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 near fine in orange cloth, with just slight bumping on spine ends and slight darkening of endpapers Unclipped DJ is very good, with just slight chipping at spine ends and slight foxing on rear [Woods A124]
2 Europe Unite - 1950, 506 pp Book is very good in green cloth, with front hinge cracked and very slight bumping at spine ends and top corner Unclipped DJ is very good, with chipping at spine ends, and minor foxing on rear and flaps [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 at spine ends, and slight foxing on rear [Woods A130]
4 Stemming the Tide, 1953, 379 pp Book is near fine in maroon cloth, with minor bumping at bottom spine end and slight scuffing on front lower edge Clipped DJ is the second state Only 5,500 copies were printed by the publisher in total, but not all were issued in 1953 The books released in 1953 had a DJ, which kept the same bordered pattern as the other volumes The remaining books were released in 1961 with this 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 also listing another complete set of the post-war speeches that includes the first state DJ) [Woods A137]
5 The Unwritten Alliance, 1961, 332 pp Book is near fine in red cloth, with just slight bumping at spine ends and slight fading at top of spine Clipped DJ is very good, with some chipping at spine ends and some scuffing and foxing, particularly on rear It should be noted that the quality of the DJ's for this book was not as good as for the other volumes, and thus jackets for this edition 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..
