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...
