CHURCHILL, Winston S. (1874-1965).

A History of the English-Speaking Peoples.

London: Cassell & Company Ltd., 1956, 1956, 1957, 1958.

FIRST EDITIONS, first printings. Four volumes, octavo (25 x 17 x 13cm), pp.xxii; 416; pp.xii; 344; [2]; pp.xii; 332; [4]; pp.xii; 322. Publisher's red cloth, gilt titles to spines. Pictorial dust-jackets, all with correct printed price of 30s. net.

All volumes internally pristine with no inscriptions and with no signs of the spotting that often vexes this publication. Some slight toning to edges, top edge stain a little faded towards the front of the volumes but still bright. Contemporary newspaper reviews affixed to endpapers and final two pages of volume II. Bindings are fine. Dust-jackets all moderately toned to spines, some light handling to extremities with a few small closed tears, a few scuffs and marks, mostly to the spine panel of volume I. An attractive clean set. Very good.
