The fourth volume of Churchill’s collected post-war speeches (February 7, 1951 – December 11, 1952), encompassing Churchill’s return as Prime Minister amidst battles with Labour over rationing and all manifestations of socialism, as well as debates on Red China and the Korean War.
This is a very good First English edition copy, in an unclipped dust jacket that is edgeowrn, with rectangular losses of an inch or more on the front and rear faces and fractional loss at the spine head and tail. The book is virtually mint and the contents would be fine, save for a large glue shadow from the removal of a bookplate on the front free endpaper..
