Condition: Very Good

Description: 409 pages (complete). A comfortable copy. Churchill was clearly in awe of Hamilton and his march from Bloemfontein to Pretoria. It is not known whether this was reciprocated a few years later when Hamilton was a commander during the Gallipoli Campaign and Churchill was 'in charge' of the Campaign from London. The boards have scuffing, wear, handling marks. They are steady and sure. The contents are most pleasing. They are clean, clear, companionable, certain, confident, keen. fk

Winston S. Churchill. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria. Longmans, Green, and Co., New York, 1900.

Price: US$125.00 + shipping

Condition: Good

Description: This is the U.S. first edition of Churchill's fourth book - the first of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. It was during this conflict that Churchill was captured by the Boers and made a daring escape that made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill was first elected to Parliament the same year his two Boer War books - London to Ladysmith via Pretoria and Ian Hamilton's March - were published. The American edition offered here is more scarce than the British, with a single printing of just 3,000 copies issued. The pebble grain red cloth of this edition proved durable, but susceptible to blotchy wear and discoloration, particularly on the spine. This copy is in good condition - structurally sound with the cosmetic flaw of a particularly ugly spine. The red cloth binding is square and tight with little wear and soiling to the covers and bright spine gilt, but markedly blotchy and darkened for the entire length of the spine. The contents remain bright and tight with no previous owner inscriptions or bookplates. All maps and plans are intact. Light spotting is confined to the page edges and just a few spots in the prelims. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.2, Woods/ICS A4(b), Langworth p.55.

Winston S. Churchill. Ian Hamilton's March. Longmans, Green, and Co., London, 1900.

Price: US$275.00 + shipping

Description: This is the British first edition, second and final printing, of Churchill's fifth published book. Ian Hamilton's March was the second of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa during the Boer War. The first edition, second printing was produced a month after the first printing and is nearly identical, the main differences being the addition of the words "Second Edition" to the title page and notation of the second printing on the copyright page, a boxed list of the author’s preceding books on the half-title verso, and four small emendations to the text. This is an extremely nice, very good plus copy. How we wish it were a first printing! The good news is that it costs much less and looks identical on the shelf. The red cloth binding is far better than usually seen - clean and tight with sharp corners, no appreciable soiling, and bright gilt. Spine presentation is excellent. Wear is trivial, mostly confined to some wrinkling at the spine ends, and the spine retains almost the same color as the bright and clean covers, with only very minor sunning. The contents are bright with a crisp, unread feel. All maps and plans are present and intact, as are the original black endpapers and the tissue guard at the frontispiece. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is primarily confined to the prelims through the dedication page, and the page edges. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted between the descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa and the British. Churchill, an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter, on 15 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later rendered him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill's first book of Boer War despatches, London to Ladysmith via Pretoria, was published in England in mid-May 1900 and sold well. Ian Hamilton's March completes Churchill's coverage of the Boer War, publishing 17 letters to the Morning Post, spanning 31 March through 14 June 1900. The narrative in Ian Hamilton's March includes the liberation of the Pretoria prison camp where Churchill had been held. Though a companion and sequel to London to Ladysmith, it is notably different in appearance, content, and scarcity. The first printing saw only 5,000 copies - half as many copies as London to Ladysmith. Where Ladysmith bore a lavishly illustrated binding, Ian Hamilton's March was bound in red cloth matching the style of Churchill's first published book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force - fitting, as these were the first and last Churchill first editions published by Longmans, Green, and Co. While London to Ladysmith via Pretoria had swiftly published Churchill's dispatches in the wake of his capture and escape, for Ian Hamilton's March "the texts of the originally published letters were more extensively revised and four letters were included which had never appeared in periodical form" (Cohen, A8.1.a, Vol. I, p.105). Churchill effected these revisions while on board the passenger and cargo steamer Dunottar Castle, which was requisitioned as a troop ship, en route home to England. Arriving home from South Africa in July 1900, Churchill spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, where he won his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election". The British first edition of Ian Hamilton's March was published just a few weeks later, on 12 October, with this second and final printing following in November.

