Beschreibung

This is the third of Churchill's five volumes of post-war speeches. It contains speeches made during 1949-1950 - during Churchill's period as Leader of the Opposition before returning to the premiership in 1951. This book was published in America only after Churchill returned to power for his second stint as Prime Minister, since before then the publisher lacked confidence in the U.S. market appeal of another volume of Churchill speeches. This first American edition is considerably more scarce than the British edition; only 2,000 copies were printed, in contrast to 8,200 copies of the British edition. Here is a near-fine copy of the U.S. first edition, only printing, near-fine in a very good dust jacket. The brown cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and virtually no wear. The contents are clean with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. The page edges show slight dust soiling to the top edge and a little incidental soiling. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original $5.00 front flap price. The red dust jacket spine of this edition proved highly susceptible to sunning. This example has a modestly sunned jacket spine, but retains more red color than usual with the gold and white spine lettering still clearly legible. Losses are small, confined to fractional chipping at spine ends, and two .25 inch chips at the upper front face - one at the corner and one near the hinge. There is a .75 inch closed tear with some associated wrinkling at the upper front face near the hinge and a .5 inch closed tear at the lower front face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A255.2, Woods/ICS A130(b), Langworth p.302. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 002230
