Churchill (Winston S., Right Hon.)

Secret Session Speeches.

Compiled by Charles Eade.

Description: FIRST EDITION, 16 photographic plates, with 8pp. in facsimile of the author's original typed notes, pp. 96, 8vo, contemporary binding of full red crushed morocco by Bumpus (signed on the rear turn-in), backstrip with 5 raised bands, lettered in gilt, single-fillet gilt border to both boards, a touch of rubbing at extremities, a.e.g., endpapers with borders slightly browned from turn-ins, a couple of faint spots at foot of initial blank, very good

Publication Details: Cassell, 1946

Notes: A presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the initial blank: 'To Arthur, from Winston S. Churchill, Christmas 1948' - the precise recipient is hard to identify, but the form of the inscription is a familiar one. A different copy in a matching Bumpus binding, inscribed without dedication by Churchill in 1948, was sold at Bonham's in 2014 - so we might suppose that this was a presentation binding commissioned by the author.
