Beschreibung:

This full set of seven British first editions of Churchill’s war speeches is finely bound and in beautiful condition. The bindings feature three-quarter red morocco over red cloth boards with generous leather corners, raised and gilt-ruled spine bands, lion rampant device in spine compartments, gilt rule transitions, head and foot bands, gilt top edges, and laid paper endsheets. During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of historical note - Member of Parliament for more than half a century, distinguished soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, Nobel Prize winner, painter. But Churchill's enduring preeminence owes most to his indispensible leadership during the Second World War, when his soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world. Of Churchill, Edward R. Murrow said: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle." Between 1941 and 1946, Churchill's war speeches were published in seven individual volumes. The British first editions are visually striking, but were printed on cheap wartime paper, bound in coarse cloth, and wrapped in bright, fragile dust jackets. They proved highly susceptible to spotting, soiling, and fading, so the passage of time has been hard on most surviving first editions. Here is a beautiful alternative to original bindings - seven British first editions, bound in uniform burgundy red morocco over marbled boards. The bindings feature raised spine bands, gilt spine decoration and print, and double blind rule transitions. All contents are first edition, first printing. Of note, the beautifully crisp contents of Into Battle are not only first printing, but first state (denoted by pagination missing at pages 78 & 294) and Victory is likewise first state, with page 177 mispaginated. The bindings are in flawless condition with no signs of wear or use. The contents are bright with no previous ownership marks. The spotting endemic to the cheap, wartime paper is mostly confined to page edges and the prelims of the sixth volume.
