Collector's Guide

Arms and the Covenant¬†captures¬†Churchill’s initial alarms against Hitler and the Nazis in forty-one prophetic pre-war speeches delivered from 1928-1938, edited by his son Randolph. Published in the U.S. under the title While England Slept, the book, according to FDR, sat on his White House nightstand in 1938.


This is a very good copy of the First English edition, without dust jacket. The cloth has faded unevenly and somewhat blotchilly. The contents are fine, with frontis photo toning to the half-title, as per usual.
