Arms and the Covenant in yellow DJ

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. A clean bright copy in the scarce red on yellow dustwrapper. The first issue was a blue dustwrapper, but later the book was wrapped in a yellow dw printed red with a reduced price of 7/6. This copy of great interest as it is unclipped and has the price and also has an owners inscription date October 1940, so time when the variant dj came out is narrowed. Book has overall brown cast on foredges . Dustwrapper is faded on spine and worn and wrinkled at edges, and has lost an 8 mm hole where the front flap turns in near bottom. (ICS A44a). Item #36611

Price: $1,250.00
