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 example of the Canadian Book-of-the-Month Club edition in unclipped dust jackets, as issued in a red linen slipcase with photo frontis. The books and dust jackets are in uniformly very good condition, as is the slipcase.
Rare thus.
