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 fine copy of the First American edition. The cloth color is exceedingly bright, the binding is crisp and tight, the gilt topstain and gilt stamping sparkle. The spine has perhaps dimmed ever so modestly. The contents are fine and unfoxed.
