This is the sixth of Churchill's seven war speech volumes, containing speeches from January to August 1945. Having done so much to win the war, Churchill faced frustration of his postwar plans when his wartime government fell to Labor in the General Election of July 1945. His final speech in this volume - a review of the war delivered on 16 August 1945 to the House of Commons - is delivered as Leader of the Opposition rather than as Prime Minister. The British first editions of Churchill's wartime speech volumes 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, fading, and wear, so the passage of time shows on most surviving first editions. Here is a very good copy in a very good dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is immaculate with square corners, bright gilt, and virtually no wear. The contents are bright and tight with no inscriptions, but there is minor spotting to the prelims and heavier spotting at the text block edges. The unclipped dust jacket is bright and unfaded wth unusually vivid color. Of note, there is still strong purple color at the base of the spine, which on this edition is almost always faded to gray. The dust jacket shows light overall wear at the extremities and hinges, as well as a .25 inch triangular chip at the upper left corner of the front face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A223.1.a, Woods/ICS A112(ab), Langworth p.234. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 000985
