Collector's Guide

A History of the English-Speaking Peoples was Winston Churchill’s last great work; a sweeping, four-volume history of England, her colonies, and the language that Churchill so venerated and ennobled in his own writings. Published nearly twenty years after Churchill composed his first draft in the late-1930s, the books were released after the war simultaneously in Britain, the U.S., and Canada over a period of three years. The original English edition was handsomely printed, the American and Canadian editions less so. Subsequent re-issues and abridgments abound.


This is a very good Later English edition set, in price-clipped dust jackets that are largely glossy later versions of the originals. Volume I was published in 1972; Volume II in 1974; Volume III in 1967. Volume IV was never reprinted, it is a First Edition.
The contents of all volumes are fine.
Very attractive.
