        The World Crisis, full set of six British first edition, first printings, inscribed in the month of publication in the final volume

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. This is a full set of six British first edition, first printings of Churchill's monumental history of the First World War, inscribed and dated in the sixth and final book in the month of publication to Harry McGowan, prominent British industrialist and Winston Churchill's friend and financial advisor. Inked in black on the half-title in four lines is "Harry McGowan / from / Winston S. Churchill / Nov 5. 1931". Most signed sets of The World Crisis are inscribed in the 1916-1918 volumes, which were published in 1927. (By 1927 Churchill had returned to power and was serving as the powerful Chancellor of the Exchequer). Sets inscribed in the final volume are more scarce; in 1931 Churchill found himself out of of power, out of favor, and widely regarded as a spent political force. He had lost his fortune in the 1929 market crash, and in 1931 quit Tory leadership over India and had begun to voice the unpopular warnings about Nazi Germany that would characterize his "wilderness years" of the 1930s. Harry Duncan McGowan (3 June 1874 – 13 July 1961) was born the same year as Churchill. McGowan was knighted in 1918 ("for putting through efficient mergers of munitions firms") and raised to the peerage as Baron McGowan in 1937. He was also elected to the Other Club (founded by Churchill and F.E. Smith) in 1930 - an invitation to do so being Churchill's "highest accolade". Churchill entrusted McGowan with investment of his money and profited from McGowan's guidance before the 1929 market crash. The month after this volume was inscribed, Churchill was struck and seriously injured by a car in New York City. McGowan was among eight friends who purchased a car for Churchill to celebrate his recovery. It appears that McGowan was also a genuine enthusiast for Churchill's writing. In October 1934 McGowan wrote "it is given to few to fill such a position in Public Affairs and to write so wonderfully and so prolifically." Churchill had many friends and associates who favored appeasement of Nazi ambitions and distanced themselves from Churchill during the 1930s. McGowan was not among them. During a typical speech on 26 September 1935 warning of the dangers of Nazi armament and British complacency, Churchill acknowledged the difficulty of his role, stating "No doubt it is not popular to say these things, but I am accustomed to abuse and I expect to have a great deal more of it before I have finished." McGowan wrote to Churchill that same day, saying "Why in God's name you are not in the Cabinet, and Minister of Defence, beats me and many others." McGowan served as Chairman of Imperial Chemical Industries for 20 years, including the Second World War and would lose his son-in-law to the war in November 1942. The inscribed Eastern Front volume is in near-fine condition. The binding is square, clean, and tight with bright spine gilt, nicely rounded spine, almost none of the usual scuffing to the boards, with the only flaws being some wrinkling at the spine head and hint of blistering of the cloth at the front hinge. The contents are immaculate - notably crisp, clean, and bright with absolutely no spotting. The only previous ownership mark is, of course, the author's inscription to the half-title, which bears some typical transfer browning from the pastedown. The remaining five volumes are likewise near-fine with superior shelf presentation. The bindings are bright, clean, and square with minimal wear primarily confined to extremities. The contents are notably free of the typical spotting, with only slight minor age-toning to the page edges and light dust soiling to a few top edges. Notably, the 1915 volume bears "H. McGowan" inked on the ffep. The only other previous owner mark we find in the set is the decorative bookplate affixed to the 1916-1918 Part I pastedown. This would be a collector-worthy set even without the inscription. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105.

        The World Crisis, full set of U.S. first editions inscribed and dated by Churchill

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1923. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. INSCRIBED AND DATED BY CHURCHILL. Any inscribed World Crisis set is a prize, but inscribed U.S. editions seem considerably more scarce than inscribed British editions. Collectors will note, the U.S. first edition of the World Crisis is the true first edition, as U.S. publication preceded the British. Offered here is a full set of U.S. first editions signed by Churchill in Volume IV, The Aftermath. A lovely inked inscription by the author in three lines on the ffep reads "Inscribed by Winston S. Churchill Feb. 1932". All volumes are first edition, first printings except for The Aftermath, which is first edition, third printing. In February of 1932, Churchill was traveling in the United States on a lucrative and successful lecture tour. He spoke in many cities throughout the month before departing for England on 11 March aboard the ocean liner Majestic. This volume was undoubtedly inscribed during the tour. Publisher Charles Scribner wrote to Churchill on the day of his departure "I sincerely hope that you made no mistake in trusting your books to us. we will continue to back them until they come into their own." Churchill's books most certainly did come into their own. The inscribed volume is in very good condition. The russet boards are bright and clean with square corners and only minor shelf wear at the bottom edge. The spine is just slightly faded with minor wear at head and tail, but is clean and retains good color and bright gilt. The contents are clean and bright with no inscriptions save the one by the author. The third printing was issued in September 1929, six months after the first. The five first edition, first printing books comprising the rest of this set are in very good to near-fine condition with minor flaws and wear. The contents are uniformly clean, tight, and unusually bright for paper that is prone to age-yellowing. There is no spotting. There are no previous ownership marks save for a bookplate on the pastedown of The Unknown War. The boards are all clean and bright with only minor scuffing or blemishes. Spine presentation shows only very mild fading. Even the notoriously fade-prone Volume I spine retains good color, although the gilt has darkened as is normal for this volume. Of special note, the folding map at p.388 of The Unknown War is properly folded with no tears; there is just some wear to the leading edge where it protrudes slightly from the text block. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1, Woods/ICS A31(aa). Langworth p.103.

