This is the fourth volume of Sir Winston Churchill's post-war speeches, covering the end of his period as Leader of the Opposition and his return to power after Labour's defeat in the General Election of 1951. The book contains 50 of Churchill's speeches from 1951 and 1952. Notably, it is the last volume of Churchill's postwar speeches published in the U.S. This first U.S. edition, only printing, is one of only 1,850 copies issued, so considerably more scarce than the British edition. Here is an ex-military library copy in a highly complete dust jacket. The book was the property of the United States Air Force Base Library at March Air Force Base in California. The green cloth covers are bright, tight, and square, with library numbers inked in black at the base of the spine and old cello tape stains on the front and rear covers where the dust jacket was once affixed with tape. The contents are bright and tight, but bear numerous USAF library stickers and ink stamps on the front and rear pastedowns and blank endpapers, as well as on the title page. The rear endpaper also has some scarring, likely from removal of a card pocket. The dust jacket is bright, clean, and highly complete, retaining the original $5.00 price on the front flap. Regrettably, the dust jacket is also laminated, and approximately 3/8 of an inch has been trimmed from the blank vertical edge of each flap. There is a library number sticker at the lower dust jacket spine. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A264.2, Woods A137(b). Langworth p.310. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 001635
