Beschreibung

This is the second British edition of this elusive Churchill title, published 60 years after the British first edition. In 1904, Churchill quit the Conservative Party and joined the Liberals, beginning a dynamic chapter in his political career that saw him champion progressive causes and be branded a traitor to his class. In 1910, when The People's Rights was published, Winston Churchill was a powerful political force and a member of the Cabinet. From December 3-11, 1909 Churchill was on the campaign trail on behalf of the Liberals. The People's Rights, published in 1910, is a distillation of these nine days of speeches, criticizing the House of Lords (which had rejected the Liberal Government's budget, thus precipitating the campaign) and championing Free Trade, a graduated income tax, luxury tax, and surtaxes on unearned income. Churchill's efforts were not wasted; as a result of the election, the Liberals would achieve a slim majority and passage of their budget. The bright orange dust jacket of this first edition echoes the first British wraps edition of 1910 and, just like that first edition, is prone to fading and soiling. Here is a near fine copy in a very good dust jacket. The brown cloth binding is clean and tight with just light wear to extremities. The contents are clean and bright. We note no spotting or previous ownership marks. The dust jacket has a neatly price-clipped lower front flap, but is otherwise complete. We note minor toning to the jacket spine and light soiling to the blank rear face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
