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 American edition in an unclipped dust jacket that is shelfworn and modestly faded but intact, with light edge-chipping and some fractional corner losses. The book is beautifully preserved, the cloth bright, with very faint spine fading. The contents are fine, with a small vintage bookplate on the front pastedown and a few lightly creased interior pages.
