One of Churchill’s earliest biographers updates his original 1927 work, carrying the story through Churchill’s opposition to the India Act and his alarms against the gathering Nazi threat. This is a very good copy of this Third Revised English Edition, in the extravagantly rare dust jacket, which is extraordinarily fresh, with just a hint of loss at the spine head and tail. The taupe-yellow cloth is brilliantly fresh and bright. The upper right corner is a bit crunched. The fore-edges are lightly foxed, the front free endpaper is missing and there is a tiny former-owner name in ink on the front pastedown. The contents are otherwise fine. Really a fascinating volume.
