Beschreibung

This is a first edition, first printing in dust jacket of the fifth book in Churchill's acclaimed history of the First World War, titled "The World Crisis". This volume deals with the postwar years 1918 to 1928. Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. The U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. Volume I publication preceded the British. Both the U.S. and British editions were originally published as six individual books between 1923 and 1931. Today, jacketed first editions are quite scarce - jacketed U.S. editions even more so than their British counterparts. This copy is beautifully fine in a good plus dust jacket. The russet cloth binding remains square, tight, and immaculately bright and clean, as only jacketed copies can be. The contents remain perfectly clean with no spotting, no inscriptions. Even the untrimmed fore edges remain clean. We note a tiny Philadelphia book store sticker affixed to the lower front pastedown. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original "$5.00" front flap price. We note shallow chipping at the corners and edges. There are losses at the spine ends to a maximum depth of .25 inch at the spine head and .75 inch at the lower spine corners, but no loss of spine lettering, with both the title and publisher print unaffected. The dust jacket is now protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1(IV).a, Woods/ICS A31(aa), Langworth p.103. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 003197
