FIRST PRINTING OF THE SILVER LIBRARY EDITION
Responding to numerous proofing errors in the first edition of Malakand, Winston Churchill quickly prepared a new revised edition that restored the correct text as he’d originally intended it. Issued January 1899 in the publisher Longmans’ low-priced “Silver Library” series, this second edition constitutes the book’s definitive rendering.
