The Great War. Winston S. Churchill.

The Great War

George Newnes, London (1933-34), hardcover. The Great War is actually an abridged and heavily illustrated version of The World Crisis, which was originally issued as 26 fortnightly parts or magazines. Most copies were later bound in binding cases available from the publishers. This is the extra cost library binding in half dark red morocco. The leather spines are elaborately decorated in gilt with 5 gilt boxes between raised bands, with titling and exploding globe motifs. Printed on quality coated paper, the 1668 pages in total make 3 very heavy volumes, weighing a total of over 12 pounds ( 5.5 kg). This set shows some wear, mostly at the spine ends. Vol. I has a press clipping on the back of the frontis portrait. Page edges are uneven and off white. Far from fine, but an attractive leather bound set at a good price. (ICS A31d). Item #25298

Price: $225.00
