Beschreibung:

The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - seventeen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. This is the second volume of The War Papers, which are the companion document volumes accompanying Volume VI of Churchill's Official Biography. This volume contains documents from May 1940, the month that Churchill became Prime Minister and Germany invaded France and the low countries, through December 1940, with Britain having fought off the immediate threat of Nazi invasion in the Battle of Britain, but nonetheless weak, isolated, and starved for supplies by the U-boat menace. There were both British and U.S. editions. They are nearly identical in appearance and both are now out of print. Here is the U.S. edition, very good plus in a fine dust jacket. The red cloth binding is bright and clean with sharp corners and only trivial shelf wear at the bottom edge. There is a slight concavity at the head of the spine (common, owing to the weight of the text block). The contents are clean and bright, free of any ownership markings, spotting, or soiling. The unclipped dust jacket is immaculate - crisp, clean, and unfaded, with no losses, tears, or wear. The dust jacket has been protected since purchase in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

Buchbeschreibung William Heinemann Ltd., London, 1994. Hardcover. First edition, only printing. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - seventeen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. This is the British first edition of the second volume of The War Papers, which are the companion document volumes accompanying Volume VI of Churchill's Official Biography. This volume contains documents from May 1940, the month that Churchill became Prime Minister and Germany invaded France and the low countries, through December 1940, with Britain having fought off the immediate threat of Nazi invasion in the Battle of Britain, but nonetheless weak, isolated, and starved for supplies by the U-boat menace. This British first edition is considerably more scarce and highly sought than the U.S. first edition, which is similar in appearance. These Heinemann War Papers volumes - particularly Volumes 1 & 2 - seem destined to rise inexorably in price just like the now quite expensive Volume V Companions. This copy is very good in a very good dust jacket. The red cloth binding is square and tight with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and minimal wear confined to extremities, but a bit concave at the upper spine from the weight of the massive text block. The contents are nonetheless bright and clean internally with no spotting, no previous ownership marks, and very light soiling to the text block edges. The dust jacket is unclipped and entirely complete with no losses or tears. We note light sunning to the jacket spine, minor wrinkling at the spine ends, and some creasing to the edge of the unclipped front flap. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302f2. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 002770

Buchbeschreibung William Heinemann Ltd., London, 1994. Hardcover. First edition, only printing. This is the first edition of the second volume of Churchill’s War Papers. The War Papers volumes are the companion document volumes accompanying Volume VI of Churchill’s Official Biography. This volume contains documents from May 1940, the month that Churchill became Prime Minister and Germany invaded France and the low countries, through December 1940, with Britain having fought off the immediate threat of Nazi invasion in the Battle of Britain, but nonetheless weak, isolated, and starved for supplies by the U-boat menace. This second War Papers volume was the penultimate volume of the Official Biography completed by Sir Martin Gilbert (1936-2015) before his death. This British first edition is considerably more scarce than the U.S. first edition, which is similar in appearance. This copy is very good in a near fine dust jacket. The red cloth binding is square and tight with minimal shelf wear confined to extremities, but a bit concave at the upper spine from the weight of the massive text block. The contents are bright and clean. We find no spotting or previous ownership marks, and only slight dust soiling to the top edge of the text block. The dust jacket is unclipped and entirely complete with no losses or tears with light sunning to the spine. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but substantially completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life. Gilbert saw completion of all eight main text volumes and seventeen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302f2. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 004387

Buchbeschreibung William Heinemann Ltd., London, 1993. Hardcover. First edition, only printing. This is a set of British first editions of the three War Papers volumes, the final volumes of Winston Churchill’s Official Biography completed before the death of Churchill’s official biographer, Sir Martin Gilbert. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but substantially completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - nineteen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were originally published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today, although the three War Papers document volumes were the last completed by Gilbert before his death. The three volumes of The War Papers were published by Heinemann between 1993 and 2000. The first volume contains documents from the outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939 to May 1940, the month that Churchill became Prime Minister and Germany invaded France and the Low Countries. The second volume contains documents from May 1940, the month that Churchill became Prime Minister and Germany invaded France and the Low Countries, through December 1940, with Britain having fought off the immediate threat of Nazi invasion in the Battle of Britain, but nonetheless weak, isolated, and starved for supplies by the U-boat menace. The third volume contains documents from 1941, which ended with the attack on Pearl Harbor, formal entry of the United States into the war, and Churchill addressing both a joint session of the U.S. Congress, as well as the Canadian Parliament. There were both British and U.S. editions. These British first editions are considerably more scarce (particularly Volumes 1 & 2) and highly sought than the U.S. first editions, which are similar in appearance. This set of all three features unread, near fine or better volumes in near fine or better dust jackets. The red cloth bindings of all three volumes are square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. We note only trivial shelf wear to extremities. The contents of all three volumes are crisp, clean, and bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. Even the page edges remain immaculately bright and clean. The dust jackets are crisp, clean, and complete, unclipped with no loss or appreciable wear. The sole defect noted is modest sunning to the Volume 2 spine. All three dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302f1, A303f2, A302f3. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 003563
