London, Thoemmes Continuum, 2006, hardcover. At last, after 22 years of research, Ron Cohen’s definitive and comprehensive bibliography of Churchill’s writings is now published. This is without doubt the ultimate in bibliographic detail on Churchill’s works. The author has located and described in detail more than 350 books and pamphlets by Churchill, over 1200 articles, and some 1250 “letters to the editor”, plus contributions to over 700 other works. These are large volumes, nearly 7 x 10 inches.
I recommend this book to any collector whose interests go beyond the basic 50 books by Churchill. This is the ultimate reference to speech pamphlets, forewords and similar contributions, and magazine articles. It is also the final word on matters such as quantities published and questions of what edition came first. Set has had little use, several corners bimped and a verical slit on the spine of first volume. No markings, no names, no thumbing to page edges. (). Item #35476
