    More Information:

    Winston Spencer Churchill. Savrola. A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania. London: George Newnes, Limited, [1908]. First illustrated edition in the Newnes' Sixpenny Novels Illustrated series. Octavo. 128 pages. Two illustrated plates on coated paper. Various period advertisements preceding and following the novel. Magazine format with printed wrappers, the front cover bears a blue printed illustration of Savrola and Lucille, the rear cover an advertisement for Vinolia Soap. For a hundred year old pulp novel it has survived remarkably well with some soiling to the wrappers and an area of loss and a few closed tears along the edge of the rear cover, with small areas of wear at the spine ends. The contents are moderately toned as it be expected with this type of paper. Otherwise it is in very good copy of Churchill's only novel. Sold in a beautiful custom clamshell case.
