Beschreibung:

Here is a full jacketed set of British first edition, first printings of Churchill's seven war speeches volumes. 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 indispensable 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. This full first edition, first printing set features very good or better volumes in very good dust jackets. The blue cloth bindings remain square and tight, with bright spine gilt and only occasional light wear to extremities. The contents all remain bright, with minor spotting primarily confined to the page edges and the first and final pages of the first and fifth volumes. The only previous ownership marks we find are a wartime gift inscription in The End of the Beginning front free endpaper ("To Isabel | From Dan | July 43"), a wartime ink stamp on the Onwards to Victory front pastedown (G. Vivian Davies | 11 Apr 1945), and tiny Cardiff bookseller’s sticker on the lower Secret Session Speeches front pastedown. Victory is first state, denoted by incorrect pagination at page 177. All seven first printing dust jackets are unclipped, retaining their original front flap prices, and respectably bright, retaining good spine color. All seven jackets show typical soiling and wear, with some chip losses to extremities. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers.
