Marlborough is Winston Churchill’s majestic biography of John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough; soldier, statesmen, hard-headed Churchillian ancestor. Initially published in England as a lush four-volume set and then as a somewhat less deluxe six-volume set in America, it was subsequently issued in an unabridged two-volume edition and a single-volume abridgment.
This is a Publisher’s Advance Proof for Volume II of the First English edition. It is a softcover wrapped in a correct Volume II dust jacket, which has rectangular loss across the upper right front face, else fine. The volume itself is in virtually mint condition. It matches the final published edition, including all the elaborately produced folded maps and plans.
