The Great Republic collects all of Churchill’s major essays about the U.S.A. (approximately 130 pages), plus everything that he wrote about America in his History of the English-Speaking Peoples (approximately 230 pages). Also included are three Churchill essays about English Common Law, Magna Carta and Parliament (“America’s English Heritage”) along with his famous “what-if” story, “If Lee Had Not Won the Battle of Gettysburg.” Edited and arranged by Sir Winston’s grandson, the resulting volume constitutes an entirely new Churchill work.
This mint copy of the First American Edition, in an unclipped dust jacket, has been signed by Churchill’s grandson, “Winston S. Churchill” on the second front free endpaper.
