Item #16759 Marlborough: His Life and Times. Winston S. Churchill.

Marlborough: His Life and Times

Harrap, London, (1939), hardcover. The Limited Presentation edition, 4 volumes, 1939. Not to be confused with signed limited edition. This is a remainder binding done in 1939 with left over sheets from the first edition. Vol. I was reprinted for this edition, but vols III & IV appear to be first editions. This set was bound in a deep purple cloth, blocked in silver. Unfortunately, the dyes proved extremely sensitive to light, and virtually all, even those with jackets, have faded, often severely. This edition is of interest to completists, but also offers a low cost opportunity to have the original 4 volume work. A superb fine set in dustwrappers. Original cloth is a strong unfaded purple, no names, bindings tight, edges even. Dustwrappers are unclipped, very bright, some reinforcing behind spines, just a few tiny chips. (A40ad). Item #16759

Price: $1,750.00
