Item #24394 The Second World War, 6 volume set. Winston S. Churchill.

The Second World War, 6 volume set

Thomas Allen, Toronto, 1948-53, 1st Canadian edition, hardcover. The first Canadian edition of Churchill’s memoirs of World War II. Similar to the US edition, but with a deep red cloth binding that is more satisfying. Far scarcer than American editions, this set is underrated by collectors. Books are all clean with bright gilt, all correct firsts with year on title page. Only spots noted were on top edges of vol. V. No names or inscriptions. Dustwrappers are all unclipped, good colours on spine, although vol II is slightly sunned. Vol. I has lost a 10 x 19 mm piece at top of ftont jointVol. IV has wear at base of spine, loss to 2 mm. This is an attractive, but not quite fine set. (ICS A123ab). Item #24394
