THOUGHTS AND ADVENTURES is a collection of essays by Churchill on various subjects, which had appeared previously in periodicals. The book was first published in 1932 by Thornton Butterworth, and is readily identified by its olive brown cloth.The first edition is not scarce, but fine copies seldom seen, and dustwrappers very scarce. All subsequent impressions of the first edition are bound in a dark green. The Keystone Library, later in the 1930's and these are the best chance for a pre-war dustwrapper. Like MY EARLY LIFE. it was later reprinted by Macmillan and Odhams Press. There were no US reprints other than those from specialist library publishers. These are scarce, although I occasionally can offer the edition from Ayer Publishers. The title was out of print for many years until Leo Cooper released a new edition in 1990, which also was licensed for the Norton hardback in the USA, and the Mandarin paperback, the first and only paperback edition.
