[Item #82520] My African Journey. Winston Churchill.

My African Journey

Hardcover, Norwalk, Connecticut: Easton Press, 1992. Near Fine. When Churchill was 31 and serving as the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies, he went to Africa - partly as a fact finding mission and partly for fun. He visitied what is today Kenya, Uganda, Somalia, Sudan, and Egypt. This book is his account of those travels. Bound in full dark red leather with real gold decorations. Luxury features include gilded page edges, acid neutral paper that is sewn (not glued) into the binding, raised bands on the spine, moire endpapers, and a sewn-in leather bookmark. I bought this book (and 89 other Eastons) from a wealthy Easton Press subscriber. Near Fine due to a very faint shadow of a removed bookplate on the front pastedown and a very minor blemish to the side page edge. Ships same or next business day very well protected in a box. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 134 pages. [Item #82520]

Price: $165.00
