The World Crisis 1911-1918

Odhams Press, London, 1939, hardcover. This two volume set from Odhams contains the complete unabridged text of the original four volumes with the revisions and new material from the 1931 abridgement. The quantity and quality of maps are reduced however. The volumes are short (5.5 x 8.5 inches) and thick with 1477 pages in the two volumes. Bound in medium blue cloth, blind stamped bust of Churchill and signature on cover, gilt titles on spine, blue stained top edges. This set includes the truly rare dustjackets. Books are a deep rich blue shade on the spines with shiny gilt titles. Page tops are blue but darker on vol II which has a 1942 date whereas vol. I is 1939. Both DJs still have the original 8/6 orice on the flaps. The jackets are far from perfect with sunned spines, some losses at spine ends ands some old paper reinforcements along inside of edges that I have made no effort to remove. (A31f). Item #35065

Price: $350.00
