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 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.
