Description

Published under the sponsorship of the Nobel Foundation & the Swedish Academy, this volume contains the texts of Winston Churchill’s Nobel address, as well as Albert Camus’, together with excerpts from MY EARLY LIFE and THE ISLAND RACE, and an essay by Hugh Trevor-Roper on “The Life and Works of Winston Churchill.”

This is a very good copy, as issued, in what appears to be a slightly more deluxe edition of solid blue embossed leatherette, with marbled endpapers and a ribbon marker, all edges gilded. Virtually mint and rare thus.
