While England Slept

Putnam’s, NY, 1938, 1st American edition, This is the US title for Arms and the Covenant, a very appropriate title, which was probably too painful a reminder for the home audience. 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...” Bound in dark blue cloth, blocked silver on red, 404 pages. A fine crisp book is a very bright and attractive dustjacket. Book is unmarked, binding tight, no names, no spotting, top edges a good strong red. Dustjacket is remarkably unfaded on red spine, unclipped, has a long tear at top right of front cover and a piece gone at top of front joint. Repairs from behind are seen in photo. (A44b). Item #50127
