Painting as a Pastime is Winston Churchill’s marvelous essay celebrating his favorite hobby. It first appeared in the Strand magazine over two issues in December 1921 and January 1922. It was then anthologized in Churchill’s 1932 book, Thoughts and Adventures, before being published on its own as this delightful little volume, which has since been endlessly re-issued in a variety of English and American editions.
This copy of Levenger Press’s handsome leatherbound, gift-boxed reissue was SIGNED in ink especially for Chartwell Booksellers by Winston Churchill’s youngest daughter, Lady Mary Soames, who contributed the foreword to this edition. Without dust jacket, as issued, in mint condition, in its original box.
