Description


Complete book set: The Second World War, Volumes 1–6. London: Cassell and Co. Ltd., 1948–1954. Hardcovers with dust jackets, 6 x 8.5. Beautifully signed on the half-title page of the fifth volume in fountain pen, “Winston S. Churchill.” Each volume is housed in a custom gilt-stamped clamshell box. Autographic condition: fine. Book condition: signed volume, VG-/VG-; unsigned volumes, VG/VG-. As Britain’s prime minister for most of the Second World War, Winston Churchill had an unparalleled perspective on the conflict. After leaving office in 1945, he produced this remarkable account, which holds a very high place in the ranks of nonfiction books of the 20th century. The comprehensive series was a major success in both Great Britain and the United States, and was largely responsible for his being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953.
