Beschreibung:

This is the British first revised and expanded edition, first printing, in dust jacket. This edition, published in 1938 soon after the first edition of 1937, added four new essays (Fisher, Parnell, Baden-Powell, and - of great interest - Roosevelt). As is the case with the first edition, first printing, the dust jacket for the 1938 revised edition is both elusive and desirable, and the binding quite prone to sunning and dulling in its absence. Great Contemporaries is Churchill's much-praised collection of insightful essays about leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. Churchill's piece about Hitler can be a shock to the modern ear, as it underscores his ability to write a balanced appraisal of his subject while expressing his earnest desire to avoid the war that he would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years later. Neville Chamberlain, perhaps Churchill’s most vexing political opponent at the time, wrote to Churchill on 4 October 1937 to say: "How you can go on throwing off these sparkling sketches with such apparent ease & such sustained brilliance… is a constant source of wonder to me. But the result is to give great pleasure and entertainment…" There is a reason this book is still in print today. It was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill's balanced and nuanced perspectives favorably contrast with many of today's more polemic writers. In the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill necessarily reveals much of his own character and perspective. Churchill's portrait of T.E. Lawrence, published here just a few years before the Second World War, might well have been written about the author rather than by him: "The impression of the personality of Lawrence remains living and vivid upon the minds of his friends, and the sense of his loss is in no way dimmed among his countrymen. All feel the poorer that he has gone from us. In these days dangers and difficulties gather upon Britain and her Empire, and we are also conscious of a lack of outstanding figures with which to overcome them. Here was a man in whom there existed not only an immense capacity for service, but that touch of genius which everyone recognizes and no one can define." (Great Contemporaries, p.164) While some of the subjects of Churchill's sketches have receded into history, many remain well-known and all remain compellingly drawn. This British first revised edition, first printing, is very good in a flawed dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and only trivial shelf wear to extremities. The spine gilt is a bit dulled, but the overall superior condition of the binding, as well as differential toning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps, confirms that this copy has spent life jacketed. The contents are bright and clean, as is the fore edge. We note some mild dust soiling to the top edge and only a hint of spotting confined to the top and bottom edges, but entirely absent within. Previous ownership marks are two inked names on the front free endpaper and a tiny Bradford bookseller’s sticker affixed to the lower front pastedown. The dust jacket shows losses to the spine ends and upper hinge intruding into the front face. Losses to the lower spine corners are of roughly .25 inch depth, those to the upper spine corners a maximum depth of 1.25 inches. The chief detraction of this dust jacket is a Christmas gift inscription ("To Father.") inked at an angle in six lines across the front face. Nonetheless, a scarce jacket which has protected the book beneath. Moreover, the inscription on the jacket has spared the volume itself and does not affect shelf presentation. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A105.3.a, Woods/ICS A43(b.1), Langworth p.182. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
