The War Speeches of the Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill, 3 volumes

Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1953, This collected edition of Churchill’s war speeches has much to recommend it. There are five additional speeches lacking from the wartime volumes, and there is now an index, a most helpful addition. the production standard is far higher. This American edition was produced from 500 sets of English sets sent over. With such an incredibly small issue, and most sets sold to Libraries, thus has become a minor modern rarity. Less attractive than the English, they are bound in black spines over red cloth sides with gilt stamping on the spines only. Books are crisp and unworn, gilt unusually bright, top edges still yellow, no foxing. Dustwrappers are unclipped, good bright spines, but edge worn, and all heavily taped with magic tape, barely visible when in plastic protectors. (ICS A136b). Item #23587

Price: $750.00
