The Second World War by Winston Churchill
These special edition books are Winston S Churchill’s personal narrative of The Second World War. This is the first illustrated “Chartwell” edition of The Second World War, published soon after the British first edition and aesthetically superior in every respect. It is also the final text, “in which all those first minor errors are corrected”, according to the author. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed such a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. This six-volume epic has been called “indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today.” And this particular edition stands the test of time as among the most pleasant to actually read. The standard binding for this issue was a bright red embossed calico-grain cloth stamped in gilt with brown leather spine labels and another rectangular brown leather label on the front cover bearing a blind stamped profile of Churchill. The text is entirely reset from the first edition and features hundreds of illustrations. Each volume also contains a colour frontispiece and three-colour maps.
A beautifully-bound six volume set of Winston Churchill’s epic series on the Second World War. This is the “Chartwell” Edition of the series which won him the Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in 1953.
