurdities would be most laughed at." Evidence indicates that Churchill personally arranged for the printing of the Indian slips, paid for them himself, and had them tipped into the Colonial copies before distribution. They are printed on distinctive laid, watermarked paper and contain four additional corrections not found on the domestic errata slip, as well as small differences in the other corrigenda. Given the provenance of the Indian errata slip, we can be confident that this copy originally sold in India, where the young author was serving at the time. This first printing of the colonial issue is also noteworthy for being the only of the many books published in Churchill’s lifetime with the "L." for "Leonard" appearing on both the binding (spine and lower front cover) and the title page. This is an original, unrestored copy, meaning it has not been rebacked or had endpapers replaced like so many of the copies that survive. Condition is very good, particularly given the inherent rigors associated with colonial provenance. The binding is square, the hallmark greenish-gray color still distinct on both the covers and spine, the striking front cover illustrated in blue only modestly scuffed, the spine gilt still bright. We note wear to corners and spine ends, light overall scuffing and soiling, and a small, stray ink mark to the center front hinge. The contents are improbably bright and clean for a colonial issue, with only a few trivial spots and no previous ownership marks. The frontispiece and original tissue guard are intact, the maps present and properly folded. The contents are firmly attached to the binding, despite a cosmetic split following the front free endpaper that exposes the intact mull beneath. Overall, a well-preserved and completely original copy of this first printing of the first Colonial Library issue, sold in India while Churchill was still there.

About this Item: Longmans, Green and Co., London, 1898. Hardcover. First edition, only printing. This is the first edition, only printing of Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. Condition is very good, a quite respectable, original, unrestored copy. The publisher’s green cloth binding remains tight and square with sound corners and no appreciable color shift between the covers and spine. We note light wear to hinges and extremities, and modest soiling, mostly to the spine, though with a small ink stain at the lower front hinge and a smaller ink mark at the front hinge two inches from the bottom. The contents are clean apart from typical intermittent spotting throughout. We find no previous ownership marks. All maps are intact, including the folding maps at pages 1 and 146, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard. The original black endpapers are present, notably without any sign of the usual splits at the gutters.

About this Item: Longmans, Green and Co., London, 1898. Hardcover. First edition, only printing. This is the first edition, only printing, first state of Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. First state is confirmed by the lack of an errata slip and a publisher’s catalogue dated "12/97". Condition is very good overall, a quite respectable sound and unrestored copy. The publisher’s green cloth binding remains tight and square with sharp corners and only light wear to hinges and extremities. The chief exterior defects are modest overall spine toning and a roughly .75 x .75 inch stain at the lower front corner. Nonetheless, shelf presentation is good, with strong green color despite the toning and gilt that remains bright and distinct. The contents are quite clean for the edition. Spotting is mostly confined to the page edges and first several leaves spanning the half title to the contents, only occasionally intruding to blank inner margins of the main text. We find no previous ownership marks. All maps are intact, including the folding maps at pages 1 and 146, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard.

With only a little more than 1,900 copies bound, this first edition of Churchill's first book is both desirable and elusive in collector worthy condition. Here is a superior copy, notable both for condition and bibliographic interest. As noted by Churchill’s bibliographer Ronald Cohen, second state copies of the first edition typically contain a rear catalogue dated "3/98". However, Cohen notes having seen two second state copies with rear catalogues dated "12/97" and concludes that with these early second state copies - "12/97 catalogues were used until the supply was exhausted, and 3/98 catalogues were employed thereafter." Here is one such early second state copy, with both the errata slip and a rear catalogue dated "12/97". (See Cohen, Vol. I, p.10.) We conservatively grade overall condition of this copy as very good plus. The green cloth binding remains square and tight with strong color, bright gilt, and square corners. We note mild spine toning, with only light overall soiling, a few small blemishes in the spine title box, and a little wrinkling to the spine ends. The contents are very good for the edition. The original black endpapers are intact, with no splits or cracking. All maps are intact, including the folding maps at pages 1 and 146, as is the frontispiece, and both folding maps and the frontispiece remain protected by the original tissue guards. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is moderate for the edition, occasional and intermittent throughout and visible on the page edges.