Condition: Good

Description: Here is the U.S. first edition of Churchill's fifth book - the second of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted in South Africa between the descendants of Dutch settlers and the British. As an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, Churchill swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter - on 18 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill's first Boer War book, London to Ladysmith via Pretoria, contained 27 letters and telegrams to the Morning Post written between 26 October 1899 and 10 March 1900 and was published in England in mid-May. Ian Hamilton's March completes Churchill's coverage of the Boer War, comprising 17 letters to the Morning Post, spanning 31 March through 14 June 1900. While London to Ladysmith via Pretoria had swiftly published Churchill's dispatches in the wake of his capture and escape, for Ian Hamilton's March "the texts of the originally published letters were more extensively revised and four letters were included which had never appeared in periodical form" (Cohen, A8.1.a, Vol. I, p.105). Churchill effected these revisions while on board the passenger and cargo steamer Dunottar Castle which was requisitioned as a troop ship, en route home to England. Churchill arrived on 20 July 1900 and spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, capitalizing on his war status and winning his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election." The narrative in Ian Hamilton's March includes the liberation of the Pretoria prison camp where Churchill had been held and from which he had famously escaped. The title takes its name from General Sir Ian Hamilton's campaign from Bloemfontein to Johannesburg and Pretoria. Churchill would maintain a life-long friendship with Hamilton, who would be involved in the Gallipoli landings and to whom Churchill would sell his first country home. Published on 26 November 1900, the U.S. first edition was thus available for sale when Churchill arrived in New York on 8 December 1900 for his first North American lecture tour. The U.S. first edition saw only a single printing. The number sold is unclear, but seems to be fewer than 1,500. This American edition is thus considerably more scarce than the British first edition, of which more than 5,000 first printing copies were issued. Like the U.S. first edition of Ladysmith, the U.S. first edition of Ian Hamilton's March is bound in pebble grain red buckram which proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine. Here is a good plus copy. The red cloth binding is square and retains both sharp corners and bright gilt. The spine is bit darkened, but evenly and with only mild wear, thus presenting unusually well on the shelf. The front cover shows some of the mottling of the color to which this edition is prone around the perimeter and has a slight outward warp. The contents remain clean with no previous ownership marks. All maps and plans are present and perfectly preserved, as are the frontispiece and tissue guard. The only spotting we find is limited to the half-title verso and facing frontispiece verso. The front hinge is a bit tender, but still fully intact. Faint evidence of a moisture stain barely shows at the upper right corner of pages 61 to 287. The top edge gilt is a bit dulled and the fore and bottom edges age-toned. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.2, Woods/ICS A5(ca), Langworth p.61.

The red cloth covers show only light shelf wear. Spine presentation is quite decent. The spine retains bright gilt and the red color is only slightly darkened with a bit of wear at the spine ends and along the hinges, the worst of which is a touch of fraying at the top of the spine and a small, .25 inch hole at the rear hinge. The contents are bright, retaining the original black endpapers, the folding map at the rear, and the tissue guard at the frontispiece. There is spotting at the prelims, heaviest on the title page, and very slight on the text block edges. The sole previous ownership marking is an oval ink stamp on the title page. The folding map following p.409 has been professionally backed with muslin. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.1.a, Woods/ICS A5(a), Langworth p.59

The top edge gilt remains bright, though lightly soiled and with a small oval stain. The tissue over the frontispiece is intact, as are all maps and plans. There is a decorative owner bookplate on the front pastedown and the name of this same owner inked on the ffep and dated "1903".

