Description

“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, virtually contemporaneous 1940 printing by His Majesty’s Stationery Office. Here is an extremely good copy, with covers that are complete and only faintly faded. The contents are altogether unfoxed, with just a touch of rust-staining to the staples and very light creases to the covers.

Rare thus.
