INDIA, Speeches and an Introduction

Thornton Butterworth, London, 1931, hardcover. First published in both orange wraps and orange cloth, the wraps edition is the one usually seen, although neither is common. . 5 x 7.25 inches, 143 pages. Churchill was strongly opposed to Gandhi and Independence for India in the 1930’s. This book publishes 10 of his speeches on the subject. It is now a scarce title lacking from many collections. This copy was originally sold in wraps as the rear wrap is bound into the plain orange cloth with which the book has been rebound. Blocked in black similar to the clothbound originals, this could fool the unwary, but properly described here. The binding being recent is fine, The title page is soiled and the first few pages have substantial foxing. This is a low cost alternative to an original clothbound first. (ICS A38). Item #10285

Price: $350.00
