        Thoughts and Adventures

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd., 1932. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Very good plus. Here is the first edition, first printing of Churchill's collection of 23 engaging essays on an incredibly wide variety of subjects, published in 1932.  It has been called "The broadest range of Churchill's thought between two hard covers" and reflects the two qualities that so characterize Churchill's life - a remarkable breadth of both mind and life experience.  From the original front flap blurb:  "Whether he is dealing with personal reminiscences, or telling us his views on any subject under the sun, Mr. Churchill stamps the page with his own vivid personality."  In a 31 May 1932 letter to his publisher about the book, Churchill characterized it thus: "...although there is no one single theme, it has some of the best things in it I have ever written."  The khaki cloth unique to the first printing of this edition is notoriously prone to scuffing, wear, and soiling.  Moreover, the contents proved highly susceptible to spotting.  This copy is better than most, in very good plus condition.  The khaki cloth binding remains square and tight with sharp corners, bright gilt, and a nicely rounded spine that shows no toning or fading. Scuffing is modest for the edition, mostly confined to hinges and extremities with slight fraying to a small abraded spot below the publisher's name.  The contents remain crisp and bright with no previous ownership marks.  The book feels unread.  Light spotting is confined to the page edges, which also show some age-toning and minor soiling.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A95.1.a, Woods/ICS A39(aa.1), Langworth p.156.&

Most of these photographs are in Zakopane, a popular resort and tourist town in South Poland, also known as the winter capitol of Poland and center of Goral culture. Zakopane is a favourite place for skiing, hiking and mountaineering, many of these images show just that, some great shots of climbing the mountains, skiing and camping. The album itself is overall in very good condition, images are clean, pages are tight. Album in brown leather with really lovely designs to covers and ties at spine. Front cover with engraved brass studs as well, album very characteristic of that Goral, "Highlander" style. Included also at the very front is a folded original pencil drawing. It's quite a good fun little drawing, also in that Goral style.
