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, in the rare dust jacket which is unclipped and quite bright. The front face is unfaded, with a closed tear along the upper spine edge, a faint scuff or two and some light creases. The rear face has darkened a touch more. The spine is much less faded than usual, with nominal edge-chipping and fractional losses at the spine head and tail. The book itself is virtually pristine, inside and out, unfaded and unfoxed. Rare thus.
