Beschreibung

This is the first edition, first printing in dust jacket. Churchill's collection of 23 engaging essays on an incredibly wide variety of subjects was first published in 1932. It has been called "The broadest range of Churchill's thought between two hard covers" and reflects the two qualities that so characterize Churchill's life - a remarkable breadth of both mind and life experience. From the original front flap blurb: "Whether he is dealing with personal reminiscences, or telling us his views on any subject under the sun, Mr. Churchill stamps the page with his own vivid personality." In a 31 May 1932 letter to his publisher about the book, Churchill characterized it thus: ".although there is no one single theme, it has some of the best things in it I have ever written." The khaki cloth unique to the first printing of this edition is notoriously prone to scuffing, wear, and soiling, the contents proved highly susceptible to spotting, and the first printing dust jacket has become quite scarce. This copy is very good plus in a nearly very good dust jacket. The binding is tight and clean with bright gilt and sharp corners. The scuffing endemic to the first printing khaki cloth is modest. The contents remain crisp and bright, with spotting primarily confined to the first few pages and page edges. The dust jacket is unclipped. The front and rear faces are complete and notably clean, with just an incidental stray ink mark to the lower front face below the author's name. The spine is only lightly toned, with a roughly one inch x .5 inch triangular loss at the spine head, fractional chipping and some soiling at the base of the spine, and a tiny chip at the midpoint of the front hinge. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A95.1.a, Woods/ICS A39(aa.1), Langworth p.156. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 003071
