Savrola was Winston Churchill’s first and only novel; a statement of personal and political philosophy delivered as a work of dystopian fiction with a twist of romance. U.S. publication preceded the British issue by roughly ten days, rendering the American first edition the true first.
This is a very good copy of the First American edition. The cloth remains a deep blue, the gilt lettering is bright. The corners are sharp, the spine is just a touch frayed at the head and tail and the lower front corner is crunched.
The contents are fine and unfoxed, but the endpapers have been professionally replaced, front and rear.
A very nice example, with that caveat, and priced accordingly
