Winston Churchill: War Speeches, First Editions

About

The War Speeches: Into Battle, The Unrelenting Struggle, Onwards to Victory, The Dawn of Liberation, Victory, and Secret Session Speeches "We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France and on the seas and oceans; we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be; we shall fight on the beaches, landing grounds, in fields, in streets and on the hills. We shall never surrender…” Complete first edition seven-volume set of Churchill's War Speeches. "In the dark days and darker nights when England stood alone — and most men save Englishmen despaired of England's life — he mobilized the English language and sent it into battle.” So spoke President John F. Kennedy of Winston Churchill as the United States declared the former prime minister an honorary american citizen in 1963. London: Cassel and Company Ltd., 1941-1946. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jackets. Books with mild foxing to edges (much less than is usual); dust jackets with slight discoloration and minimal edgewear, otherwise bright and clean copies. Into Battle with tape on inside of dust jacket running along top edge; The Unrelenting Struggle is neatly price clipped at bottom right corner of dust jacket; The Dawn of Liberation with light spotting along right side of front panel; Secret Session Speeches with trivial spotting on top left corner of front panel and on left side of back panel as well. Note: The first editions of the War Speeches were printed on cheap wartime paper, bound in coarse cloth, and with fragile dust jackets, making very good collectible copies such as these extremely difficult to find.
