Why I Am A Free Trader- Rare Pamphlet of 1905 Speech by Winston Churchill

Why I Am A Free Trader. Published by Review of Reviewers, 3 Whitefriars Street, London April 13th 1905. 24pp. This is a rather scarce pamphlet and one of the earlier Churchill speech pamphlets. The frontis contains a portrait of Churchill cut down and pasted onto the first page. Slight foxing to some pages otherwise an excellent example of an early work. The pamphlet has recently been bound in half morocco binding with cloth sides. I have only seen 3 or 4 of these for sale in over 30 years. The same speech appears in the book Coming Men On Coming Questions p6–22. Value $4,000. Woods A7/1 (B2), Cohen A15...

Second World War – 6 vols – Limited Edition 100 copies by Winston Churchill

The Second World War, Limited Edition of 100 copies for presentation. Vol I: The Gathering Storm Vol 2: Their Finest Hour Vol 3: The Grand Alliance Vol 4: The Hinge of Fate Vol 5: Closing the Ring Vol 6: Triumph and Tragedy First English editions bound by the publisher (Cassell, London) in full black pebble grain Morocco. There are many editions of The Second World War by Winston Churchill; the American edition (Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1948-53) is the true first edition. I will be featuring many of the different editions on this site in later issues. This is a near fine set with bright gilt tooling, and contents which appear unread. These special limited editions are seldom seen on the secondary market these days. In the meantime, I recommend new collectors seeking detailed bibliographical information on works by Churchill to get hold of a copy of Woods, Langworth or Cohen – preferably all three. Value for a set in this condition: $6,000. Woods A123(b),  Cohen A 240.4, Langworth...
