Notes

First US edition, decidedly uncommon, having been issued in a surprisingly small print run of a mere 1, 040 copies; Churchill contributed a new introduction ("Nearly thirty-five years have passed since this book was written, and I am very glad that it is now to take a renewed lease of life"). "From the date of its first publication in 1899, in two volumes, The River War had continued to find an eager readership" (Martin Gilbert, Winston S. Churchill, Volume V Companion Part 2, p. 430). An exceptional copy in the elusive and eye-catching dust jacket.
