Collector's Guide

Step by Step is a chilling anthology of Churchill’s prescient newspaper pieces¬†about the rising Nazi threat, written for the Evening Standard and Daily Telegraph,¬†commencing in 1936 with Hitler’s reoccupation of the Rhineland, through the final months before the declaration of war in 1939.


This is a very good copy of the First English Edition, in an unclipped dust jacket that has modestly darkened with age, as per usual, else fine. The book is virtually mint, crisp and clean, with bright green cloth and gilt lettering. The contents are fine with very faint, scattered foxing to the fore-edges only and the standard light flap toning to the pastedowns. An exceedingly handsome copy.
