Two contemporary publications by the International Churchill Society preserved between covers for the first time a pair of fascinating Churchill obscurities.
The Dream was issued leatherbound in book form by the International Churchill Society in 1987. It is an ethereal short story — one of Winston Churchill’s few works of fiction — first published in The Daily Telegraph in 1966. In The Dream the ghost of his father, Randolph, visits Churchill in 1947. The son reviews for his father all that has happened to the world since Randolph Churchill died in 1895 without ever revealing the great role that he himself played in these events.
The Chartwell Bulletins were issued as a handsome paberback by the International Churchill Society in 1989, collected and edited by Churchill’s official biographer, Sir Martin Gilbert. They are a lovely curiousity: twelve unexpectedly tender letters written by Winston Churchill to his wife Clementine during her absence from Chartwell on a South Seas voyage between January and April 1935.
Originally published in The Daily Telegraph in 1966, this is the first appearance in book form of Churchill’s ethereal short story in which the ghost of his father, Randolph, visits him in 1947. The son reviews for his father all that has happened to the world since Randolph died in 1895 — never revealing the role that he himself played in these events.
A very good copy, as issued by the International Churchill Society in red leather, Number 221 in a limited edition of 500 copies.
