This revelation of the secrets of nature, long mercifully withheld from man, should arouse the most solemn reflections in the mind and conscience of every human being capable of comprehension.” A very good copy of this very rare and important pamphlet, prepared in the wake of the dropping of the atom bomb in Japan and before the change of governments; issued jointly by Churchill and the new Prime Minister Clement Atlee on August 6, 1945.
The paper covers here are a bit worn and darkened with age, there are light creases to the front and rear faces, some soiling and edge chips, a spot of foxing on the front face, and modest rust staining surrounding the binding’s two small interior staples. Overall, however, this is a very healthy example of a very precious piece of Churchilliana.
