Scarce in First Edition, First issue format.<br> Vilified by history, Churchill sets out to give a true depiction of his famous ancestor: &#147; It is my hope to recall this great shade from the past, and not only to invest him with his panoply, but make him living and intimate to modern eyes. I hope to show that he was not only the foremost of English soldiers, but in the first rank among the statesmen of our history; not only that he was a Titan, for that is not disputed, but that he was a virtuous and benevolent being, eminently seviceable to to his age and country, capable of drawing harmony and design from chaos, and one who only needed an earlier and still wider authority to have made a more ordered and a more tolerant civilization for his own time and to help the future.&#148; (from the preface)

        Marlborough, His Life and Times, full set of finely bound British first editions

      George G. Harrap & Co 1933-1938, London - Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War. "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." (Richard Langworth, A Connoisseur's Guide to the Works of Sir Winston Churchill). The first edition of Marlborough was originally issued in four volumes between 1933 and 1938. Here is an excellent full set of four first edition, first printings sumptuously bound by the renowned Bayntun-Riviere bindery of Bath, England. The binding is half pebble-grain crimson morocco over red cloth boards. Features include raised spine bands, ruled panels, decorated compartments, leather corners, gilt ruled transitions, gilt top edges, head and foot bands, and marbled endpapers. Spine presentation is spectacular. The binding is in excellent, nearly as-new condition, showing only a few tiny corner bumps and a tiny scratch or two on the leather. The contents are worthy of the binding, being crisp, clean, bright and tight - and clearly never read. All maps, plans, and illustrations are present and pristine. There is no spotting whatsoever and no inscriptions or previous ownership markings of any kind. The gilt top edges remain bright and the fore edges are unusually bright as well, with none of the usual toning. The sole flaw detected is some minor staining on the fore edges of Volumes III and IV, which does not affect the text margins. Please note that this large, heavy set may require additional shipping costs. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.1.a, Woods/ICS A40(aa), Langworth p.166. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, full set of jacketed six U.S. first editions in the publisher's slipcase

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1933 - Winston Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, took years of research. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War. Churchill expert Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." The British first edition was issued in four volumes. The U.S. publisher chose to split the first two volumes into two books each, resulting in a six volume set that is otherwise identical in content to the British. Upon publication of the sixth and final volume in 1938, the publisher sold the full, uniform jacketed set in a boxed in a dark green publisher's slipcase for $16.50. Today such slipcased sets are quite rare indeed. Here is one - a full set of jacketed U.S. first edition, first printings in the original publisher's slipcase. The slipcase has done its job, and all six books within are pristine. The green cloth bindings are immaculate, square, and tight. The contents of all six volumes are pristine - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. No spotting. No inscriptions. Even the text block edges are unusually clean. All six are first edition, first printings, with the Scribner's "A" on the copyright page. The dust jackets are bright and clean with only light wear to extremities, including some scuffing to the spines. The only loss of note is minor chipping at the head of the Volume I spine to a depth of 1/8 inch. All six jackets are neatly price-clipped. The green publisher's slipcase is significantly edge worn and split along two of the back seams. Nonetheless, it is complete and notable for its scarcity in any condition.

        Marlborough: His Life and Times [Complete in 4 volumes]

      George G. Harrap (1933 - 1938), London - Large octavo. Original burgundy (purplish) cloth with gold-stamped Churchill family crest on cover and gold lettering on spine in original printed price-clipped dust jackets. Brown dj's in vols. I - III, dj in vol. IV in green. Beveled edges. Top edge gilt. Frontispiece in each volume. Captivating biography by Winston Churchill of the 1st Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill (1650 - 1722). The Duke was an English soldier and statesman, whose career spanned the reigns of five monarchs through the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The author was a descendant of the Duke. Churchill had conceived the idea of writing the work in 1929, when the conservative defeat in the general election meant that he was no longer a government minister. He seriously took on the task of writing in 1932 after pressure from his publishers. In the preface in Vol. I, Churchill writes: "It is my hope to recall this great shade from the past, and not only invest him with his panalopy, but make him living and intimate to modern eyes. I hope to show that he was not only the foremost of English soldiers, but in the first rank among the statesmen of our history; not only that he was a Titan, for that is not disputed, but that he was a virtuous and benevolent being, eminently serviceable to his age and country, capable of drawing harmony and design from chaos, and one who only needed an earlier and still wider authority to have made a more ordered and a more tolerant civilization for his own time, and to help the future." Vol. I: 611, [1]pp. Stated: "Reprinted October 1933" (Third Impression" stated on dj flap) Vol. II: 650, [1]pp. First edition, 1934. Vol. III: 607, [1]pp. First edition, 1936.

      [n.p., n.d.] 1933 - One of four copies authorized by W. A. Graham, Colonel J. A. G. D. Chief, Military Affairs Section in 1933. Tall, thick quarto. Red buckram, gold stamping on spine, 676 pp. R. S. Ellison's personal copy with his name and the title stamped in gold on the spine. Laid-in is a seven-page article, RENO COURT OF INQUIRY by Bruce R. Liddic, that provides a great deal of insight and understanding of this book. Bruce Liddic says "There are only two sources upon which to base the transcriptions of the Inquiry's stenographer: 1) The official longhand written record now stored in the National Archives, and 2) The Chicago Times' account which was printed in that newspaper during the inquiry. All other copies, editions, versions or variations, no matter the accuracy or the end product, are merely a reprint/retype of number one or two or a combination of number one and two above." Prior to being given to the National Archives in 1941, the "Official Record" of the Reno Inquiry was kept by the Judge Advocate general from 1879 until 1941. During this period Colonel W. A. Graham [1919-1920] received permission to make a longhand copy of the Official Record of 1879. In 1921 Graham produced ten copies of the 125 page abstract. Then in 1933, due to the original document deterioration, Graham had four more copies typed. Graham retained one copy, one was given to the National Archives, and two were given to the Judge Advocate Library. From these impressions, three more copies were typed under Graham's direction, by Miss Helen Bury, his secretary, and Miss Frances J. Burke. One of these is in the Newberry Library, one is unaccounted for, and one copy given to R. S. Ellison in 1942. Ellison, a Western Americana historian, is best remembered as being involved with Brig. General William Carey Brown in obtaining the Camp notes from Mrs. Camp after his death. Written in Ellison's hand in pencil are the words, "Received 3-11-42," on one of the preliminary [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Water Wheel.

      [Ithaca:] Dragon Press, Duffield and Green, 1933 - Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Spine rather dull, traces of damp to lower board, contents somewhat browned but a very good copy in the chipped and frayed dust jacket. First edition, first printing. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper: "This one for them Abernathys for having helped me in so many ways, sincerely Julian Mar.7.33." The recipient was Milton Abernathy, the editor of Contempo, a short lived but notable little magazine published in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, from 1931 to 1934, to which Shapiro (as John Sanford) contributed. This was Shapiro's first novel and the only one to bear his real name. John A. Sanford (1904-2003) was born Julian Lawrence Shapiro, but adopted his pen-name to forestall anti-Semitism, taking the name from his protagonist in The Water Wheel. A friend of Nathanael West whom he followed to Hollywood in a less than stellar attempt to become a screen writer, in 1938 he married the far more successful writer Marguerite Roberts. The couple were victims of the McCarthy witch hunt in the 1950s, and their refusal to testify led to their blacklisting in the film business for two decades. Shapiro may be considered one of the least justly neglected greats of American literature. His work was innovative and uncompromising - typically written without hope of popular acclaim, his books remain notably fresh. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
