The War Speeches of the Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill, 3 volumes

Cassell, London, 1951-52, 1st editions, This collected edition of Churchill’s war speeches has much to recommend it. There are minor differences in the selection of speeches included from the original 7 wartime volumes, as detailed in Cohen. The production standard is far higher. The books are larger at 6 x 10 inches, bound in heavy navy buckram, completely reset with generous margins, on a better grade of paper. Woods states that only 4740 sets were produced, so this can be a very elusive title. Original blue cloth bindings have good colour and very bright gilt. Vol 3 has some faint matks on front cover. Vol 2 has some foxing on endpapers, vol3 has a bookplate on front pastedown. Dustwrappers are all correct firsts, tanned on spines, wear and losses at spine ends. Vol, 1 has several long closed tears on front cover, barely visible in photos. (A136a). Item #32380
