(London: Macmillan and Co Limited, 1906), IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION. Winston's very successful biography of his MP father. William Manchester, Winston's biographer, considered it, despite the son's apparently ambivalent feelings toward his father, "a tribute to filial devotion." 2 volumes. First edition. With 18 illustrations including two fine photogravure frontispieces. Large, thick 8vo, publisher's original burgundy cloth lettered and decorated in gilt on the spines and upper covers. xvii, 564; 523, index pp. A very pleasing set. Quite handsome copies of both volumes, bright and clean and very well preserved throughout, just a tiny bit of spotting to the fore-edges and trivial mellowing or age evidence to the extremities.
