FIRST ENGLISH HARDCOVER EDITION, BOUND IN LEATHER
In his Churchill bibliography, Ronald Cohen reveals that this hardcover (“cased”) edition consisted of only 100 copies, bound on 20 December 1909, two weeks before the softcover edition was bound. “It is, at least, very clear,” writes Cohen, “that only a few such copies were offered for sale and that they are extremely scarce.”
This is a beautifully preserved example of the First State, per Cohen (missing pagination for page 71, with an Appendix and Index at rear).
