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 clean, tight, page edges even and free of spots, spine slightly lighter than covers. Top page edges a good unfaded blue. No names, contents very clean. Dustwrapper is unclipped, very bright, some edge wear with losses along spine ends, which are reinforced behind with old tape. (ICS A44a). Item #36561
