A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania.London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1900 Stock Code: 32227
CHURCHILL'S ONLY NOVELFirst UK edition, first impression, one of 1,500 copies printed. The UK edition was delayed by magazine serialisation of the story, so that the US edition in book form was actually published first. Scarce in the original cloth binding, this novel represents the author's only attempt at full-length fiction. It is "a melodramatic tale of a liberal revolution in an autocratic Mediterranean state: the hero, Savrola, was a compound of himself and Lord Randolph" (ODNB).
Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt.
Light foxing to fore edges and preliminaries, edges and corners rubbed, light stain to spine.
