This is a very good copy of a 1949 reprint of the one-volume, abridged, so-called “Cheap Edition” of 1933. Printed from the original plates for the first 1902 abridged edition, this edition remains important bibliographically for the new Introduction that Churchill wrote for it. The unclipped dust jacket here has darkened somewhat with age, else fine. The contents are fine as well. A handsome copy.
