Collector's Guide

Thoughts and Adventures is a terrific anthology of Churchill essays and magazine articles from the 1920s and early 1930s on a wide variety of subjects, including, especially, his much-loved essay “Painting as a Pastime.” It was issued in the U.S. under the title Amid These Storms.


This is a very good copy of the First American edition, without dust jacket. The fade-prone cloth is quite fresh and unfaded, with only nominal fading to the spine. The contents are fine.
