Beschreibung:

This book comes from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is the first edition, second and final printing, in the softcover ("wraps") binding. India is a collection of 10 speeches made by Churchill, which constituted an important part of his campaign against the India Bill over which he broke with his party’s leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. While Churchill did not adopt an early progressive attitude toward relinquishing control over the crown jewel of Britain's colonial empire, it is instructive to remember that many of Churchill's dire warnings about Indian independence proved prophetic. Churchill had warned that too swift a British withdrawal from India would lead to bloody civil war and sectarian strife between Hindus and Muslims, Hindu domination, and destabilizing political balkanization of the subcontinent. All these predictions came to pass and, to a considerable extent, they persist to this day. This first edition, second printing is bound in the exact same style as the first printing and was issued in the same month as the first printing; it differs only in that it has green, rather than orange, wraps. Due to the fragile nature of a wraps edition, most surviving copies suffer significant wear, soiling, and spotting. Here is a superior copy for collectors in near fine condition. The binding remains square, complete, and firmly attached, with no losses, tears, or fading. Apart from a trivial hint of wear at the corners, the only exterior flaws are an inked first initial and last name to the upper front cover, a tiny stain to the right of the front cover title, and a faint .75 inch moisture stain to the lower front cover. The contents remain notably bright with no previous ownership marks and no internal spotting. A hint of spotting and light soiling is confined to the page edges. An extremely well-preserved copy overall. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A92.1.e, Woods/ICS A38(a.2), Langworth p.150. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Buchbeschreibung Dragonwyck Publishing, Hopkinton, New Hampshire, 1990. Hardcover. First U.S. edition. This is the first U.S. edition, only printing. Condition is truly fine, immaculate in a pristine dust jacket. First published in 1931, India is a collection of 10 speeches by Churchill as part of his campaign against the India Bill, over which he broke with his party’s leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. Churchill spent formative time as a young 19th century cavalry officer fighting on the northwest Indian frontier, about which he would write his first published book. He did not adopt an early progressive attitude toward relinquishing control over the crown jewel of Britain's colonial empire. Nonetheless, it is instructive to remember that many of Churchill's dire warnings about Indian independence proved prophetic. Churchill had warned that too swift a British withdrawal from India would lead to bloody civil war and sectarian strife between Hindus and Muslims, Hindu domination, and destabilizing political balkanization of the subcontinent. All these predictions came to pass and, to a considerable extent, persist today. The 1931 British first edition is most commonly found in orange paper wraps. A much rarer variant was issued in a hardcover binding. This U.S. first edition of 1990 is a beautiful and exacting reproduction of the hardcover variant of the British first edition. Of note, the binding size, color, and print are exceptionally close to the original clothbound 1931 first edition. The contents add a new foreword by Manfred Weidhorn. Unfortunately the remaining stock of this excellent reproduction was destroyed by fire and there are no other such modern reprints. Here is a notably fine copy. The binding is flawless and completely without wear or soiling. The contents are beautifully crisp and bright. The orange dust jacket, highly prone to sunning, shows absolutely no color shift between the spine and faces. The sole sign of any previous handling or ownership is a decorative bookplate affixed to the front pastedown. The dust jacket is protected with a removable, archival quality clear cover.

The green wraps binding remains virtually complete, with only fractional loss at the spine heel. We note modest spine toning, mild wear to hinges and corners, and creasing to the lower front cover corner. The contents are free of previous ownership marks. We note a large patch of spotting to the title page, but spotting is otherwise light, confined to page edges and a few blank inner margins.

The green wraps binding is square and intact with no spine toning. The lack of vertical spine creasing indicates that it is unread. We note light wear to extremities, the most notable being a fractional loss at the lower front hinge. Soiling is minimal, primarily two instances on the front cover. The contents remain respectably bright with no previous ownership marks. Spotting is light for the edition, primarily confined to the page edges and the first and final leaves.
