About this Item: Hallwag, 1948. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. A fine copy, in a very good dust jacket, of the first German edition. The coarse black cloth binding is clean and unworn, with bold gilt lettering to the spine and front board. Everything is square and tight with unbemped edges and corners.Inside the contents are immaculate with no ownership inscriptions or other markings of any kind. The dust jacket is unclipped (no flap price) and is substantially complete, showing only light edgewear and a short closed tear to the front face. (Please see associated images). It is now protected in a removable archival quality cover. Despite being the third of Churchill's works to be published 'Savrola' was actually the first that he started writing, in the summer of 1897. However, since both 'The Story of the Malakand Field Force' and 'The River War' dealt with far more topical subjects they took priority on the schedule, and 'Savrola' was not published until the end of 1899. It is also tempting to think that the kind of reputation Churchill was seeking from his writing was far better served by accounts of the campaigns he was serving in. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that Churchill poured his maturing political philosophy into the character of his hero Savrola. It has been been argued that this lifts the novel from the 'Ruritanian romance' genre and makes it one of Churchill's most significant literary efforts. Text in German. Seller Inventory # NT002223

About this Item: George Newnes, Limited, London, 1908. Paperback. Condition: Poor. First Illustrated edition. This is the first illustrated edition of Churchill's third book and only novel. A very young Churchill was exuberant about publication at the time. Even though Savrola was his third published book, it was actually the first book he undertook and the second he completed. He would later make deprecating comments about the work. In his 1930 autobiography he wrote, "I have consistently urged my friends to abstain from reading it [Savrola]." However, his mixed feelings about his only novel did not keep Churchill from writing a foreword to a new edition in 1956, in which he said: "The preface to the first edition in 1900 submitted the book 'with considerable trepidation to the judgment or the clemency of the public.' The intervening fifty-five years have somewhat dulled though certainly not changed my sentiments on this point." Irrespective of Churchill's feelings about his book and his limitations as a novelist, this novel certainly provides insight into the early perspective and sentiment of the then very young Churchill. This very early paperback reprint was issued as part of publisher George Newnes' "Sixpenny Novels Illustrated" series. The front cover bears a blue printed illustration of Savrola and Lucille. Two full-page illustrated interior plates on coated paper - at the frontispiece and opposite p.30 - make this the "first illustrated" edition. As a 100 year old paperback, it is obviously quite scarce, most often seen with significant wear, damage, and losses. Offered here is a typical example, priced commensurate with condition. The text is clean and complete with no spotting and no inscriptions, but age-toned as is inevitable. The spine is still mostly intact and legible, with loss only to the "S" in "SAVROLA". The front cover is present, but detached and with some chipping to the edges. The rear cover is detached and missing. Protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A3.5, Woods/ICS A3(c), Langworth p.43. Seller Inventory # 001572

As a 100 year old paperback, it is obviously quite scarce, most often seen with significant wear, damage, and losses. Offered here is an unusually complete but flawed copy - namely that the front and rear covers are both substantially complete with just minor edge wear, but both are completely detached at the hinge. The front cover bears a small and obviously old cellotape fragment measuring less than .5 x .5 inch at the upper left corner. The spine is clean, bright, and shows only minor chips at the head and tail and along the rear hinge. All spine lettering is unaffected. The contents are browned as is inevitable in a paperback of this vintage, but tight and without inscriptions. An highly complete example offered at a low price due to the detached covers. Protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Additional images are available upon request. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A3.5, Woods/ICS A3(c), Langworth p.43. Seller Inventory # 000890

About this Item: Longmans, Green & Co., London & Bombay, 1900. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Winston Churchill's third book & only work of fiction. LONGMANS' COLONIAL LIBRARY.

With "1900" to title page, & "Copyright, 1899, by / Longmans, Green, and Co./ All Rights Reserved" to copyright page (verso of title page). No mention of New Impression. Apparently Longmans' Colonial Library edition is much scarcer & harder to find than the first US or UK editions (4,000 & 1,500 copies printed respectively). There were 1,500 copies of the first impression of the Colonial Library edition published & distributed throughout the empire (published simultaneously with the First UK Edition), in both softcover & illustrated cloth hardcover binding. PLEASE NOTE: This hardcover copy has been REBOUND in plain maroon ribbed cloth with gilt lettering to spine - "Savrola - Churchill" - (no publisher logo, see various photographs). Unclear whether it's been rebound from the sheets of a soft or hardcover copy. Final page states: "Printed from American plates at the Aberdeen University Press". With author's Prefatory Note: "This story was written in 1897, and has already appeared in serial form in Macmillan's Magazine. Since its first reception was not unfriendly, I resolved to publish it as a book, and I now submit it with considerable trepidation to the judgment or clemency of the public". With publisher's boxed advertisement for Churchill's The River War & The Story of the Malakand on verso of half-title page (opposite title page). No additional advertisements. Hardcover copy, REBOUND in plain maroon ribbed cloth with bright gilt lettering to spine. No dustjacket. Handling wear, long split along length of outside front gutter & both inside hinges split at endpaper folds (but all holding tight), binding cocked, mild foxing throughout, two pages with tiny closed tears to upper margin, otherwise a nice clean tight solid hardcover copy. Overall VERY GOOD. ix + 345pp. Extremely RARE Colonial Library edition, albeit rebound. Size: 18.5 x 12cm. Seller Inventory # 027004

However, his mixed feelings about his only novel did not keep Churchill from writing a foreword to a new edition in 1956, in which he said: "The preface to the first edition in 1900 submitted the book 'with considerable trepidation to the judgment or the clemency of the public.' The intervening fifty-five years have somewhat dulled though certainly not changed my sentiments on this point." Irrespective of Churchill's feelings about his book and his limitations as a novelist, this novel certainly provides 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.

About this Item: Longmans, Green, and Company, London, 1900. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. 1st Edition. This is Churchill's third book and only novel. A very young Churchill was exuberant about publication at the time. Even though Savrola was his third published book, it was actually the first book he undertook and the second he completed. He would later make deprecating comments about the work. In his 1930 autobiography he wrote, "I have consistently urged my friends to abstain from reading it [Savrola]." However, his mixed feelings about his only novel did not keep Churchill from writing a foreword to a new edition in 1956, in which he said: "The preface to the first edition in 1900 submitted the book 'with considerable trepidation to the judgment or the clemency of the public.' The intervening fifty-five years have somewhat dulled though certainly not changed my sentiments on this point." Irrespective of Churchill's feelings about his book and his limitations as a novelist, this novel certainly provides 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 considerably more scarce than the U.S. first edition. Here is a first British edition, first printing. This is a respectable, very good overall copy with some flaws. On the positive side, the green cloth binding is bright and unfaded, showing only light wear at the corners and spine extremities. Of particular note is the unfaded spine color. Detracting from the external appearance, the binding is slightly cocked - as are nearly all copies of this edition - and the texture of the spine cloth is slightly mottled. The contents are tight and retain the original black endpapers with no splits or gutter breaks, but there is intermittent spotting throughout and a previous owner name inked on the ffep. The fore edge of the text block also bears a small burn scar (likely an errant cigarette) affecting a .25 inch portion of the edges of pages 321 through 334.
