Price: 35.00 USD
New York: Robert M. McBride & Company, 1928. First U.S. edition. An early biography of Churchill, concluding during his service as Chancellor of the Exchequer. An interesting view of Churchill in mid-career. "Certainly no Party of which he is a member - be it a political Party or a dinner-party - ever lacks the spur of his stimulating personality. Age, if he ever grows old - which seems extremely doubtful - must mellow him... He no longer takes himself with such preternatural seriousness as in earlier years, but he is taken far more seriously by the world." This first U.S. edition is much less common that its British counterpart. Here is a very good+ copy. The red cloth boards are clean and bright with square corners and little wear, marred only by a stain at the bottome of the front cover. The contents are clean, bright, and tight with no spotting and no inscriptions. The red-stained top edge retains strong, unfaded color. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A11.a. 1st Edition. Very good.
