This two-volume reprint edition, first published in 1947, was photo-lithographed from the original first edition text, compressed and printed on thinner paper, but left unabridged. It is a lovely set, here in unclipped dust jackets that are virtually mint, as are the books themselves.
Rare thus and a beautiful way to read Churchill’s magnum biographical opus.
