NEW Catalogue 149 The Reference Collection part 2 War and Post-war Speeches Ready for download
Having past the dreaded 65, it seems the right time to liquidate my Reference Collection whilst my health remains good, rather than leave it for others to deal with. This will be a long process as I have over 1500 books by Churchill on my shelves. This second catalogue lists the contents of two bays of 7 shelves each. It consists mostly of the War Speeches and the Postwar speeches, in the 4 English language editions, as well as numerous translations. Over the years I constantly upgraded and retained the best copy that passed through my hands. Click here to download, or you can request a printed copy.
Another large collection arrives
We recently purchaes a large collection of Churchill material and it was delivered vis the PODS system (Portable On Demand Storage) This is basically a smaller version of a sea container which was dropped in the driveway for me to unload. Here are pictures that show the POD being delivered and then the boxes stacked in the warehouse, blocking access to all else. The large flat is a Churchill framed print.
The collection is heavy on modern books, ceramics, and coins/medals. It shoul be good for 2 or more catalogues.I mailed my taxes off to the accountant on March 19th, so will now be able to resume listing more Churchill books.

I have just received delivery of a massive collection. It includes every edition of all the books by Churchill, with scarce dustjackets going back to 1920. On nearly all the books, the condition is fine. I will commence the dispersal of this collection with Catalogue 145 later in September.
Guide to Books by Churchill
highly popularfeature of this site begins with a checklist
of all the book length works by Churchill. Each title on the
list then links to a page about that title with a brief discussion
of the various editions, with a colour photo of each of these
editions. Clicking on any of these descriptions or pictures
will then give a current listing of copies of that edition
in inventory, with the usual description and colour illustration.
We have without question the largest stock of Churchill material
anywhere. There are over 5000 items in stock, covering the
whole range of Churchill collecting:
We do not simply have a copy of each title by Churchill; there
is usually a shelf or more for each title. MARLBOROUGH has
14 shelves, overflowing onto the floor. This enables us to
turn "wants lists" into satisfied customers.
