Marlborough: His Life and Times, half morocco. Winston S. Churchill.

Marlborough: His Life and Times, half morocco

Harrap, London, (1938), hardcover. This set was produced after all 4 volumes were completed in 1938, so at that time the first two volumes were reprinted, so the sheets used were reprints of vols I and II and the first printings of vols III and IV, so this lovely set will not appeal to those who put "firstness" before all else. The books are bound in medium blue leather spines with matching leather corners over blue cloth boards. Top edges are gilt, and head and tail bands included. The spines are elaborately decorated in gilt, with 6 panels having decorative boxes with devices in 4 and titling in two, and then a small strip at the base with volume number. This set shows little wear cand has good unfaded spine colour. Foredges are off white but unspotted, contents clean. The half title of each volume has transfer browning and a gift inscription dated 1947. (ICS A40aa). Item #30305

Price: $600.00
