Beschreibung

This important Churchill title includes 82 newspaper articles focused on foreign affairs written by Churchill between March 1936 and May 1939, many of them containing his warnings and predictions about Nazi Germany. As a measure of Churchill's prescience and ultimate vindication, upon publication, Labour leader Clement Attlee, a political opponent who would replace Churchill as Prime Minister in 1945, wrote to Churchill: "It must be a melancholy satisfaction to you to see how right you were." Others were even more blunt. Sir Desmond Morton, military officer, government official, and appeasement opponent, wrote to Churchill: "Many years on, historians will read this and your speeches in Arms and the Covenant. They will wonder but I doubt they will decide what devil of pride, unbelief, selfishness or sheer madness possessed the English people that they did not rise as one man" and "call on you to lead them." Less than a year after publication, in May 1940 Churchill would become Prime Minister. Here is the first edition, fourth and final printing, issued only six months after the first printing. This is a very good copy in a good dust jacket. Of note, the fourth printing dust jacket is identical to the first printing dust jacket. The green cloth binding is tight, clean, and square with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. The only exterior flaws noted are a few tiny spots of toning corresponding with minor jacket losses at the spine ends. The contents are crisp, clean, and bright with no inscriptions. The book feels unread. Although the top and fore edges are spotted, internal spotting appears confined to just faint traces in the prelims. The dust jacket is unclipped and substantially complete, but far from fine. There are losses at the spine ends, overall toning and staining to the spine, chipping and wrinkling at the top edge of the rear face, soiling of the rear face, and spotting at the front flap fold. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A111.1.d, Woods/ICS A45(a.4), Langworth p.197. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 001863
