This interesting little book publishes "Chartwell Bulletins" numbers 1-12 from Winston Churchill to his wife, Clementine, written between 1 January and 13 April 1935 while Clementine was on a cruise. Also included are Churchill's letter to his wife of 30 January 1935 and telegrams exchanged between them spanning 8 March 1935 through 22 April 1935. This correspondence is published separately here for the first time, supplemented by additional notes prepared by the editor (and Churchill's official biographer) Sir Martin Gilbert, as well as illustrations. The letters known as the "Chartwell Bulletins" (the name given to them by Churchill) were Winston’s way of communicating news to Clementine about his beloved home while she was absent. These Chartwell Bulletins are "full accounts of his life and activities in the house and farm" at Chartwell, which was his vital sanctuary during the "wilderness years" of the 1930s. At Chartwell he was by turns father, husband, painter, landscaper, and bricklayer. And of course Chartwell served Churchill as "my factory" as he turned out an incredible volume of writing. The dialogue recorded herein is captivating, personal, as ranging in scope and interest as the author, and revealing about both the man himself and life at Chartwell. This is commonly seen as a 64 page softcover, of which 3,000 copies were printed. Far different are the 50 copies that were bound in full red leather for major supporters of the International Churchill Society. These 50 copies feature gilt arms and print on the front cover, gilt page edges, and marbled endpapers. They were supplied in plain glassine dustwrappers. There is a Foreword by Richard M. Langworth and a Preface from the Editor, Martin Gilbert, as well as the considerable footnotes which Gilbert "carefully reviewed, amended and amplified" for this edition. The edition’s illustrations are also worthy of note; Churchill’s daughter, Mary Soames, "loaned original family photos from her own and others’ collections, some never before published, four annotated in her father’s own hand." Condition is as-new, pristine with no discernible wear or use. Even the original glassine wrapper is complete and nearly perfect, with only a few tiny short, closed tears at extremities, having admirably done its job protecting the book beneath. Laid in is the 15 January 1990 typed, signed letter presenting this copy to the recipient, signed by International Churchill Society Executive Director Richard M. Langworth.