Price: US$400.00 + shipping

Description: This is the British first edition, first printing, first issue of Churchill's fifth published book. Ian Hamilton's March was the second of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa during the Boer War. Condition of this copy is good, sound and original, though aesthetically flawed. The publisher’s red cloth binding is square and tight with sharp corners. Shelf presentation is respectable, the gilt still bright and the red color only modestly and uniformly toned, a little wrinkled at the spine ends, with a few tiny black spots. The chief detraction of this copy is mottling of the color, significant on the front cover, confined to the bottom edge of the rear cover. The contents are quite good, with a crisp, unread feel. The frontispiece and tissue guard are intact, as are all of the maps and plans and the original black endpapers. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is light, substantially confined to the half-title, Appendix, and page edges. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted between the descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa and the British. Churchill, an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter, on 15 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later rendered him a celebrity and helped launch his political career.

Where Ladysmith bore a lavishly illustrated binding, Ian Hamilton's March was bound in red cloth matching the style of Churchill's first published book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force - fitting, as these were the first and last Churchill first editions published by Longmans, Green, and Co. While London to Ladysmith via Pretoria had swiftly published Churchill's dispatches in the wake of his capture and escape, for Ian Hamilton's March "the texts of the originally published letters were more extensively revised and four letters were included which had never appeared in periodical form" (Cohen, A8.1.a, Vol. I, p.105). Churchill effected these revisions while on board the passenger and cargo steamer Dunottar Castle, which was requisitioned as a troop ship, en route home to England. Arriving home from South Africa in July 1900, Churchill spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, where he won his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election". The British first edition of Ian Hamilton's March was published just a few weeks later. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.1.a, Woods/ICS A5(a), Langworth p.59

Price: US$500.00 + shipping

Condition: Very Good

Description: This is the British first edition, first printing, first issue of Churchill's fifth published book. Ian Hamilton's March was the second of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa during the Boer War. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted between the descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa and the British. Churchill, an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter, on 15 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later rendered him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill's first book of Boer War despatches, London to Ladysmith via Pretoria was published in England in mid-May 1900 and sold well. Ian Hamilton's March completes Churchill's coverage of the Boer War, publishing 17 letters to the Morning Post, spanning 31 March through 14 June 1900. The narrative in Ian Hamilton's March includes the liberation of the Pretoria prison camp where Churchill had been held. Though a companion and sequel to London to Ladysmith, it is notably different in appearance, content, and scarcity. The first printing saw only 5,000 copies - half as many copies as London to Ladysmith. Where Ladysmith bore a lavishly illustrated binding, Ian Hamilton's March was bound in red cloth matching the style of Churchill's first published book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force - fitting, as these were the first and last Churchill first editions published by Longmans, Green, and Co.

Arriving home from South Africa in July 1900, Churchill spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, where he won his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election". This British first edition of Ian Hamilton's March was published just a few weeks later. Here is the first edition, first printing. This copy is in respectable, very good condition. The red cloth binding is square and sound, but bears the usual darkening to the spine, some wear at the hinges, spine ends and corners, and moderate soiling to the front and rear covers. Nonetheless, the spine and front cover gilt remains bright and clearly legible. The contents are bright and tight. The original black endpapers are intact, as are all maps and plans, including the tipped-in folding map at page 409. The frontispiece and protective tissue covering are likewise intact. Spotting is very light in the main body of the text, a bit heavier at the prelims. A single inked owner name appears on the ffep.

Ian Hamilton's March was the second of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa during the Boer War.

We note minor wear at corners and wrinkling at spine ends, modest spine toning and some concavity to the spine, a two inch moisture stain at the rear hinge, and a very slight forward lean to the binding. The contents remain bright with a crisp feel. All maps and plans are present, as well as the frontispiece and tissue guard, and the original black endpapers are intact. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is primarily confined to the page edges and first few leaves, only occasionally intruding slightly into the blank inner text margins.

Winston S. Churchill. Ian Hamilton's March, finely bound by Bayntun-Riviere. Longmans, Green, & Co., London, 1900.

