Collector's Guide

Thoughts and Adventures is a terrific anthology of Churchill essays and magazine articles from the 1920s and early 1930s on a wide variety of subjects, including, especially, his much-loved essay “Painting as a Pastime.” It was issued in the U.S. under the title Amid These Storms.


A good-very good copy of the First English edition, without dust jacket. The cloth is edge-worn, with fractional surface-scraped loss at the spine head and light scratches on the rear face. The front free endpaper is excised and there is very faint damp-staining to the front pastedown only. The contents are otherwise fine and unfoxed.
