1923-1931 The World Crisis
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding
All volumes are first editions. Volumes I, II, III and VI are all first impressions. Volumes IV and V are second impressions. It is uncommon to have a run of such early impressions.
Collated, a prior owner has removed three plates to volume II, maps I, VI, and VII. All other volumes are complete.
This is a fantastic work, which Churchill delivered at great speed following his electoral defeat. It was first published from 1923-1931 and is a staunch defence of his Gallipoli policy and a criticism of Haig's strategy.
Errata slip to the first volume, at page I.
Prior owner's inscription to the front pastedown of volumes I and II , J D Harrford.
A very scarce first edition set of this important work regarding the First World War.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, very smart. Bumping to the end and tail of spines. Small loss to the head of volume I. Loss to the cloth at the front board of volume V. Front hinge to volume VI is tender. Evidence of bookplate removal to the front pastedown of volume I, II. . Small loss to the bottom of front endpaper to volume VI. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound. Pages are bright with occasional light spots.
