A four-volume set of Odhams Press reprints still boxed in their original mailing container, postmarked: 12 April 1949. Odhams Press was a British mail order bookseller that, beginning in 1947, regularly reprinted these four essential Churchill titles in two different bindings with Churchill’s signature in gilt on the covers: “Standard” (bright red cloth, with unstained page edges ), and “Deluxe” (red leatherette with black leather spine labels and red stained page edges).
The books in this set are all Standard edition second printings, in their original dust jackets, here preserved in plastic jacket protectors. Each volume has the same ink gift inscription on the front pastedown. All appear to be unread and are virtually mint.
Rare thus, to say the least.
