Item #23859 While England Slept. Winston S. Churchill.

While England Slept

Putnam’s, NY, 1938, 1st American edition, hardcover. This is the US title for Arms and the Covenant, a very appropriate title, which was probably too painful a reminder for the home audience. An important collection of Churchill’s speeches during the period 1928-1938 which warn all too clearly of the coming war. The final paragraph of the last speech sums it up “Now the victors are the vanquished...” Bound in dark blue cloth, blocked silver on red, 404 pages. Nice first in DJ. Book is tight, not worn, spine well rounded and bright, edges unspotted, page tops still a nice red shade, discreet owner inscription on free endpaper. Dustwrapper is unclipped, slight losses at spine ends, some cracks on front cover, some areas on spine rubbed to white. (ICS A44b). Item #23859

Price: $500.00
