“Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”
Churchill’s iconic speech celebrating victory in the “Battle of Britain” has become quite scarce in this handsomely produced, first pamphlet printing by His Majesty’s Stationery Office.
This is a far better than average copy, with covers that are complete and only nominally faded, some slight edge-toning, front and rear, and a few spots of foxing on the rear face. The contents are fine and unfoxed.
Increasingly rare thus.
