Item #36627 The World Crisis, full set of six. Winston S. Churchill.

The World Crisis, full set of six

Scribner’s, NY, 1963-64, This set was issued by Scribner’s in the 60’s and 70’s. The text is unabridged and illustrations have been added. Bound in medium blue cloth, with pictorial dj’s printed red, blue, and black on white stock. Books are about 5.5 x 8.5 inches, similar to US firsts. Sales must have been slow as this set is far scarcer than its recent vintage would indicate. See Langworth p. 110-111. The final two volumes are simply called volumes V and VI, with no mention of The Aftermath or The Unknown War. A good value set for those wanting to read the entire work in a uniform edition with the added bonus of photos which were not in the first edition. A near fine set in exceptionally bright unfaded dustjackets. . Books are crisp, unmarked except blemishes on foredges of vol. 5, bookplate in vol. I only. The dustjackets are unclipped except vol. V, strong readable red on spines, some minor wear and losses at spine ends. Item #36627

Price: $400.00
