Collector's Guide

Arms and the Covenant captures Churchill’s initial alarms against Hitler and the Nazis in forty-one prophetic pre-war speeches delivered from 1936-1938, edited by his son Randolph. Published in the U.S. under the title While England Slept, the book, according to FDR, sat on his White House nightstand in 1938.

Description

This is a very good copy of the First American edition in a shelfworn dust jacket that is unclipped but creased, with edge-wear and some closed short tears. The cloth and binding are fresh and bright. The contents are fine and unfoxed, if just a trifle mellowed to a shade of off-white.
