Item #36452 Parliamentary Debates 20 August 1940. Winston S. Churchill.

Parliamentary Debates 20 August 1940

London, HMSO, 1940, This is the Hansard issue which publishes Churchill's statement to the House on the War Situation of this date, 180 columns, blue paper covers. This is the first appearance of one of Churchill's best known speeches in which he refers to how much is owed "so few" , and concludes with his comment on US relations, "Like the Mississippi, Let it Roll...." The back and forth discussions with other members following the speech are fascinating. The later individual issue by HMSO now regularly sells in NYC for over a grand. This is far scarcer. Usual rust around staples, some toning on covers. (). Item #36452
