Collector's Guide

My Early Life is the only volume of personal memoirs that Churchill ever wrote. It is, arguably, his most entertaining book and an excellent entry point into his writing; a vivacious memoir of youth and wayward school boyhood. Published in the U.S. under the title A Roving Commission, the book has been endlessly re-issued in a variety of editions. True first editions, however, remain quite rare.

Description

This is a very good copy of the wartime Fourth Printing of the Third American edition. The price-clipped dust jacket is in very good condition, just lightly scuffed. The contents are fine.