        The World Crisis, full set of six British first edition, first printings, inscribed by Churchill to a close friend before publication in the third book

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. This is a full set of six British first edition, first printings of Churchill's monumental history of the First World War, inscribed and dated in the third book by Churchill (two days before publication) to his "oldest friend" Jack Seely. Inked on the ffep of 1916-1918 Part I in four lines is "Jack Seely / from / Winston S. Churchill / 1.3.27". John Edward Bernard Seely (1868-1947), 1st Baron Mottistone CB, CMG, DSO, PC, TD, was Churchill's close friend, comrade in arms, and political ally for nearly half a century. His life and career remarkably parallel and entwine Churchill's, with a particularly strong bond during the First World War, both in politics and on the Front. As boys, Seely and Churchill both attended Harrow. Both earned distinction in the Boer War and parlayed war records into election to Parliament in the "Khaki election" of 1900. Churchill and Seely quickly became political allies and confidantes. Both left the Conservative party, becoming Liberals in 1904. Both joined the Liberal Government Cabinet in 1908. In 1911 Churchill became First Lord of the Admiralty and in 1912 Seely became Secretary of State for War. Both were forced out of the Cabinet - Seely for the Curragh Incident in 1914 and Churchill for the Dardanelles in 1915 - and both subsequently chose to serve on the Front. While on active service in Europe, the two friends arranged to see one another often and continued to correspond throughout the war. In 1916, Churchill wrote to Seely "Good luck to you my dear - count on me if the moment comes when I am worth anything again." Churchill was the first to be politically rehabilitated, returning to the Cabinet as Minister of Munitions in 1917. Seely would write from Flanders "I am so glad, not only for your sake who at last have an outlet for energies and talents, but even more for all of us who want so badly just what you can give." While Seely continued to serve with gallant distinction, Churchill faithfully advocated for a Ministerial appointment for him. In 1918, after retiring from active military service, Seely campaigned for Churchill in Dundee. When Churchill became Secretary of State for Air and War in 1919, he brought in Seely as Under-Secretary for Air. Though Seely chafed at his failure to secure his own ministry and ultimately resigned in frustration, the friendship endured. Churchill wrote to Seely "I did whatever was in my power wh sincere & old friendship suggested to assist yr return from the military to the political arena. Had greater offices been in my sphere of influence, I wd have found one for you." In 1924, both Seely and Churchill rejoined the Conservative Party. In 1927, when this book was inscribed, Churchill was Chancellor of the Exchequer and Seely Chairman of the National Savings Commission (a post he held from 1926-1943). Two years later, Churchill wrote to Stanley Baldwin urging that Seely be given a peerage; Seely was created Baron Mottistone in 1933. The inscribed 1916-1918 Part I book is in near-fine condition. The binding is square, clean, and tight, with only very light shelf wear and minor wrinkling at the spine ends. The contents are bright and crisp. Spotting is mostly confined to the prelims and page edges, of course including the inscribed ffep. Nonetheless, the inscription is excellent, with no age-spreading or smudging of the ink. The remaining five volumes make this a very nice set indeed with superior spine presentation. The bindings are uniformly clean with bright gilt and only light shelf wear, mostly confined to extremities. The contents are uniformly clean and tight. Light spotting is confined to text block edges and the prelims of two volumes. The Eastern Front and The Aftermath both have a single neat previous owner name inked on the ffep. The 1911-1914 volume bears an inked inscription on the ffep dated 4 May 1923. We find no other ownership marks. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105
