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.
