Robert Boothby, A Portrait of Churchill's Ally
Robert Rhodes James
Price: 12.00 USD
New York: Viking Penguin Books, 1991. This is the first U.S. edition, fine condition in a fine dust jacket with the only flaw being a discrete black line remainder mark on the bottom edge. Boothby served as Churchill's parliamentary private secretary, was a Churchill supporter in the 1930s, and played a role in elevating Churchill to his wartime premiership. This biography is authored by former Oxford fellow and Member of Parliament Robert Rhodes James (1933-1999), who, among many other accomplishments, edited the mammoth eight-volume publication of Churchill's Complete Speeches. This crisp, jacketed copy appears unread. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Zoller B893. 1st Edition. Fine.
