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.

Description

This is a very good copy of what appears to be a rare “Times Book Club” edition, not described in the Cohen bibliography, but conforming generally to other London Times Book Club editions in design and typography. The gilt spine titles have dulled a bit but the green cloth is clean and unfaded and the contents are fine and unfoxed, with a former-owner’s bookplate on the front pastedown.
