India is a slender compendium of Churchill’s speeches about Gandhi and “Our Duty in India.” It was simultaneously published in especially handsome hardcover and softcover editions, both much prized today by collectors.
This is an extraordinarily fine copy of the exceedingly rare hardcover first edition, in the even scarcer dust jacket, which is fresh and bright, lightly edge-chipped, with fractional losses along the upper edges and a short closed tear on each face. The jacket spine has darkened ever so modestly. The book itself is pristine and appears unopened; the cloth a brilliant orange, the contents fine and unfoxed. As precious and rarely seen as any volume in the Churchill canon.
