According to Churchill bibliographers, a First Edition was issued without the red card covers. Only three copies are known to exist today.

This Second Edition copy has been rebound with a custom-made facsimile of the original printed red card wrappers. There is foxing to the first six pages (including the title-page and the Dedication leaf) and the last five pages only.

A very good, clean copy, otherwise, of Churchill’s rarest work, here preserved in a platform chemise and half morocco slipcase.
