This is a unique and interesting scholarly work "traces Churchill's use of proverbs, folklore, and famous expression in his writings and speeches." From the authors: "This work consists of an introductory essay on Churchill's use of proverbs, a numbered list of the editions of his works consulted, and a key-word index, which is the heart of the book. An appendix with three tables provides an overview of the frequency with which Churchill employed various proverbial locutions and a summary of their distribution among his writings. Proverbs are arranged in the key-word index according to the most significant word, usually a noun, in the text." Despite criticizing some flaws in the author's knowledge of Churchill's writing and a less than streamlined reference system, bibliographer Curt Zoller calls this: "A useful book, demonstrating how Churchill's photographic memory helpd him cast back for proverbs in his writings and speeches." Here is an immaculate, as-new copy with flawless binding and contents free of any signs of handling or use. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A594. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 002944
