Beschreibung:

H.M.S.O. edition, only printing. This is one of Churchill's most famous speeches, occasioned by the Battle of Britain and honoring the RAF pilots who almost single-handedly prevented Nazi invasion of England. Churchill encapsulated and immortalized the struggle when he uttered the words: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." The famous bibliographic reference Printing and the Mind of Man, which surveys the impact of the printed word on Western Civilization, singles out this edition of this speech. Printed deep red on light gray paper wraps and wire stitched, this speech pamphlet measures 9.75 inches x 6 inches and is 16 pages in length. Prices of this edition have soared in recent years. Here is a respectable, complete copy in nearly very good condition. The gray paper covers are complete with slight wear at the upper at the corners, light overall creasing, and a .5 inch split at the upper spine. Both bindings staples are present and firmly intact with only light corrosion. The covers bear very light spotting to the upper third and there is an abrasion below the title on the front cover. The contents remain bright with no ownership markings and no spotting, just a light triangular crease to the lower front corner and slight wear at the upper corner. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A131.1, Woods A60(a), Printing and the Mind of Man (PMM) 424. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Buchbeschreibung His Majesty's Stationary Office (H.M.S.O.), The Baynard Press, London, 1940. Pamphlet. First edition. This is the first edition of one of Churchill's most famous speeches. Churchill's speech to Parliament of August 20th, 1940 was occasioned by the Battle of Britain and famously honored the RAF pilots who almost single-handedly prevented Nazi invasion of England. Churchill encapsulated and immortalized the struggle when he uttered the words: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." The famous bibliographic reference Printing and the Mind of Man, which surveys the impact of the printed word on Western Civilization, singles out this edition of this speech. Printed deep red on light gray paper wraps and wire stitched, this speech pamphlet measures 9.75 inches x 6 inches and is 16 pages in length. Prices of this edition have soared in recent years. Given the fragility of the edition, most copies understandably suffer from significant wear, soiling, tanning, and spotting. Here is a good copy, complete but showing customary age and wear. The gray wraps are complete with light overall soiling and spotting, creased corners, and partial splits at the upper and lower spine. Both binding staples are intact and secure and the covers remain attached, despite a lower spine split that extends half an inch past the lower binding staple. There is a small but crude filing hole at the top left corner of the front cover. The contents remain clean and reasonably bright with no previous ownership marks. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A131.1, Woods A60(a), Printing and the Mind of Man (PMM) 424. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 004780

Buchbeschreibung His Majesty's Stationary Office (H.M.S.O.), The Baynard Press, London, 1940. Pamphlet. First edition. This is the first edition of one of Churchill's most famous wartime speeches. Churchill's speech to Parliament of August 20th, 1940 was occasioned by the Battle of Britain and famously honored the RAF pilots who almost single-handedly prevented Nazi invasion of England. Churchill encapsulated and immortalized the struggle when he uttered the words: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." The famous bibliographic reference Printing and the Mind of Man, which surveys the impact of the printed word on Western Civilization, singles out this edition of this speech. Printed deep red on light gray paper wraps and wire stitched, this speech pamphlet measures 9.75 inches x 6 inches and is 16 pages in length. Prices of this edition have soared in recent years. Given the fragility of the edition, most copies understandably suffer from significant wear, soiling, tanning, and spotting. This copy is a crisp survivor, uncreased and quite clean internally, marred only by exterior cosmetics. The gray card wraps retain a notably crisp feel, firmly attached with only a hint of wear to corners and no loss, tears, or even creases. What leads us to grade this copy as only "good plus" instead of near fine is significant spotting to the front cover (lighter to the rear cover), modest rusting of the staples, and previous owner initials in pencil at the upper left front cover corner. The contents are notably crisp and clean with no internal ownership marks. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A131.1, Woods A60(a), Printing and the Mind of Man (PMM) 424.

Buchbeschreibung His Majesty's Stationary Office (H.M.S.O.), The Baynard Press, London, 1940. Pamphlet. First edition. This is collector-worthy copy of the first edition of one of Churchill's most famous wartime speeches. Churchill's speech to Parliament of August 20th, 1940 was occasioned by the Battle of Britain and famously honored the RAF pilots who almost single-handedly prevented Nazi invasion of England. Churchill encapsulated and immortalized the struggle when he uttered the words: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." The famous bibliographic reference Printing and the Mind of Man, which surveys the impact of the printed word on Western Civilization, singles out this edition of this speech. Printed deep red on light gray paper wraps and wire stitched, this speech pamphlet measures 9.75 inches x 6 inches and is 16 pages in length. Prices of this edition have soared in recent years. Given the fragility of the edition, most copies understandably suffer from significant wear, soiling, tanning, and spotting. This copy is certainly not fine, but nonetheless better preserved than most we see, approaching very good plus condition. The gray card covers remain complete and firmly attached with no losses or tears. Both binding staples are intact and neither shows any corrosion. We note only light soiling and spotting to the covers, which nonetheless show no apparent toning. The contents are clean with no previous ownership marks. We find only a hint of faint spotting confined to the first and final pages and a wrinkle to the bottom edges of pages 9-16 that is clearly an artefact of the original printing. The pamphlet is protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A131.1, Woods A60(a), Printing and the Mind of Man (PMM) 424.
