About This Item

London: Cassell, 1948. First. Very Good+/Very Good-. A complete set of first editions of all of Churchill's speeches after WWII These volumes are scarcer than his War Speeches, since they were published in smaller quantities These are all the "true first" British editions US editions were published for the first four, but there was no US edition of the last, The Unwritten Alliance
All DJ's are in protective mylar covers
The Set includes:
1 The Sinews of Peace - 1948, 256 pp Book is fine in orange cloth, with no marks or damage at all Unclipped DJ is near fine, with just slight edge wear at spine ends [Woods A124]
2 Europe Unite - 1950, 506 pp Book is near fine in green cloth, with just very slight bumping at spine ends and extremely slight fading at top spine end Unclipped DJ is very good, with slight chipping at spine ends, and slight darkening on rear [Woods A128]
3 In the Balance, 1951, 406 pp Book is near fine in blue cloth, with just slight bumping on spine ends Cipped DJ is very good, with minor chipping, primarily at spine ends and slight soiling on rear [Woods A130]
4 Stemming the Tide, 1953, 379 pp Book is near fine in purple cloth, with just minor fading at spine ends Unclipped DJ is the scarce first state Only 5,500 copies were printed by the publisher, but not all were issued in 1953 The books released in 1953 had this DJ, which keeps the same bordered pattern as the other volumes The remaining books were released in 1961 with a slightly different DJ, without the oak leaf colored border The books themselves are identical, with the DJ variant being the only distinguishing difference (Note: I am listing another complete set of the post-war speeches that includes the second state DJ) [Woods A137]
5 The Unwritten Alliance, 1961, 332 pp Book is fine in red cloth Clipped DJ is near fine, with just extremely faint soiling on rear This is particularly noteworthy, since the quality of the DJ's for this book was not as good as for the other volumes, and thus DJ's more frequently show scuffing and wear This was Churchill's last book published during his lifetime [Woods A142]

Note: will ship within the US for the standard shipping, but any additional shipping will be charged for buyers outside the US..