Price: US$550.00 + shipping

Description: This is the British first edition, second and final printing of Churchill's fifth published book, finely bound by the renowned Bayntun-Riviere bindery of Bath, England. The binding is half-brown calf over tan cloth boards with hubbed spine, red spine title label, green spine author label, gilt-decorated spine compartments, gilt top edge, head and foot bands, and marbled endpapers. Condition is near fine. The binding is square, tight, and unfaded with only trivial spine creasing and scuffs. The contents are well-suited to the fine binding, notably clean for the edition. We find only a trivial amount of spotting to the upper title page and a few pages within and the fore and bottom edges are clean, showing only modest age-toning. All maps and plans are intact, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard. Ian Hamilton's March was the second of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa during the Boer War. The first printing saw only 5,000 copies - half as many copies as London to Ladysmith, with this second and final printing adding only 1,700 copies. Though erroneously designated "Second Edition" on the title page, this was actually a second printing, virtually identical to the first and issued only a month later, in November 1900. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted between the descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa and the British. Churchill, an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post.

Bayntun-Riviere here proffer a considerable aesthetic upgrade to the original red cloth. While London to Ladysmith via Pretoria had swiftly published Churchill's dispatches in the wake of his capture and escape, for Ian Hamilton's March "the texts of the originally published letters were more extensively revised and four letters were included which had never appeared in periodical form" (Cohen, A8.1.a, Vol. I, p.104).

The tight and square binding is unusually bright and clean for the edition, with vivid color and gilt, superior spine presentation, and only minor wear to extremities. The cosmetic flaw that prevents our grading - and pricing - this copy higher is faint evidence that something was once taped across the lower spine. The discoloration is barely discernible on the spine and rear cover, only readily noticeable as a 2 x .75 inch strip of mild discoloration to the lower front cover. This would be consistent with an ex-library spine label, except for the fact that there are absolutely no ex-library markings. The only previous ownership marks are the decorative bookplate of "Aubrey P. Taylor" affixed to the front pastedown and the same name ("A. P. Taylor") inked to the half title with the date "1900". The contents remain bright with a crisp feel. All maps and plans are intact, as is the original frontispiece and tissue guard, as well as the original black endpapers. Moderate spotting appears substantially confined to the prelims and page edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.1.a, Woods/ICS A5(a), Langworth p.59

Condition: Near Fine

Description: Here is a collector-worthy copy of the U.S. first edition of Churchill's fifth book - the second of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted in South Africa between the descendants of Dutch settlers and the British. As an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, Churchill swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter - on 18 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill's first Boer War book, London to Ladysmith via Pretoria, contained 27 letters and telegrams to the Morning Post written between 26 October 1899 and 10 March 1900 and was published in England in mid-May. Ian Hamilton's March completes Churchill's coverage of the Boer War, comprising 17 letters to the Morning Post, spanning 31 March through 14 June 1900. While London to Ladysmith via Pretoria had swiftly published Churchill's dispatches in the wake of his capture and escape, for Ian Hamilton's March "the texts of the originally published letters were more extensively revised and four letters were included which had never appeared in periodical form" (Cohen, A8.1.a, Vol. I, p.105). Churchill effected these revisions while on board the passenger and cargo steamer Dunottar Castle which was requisitioned as a troop ship, en route home to England. Churchill arrived on 20 July 1900 and spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, capitalizing on his war status and winning his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election." The narrative in Ian Hamilton's March includes the liberation of the Pretoria prison camp where Churchill had been held and from which he had famously escaped. The title takes its name from General Sir Ian Hamilton's campaign from Bloemfontein to Johannesburg and Pretoria. Churchill would maintain a life-long friendship with Hamilton, who would be involved in the Gallipoli landings and to whom Churchill would sell his first country home. Published on 26 November 1900, the U.S. first edition was thus available for sale when Churchill arrived in New York on 8 December 1900 for his first North American lecture tour. The U.S. first edition saw only a single printing. The number sold is unclear, but seems to be fewer than 1,500. This American edition is thus considerably more scarce than the British first edition, of which more than 5,000 first printing copies were issued. Like the U.S. first edition of Ladysmith, the U.S. first edition of Ian Hamilton's March is bound in pebble grain red buckram which proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine. Offered here is a superior, collector-worthy example. The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square with vivid color, bright gilt. Wear is minimal, with the only flaw of note being some minor dimpling of the cloth on the blank lower portion of the spine. The contents are superlative - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. No spotting. No inscriptions. No age-toning. Bright top edge gilt. All maps and plans are present and pristine, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard.

