Item #24214 While England Slept. Winston S. Churchill.

While England Slept

Putnams, NY, 1938, 3rd printing, 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. Book is tight and unworn, covers a deep blue shade, marred only by a small white spots on front where dj stuck from condensation. Top page edges a good deep even red, foredges very even and free of spots. Contents fine, no inscriptions. Dustwrapper is correct for this 3rd printing and different from the 1st, unclipped, good bright red on spine, some edge wear and cracks, only losses are two small 2 mm chunks from top of each joint. Far scarcer than a first. (ICS A44b.3). Item #24214

Price: $300.00
