Collector's Guide

Ian Hamilton’s March concluded Churchill’s Boer War narrative begun with London to Ladysmith. It features the triumphant liberation of his former-POW campmates in Pretoria, South Africa. The English and American editions were both bound in red cloth but the American edition is a match to the American edition of London to Ladysmith.


This is a good copy only of the First Englsh edition. The cloth has good color but is shelfworn, with faint scuff marks on the front cover. The original black endpoapers are intact. There is dampstaining to the lower edges of the prelims, with traces of a blue ink affecting the lower edge of the front endpaper and the half-title. The prelims are also lightly foxed but the contents are clean.
