THE SECOND WORLD WAR. Volume One: The Gathering Storm. Stock code: 13270

Author / Artist:

Churchill, Winston S.


First UK edition, first printing. Publisher's original black cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. 640pp. Folding map. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm, the contents with a little spotting to the text block edge otherwise clean throughout. Complete with the original lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper which is a little toned to the spine. Not price-clipped (25s net to the front flap).




Inscribed by the author in blue ink on the half title "Inscribed by / Winston S. Churchill [underlined] / 1948". The inscription has bled a little, resulting in light ghosting to the title page. An excellent signed first edition of the first volume in Churchill's history of The Second World War which was published in six individual volumes between 1948 and 1954. [Woods A123(b)].