Description: This is a notably clean and bright copy of the U.S. first edition of Winston Churchill's fifth published book. Ian Hamilton's March is the second and last of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. The U.S. first edition saw only a single printing. The number sold is unclear, but seems to be fewer than 1,500. This American edition is thus considerably scarcer than the British first edition, of which more than 5,000 first printing copies were issued. Like the U.S. first edition of London to Ladysmith, the U.S. first edition of Ian Hamilton's March is bound in pebble grain red buckram, which proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine. This copy is a noteworthy exception in near fine condition. The red cloth binding remains square, tight, and strikingly bright and clean, with both the red cloth and gilt retaining vivid hues with no fading or toning to the spine. We note only light wear to hinges, spine ends, and corners, and tiny bumps to the lower corners. The contents are likewise quite unusually bright. We find no spotting, no previous ownership marks, and no appreciable age-toning. Even the fore edges remain clean and the top edge gilt uniformly bright without scuffing or soiling. The frontispiece, tissue guard, and maps are all intact. The folding map at the end of the text shows trivial loss and browning to the blank right margins owing to a slight previous misfold that left these edges protruding from the text block. The misfold has been corrected. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted in South Africa between the descendants of Dutch settlers and the British. As an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, Churchill swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter - on 18 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill's first Boer War book, London to Ladysmith via Pretoria, contained 27 letters and telegrams to the Morning Post written between 26 October 1899 and 10 March 1900 and was published in England in mid-May. Ian Hamilton's March completes Churchill's coverage of the Boer War, comprising 17 letters to the Morning Post, spanning 31 March through 14 June 1900. While London to Ladysmith via Pretoria had swiftly published Churchill's dispatches in the wake of his capture and escape, for Ian Hamilton's March "the texts of the originally published letters were more extensively revised and four letters were included which had never appeared in periodical form" (Cohen, A8.1.a, Vol. I, p.105). Churchill effected these revisions while on board the passenger and cargo steamer Dunottar Castle, which was requisitioned as a troop ship, en route home to England. Churchill arrived on 20 July 1900 and spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, capitalizing on his war status and winning his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election." The narrative in Ian Hamilton's March includes the liberation of the Pretoria prison camp where Churchill had been held and from which he had famously escaped. The title takes its name from General Sir Ian Hamilton's campaign from Bloemfontein to Johannesburg and Pretoria. Churchill would maintain a life-long friendship with Hamilton, who would be involved in the Gallipoli landings and to whom Churchill would sell his first country home. Published on 26 November 1900, the U.S. first edition was thus available for sale when Churchill arrived in New York on 8 December 1900 for his first North American lecture tour.

Here is an unusually well preserved, near-fine example for collectors. The red cloth binding is highly unusual in that it suffers almost none of the scuffing and uneven coloration endemic to this edition. Most notably the spine remains absolutely uniform in color with bright gilt and only trivial wear limited to the spine corners. There is slight overall soiling, but this does not detract from the overall appearance and particularly impressive shelf presentation. The contents remain clean with no spotting. The sole previous ownership mark noted is the remnant of a mostly removed bookplate at the rear pastedown. The top edge gilt remains bright. The fore edge is modestly age-toned. The binding is very slightly loose at the front gutter but not enough to be called tender, with no damage to the binding integrity and no splitting of the endpapers. A very handsome copy, scarce thus. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.2, Woods/ICS A5(ca), Langworth p.61.
