INDIA, Speeches and an Introduction

Thornton Butterworth, London, 1931, hardcover. First published in both orange wraps and orange cloth, the clothbound edition is far scarcer and came in two variants, with the title reading across, or down as this copy. Both are so scarce that I would be reluctant to assign a priority to either. . 5 x 7.25 inches, 143 pages. Churchill was strongly opposed to Gandhi and Independence for India in the 1930’s. This book publishes 10 of his speeches on the subject. It is now a scarce title lacking from many collections. Here is an exceptionally bright copy, the orange cloth is as bright as my jacketed reference copy. There are a few faint smudges on the cloth and the top page egdes are dirty. The other edges are clean and the there is no foxing anywhere. There are some nearly invisible signs of cleaning on the title page. The endpapers are exceptionally clean, so I suspect they have been replaced. This copy from the Harry Cahn- Bart Watt Collection (Sothebys 2002) (A38). Item #36767

Price: $2,750.00
