Arms and the Covenant

Harrap, London, 1938, 1st edition, An attractive binding by Harrap in dark blue cloth, gilt titles on spine, slightly larger than other Churchill titles of this era at 6 x 9 inches, top edges stained blue. Only one printing of 5000 copies, no reprints other than US edition. 466 pages, frontis portrait. 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...”. Unfortunately there are no modern reprints, so firsts are in constant demand. Book is exceptionally clean with clean covers and rich deep blue spine with bright gilt. Page tops a good strong blue, other edges free of spots. Contents clean and white other than the usal transfer on pages adjacent to endpapers. Dustwrapper is unclipped, bright unfaded spine. There are several areas on the jacket that have gone white, clealy some sort of book-pox. Superb shelf appearance. (A44a). Item #30356

Price: $2,000.00
