         The Second World War

      London: Cassell & Co. Ltd.,, 1948–54. 6 volumes, octavo. Original black cloth, titles gilt to spines, top edges red, grey endpapers decorated with a design that alternates a lion rampant with the initials W.S.C. In the typographical dust jackets with background design as per the endpapers. Maps and diagrams, some folding. An excellent set in the unusually bright jackets. First editions, first impressions, of Churchill's masterpiece, the single most important historical account of the Second World War. Max Beloff observed that there was no statesman of the twentieth century "whose retrospective accounts of the great events in which he has taken part have so dominated subsequent historical thinking." A man who had always primarily made his living by his pen, Churchill was the only major war leader to give an authoritative account of the conflict, and his ringing phrases seeped into the collective memory. As J. H. Plumb noted in his essay in A. J. P. Taylor's Churchill: Four Faces and the Man "Churchill the historian lies at the very heart of all historiography of the Second World War, and will always remain there… [we still] move down the broad avenues which he drove through war's confusion and complexity."

         The Second World War, full set of six British first editions

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1948. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a full, jacketed, set of British first editions of The Second World War, Churchill's history of the epic 20th Century struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. This set is of particular note for excellent shelf appearance. Jacketed British first edition sets in marginal condition are not uncommon. However, the coarse cloth bindings of this edition proved susceptible to soiling and mildew, the contents (printed on post-war "Economy Standards" paper) proved highly prone to spotting, the red-stained top edges are most often severely faded, and the dust jackets proved exceptionally vulnerable to pronounced spine toning. This set is an exception, comprised of near fine first edition, first printing volumes in near fine dust jackets. The jackets are exceptional examples. All six are unclipped, retaining the original publisher's prices on the lower front flaps. All six jackets retain exceptional shelf presentation, with no evidence of the typical spine toning and bright red subtitles. The only loss we note is fractional chips to the Volume I & II spine extremities. The dust jackets are protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers. The volumes beneath are likewise exceptionally clean. The black cloth bindings are immaculate with vivid spine gilt, the contents quite unusually bright with no spotting. The red stained top edges all retain strong color. What prevents our grading the volumes as truly fine – and pricing the set accordingly – is a slightly shaken Volume I binding with a cosmetic split at the title page gutter, narrowly exposing the fully intact and firmly attached mull beneath. The sole previous ownership mark we find in the set is a single inked initial and last name to the upper Volume I front free endpaper. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. As with so much of what Churchill wrote, The Second World War is not "history" in the strictly academic, objectivist sense, but rather Churchill's perspective on history. In his March 1948 introduction to the first volume, Churchill himself made the disclaimer, "I do not describe it as history... it is a contribution to history..." Nonetheless the compelling fact remains, as stated by Churchill himself, "I am perhaps the only man who has passed through both the two supreme cataclysms of recorded history in high Cabinet office... I was for more than five years in this second struggle with Germany the Head of His Majesty's government. I write, therefore, from a different standpoint and with more authority than was possible in my earlier books." Certainly The Second World War may be regarded as an intensely personal and inherently biased history. Nonetheless, Churchill's work remains seminal, iconic, and a vital part of the historical record. Richard Langworth calls the six-volume epic "indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today." Please note that this set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A240.4(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A123(ba), Langworth p.264.

         Proceedings of a Symposium on Large-scale Digital Calculating Machinery.

      Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press,, 1948. Jointly Sponsored by The Navy Department Bureau of Ordnance and Harvard University at The Computation Laboratory 7-10 January 1947. Quarto. Original navy cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt. Photographic frontispiece, numerous photographs and figures to the text. Ownership signature of Raymond John Seeger to front free endpaper. Extremities slightly rubbed, spine faded, rear board a little marked, contents evenly browned, overall a bright and very good copy. First edition, first printing, of volume 16 of The Annals of the Computational Laboratory of Harvard University, owned by one of the conference contributors. It was the first of two symposia organised by the head of Harvard's Computation Laboratory, Howard Aiken, and was at the time the world's largest computing conference, with over 300 delegates in attendance (a smaller conference with around 85 delegates was held at MIT in 1945). Discussion focused on the practical application of new computing technology to a variety of fields such as economics, physics, aeronautics, and physiology. Several leading contemporary academics, including Alan Turing, were in attendance, and Aiken was at that time considered to be "the leading champion in the US of electromechanical program-controlled computation" (Sommaruga & Strahm, p. 71). This copy belonged to American theoretical physicist Seeger, who was the chief of the Mechanical Division at the Bureau of Ordnance from 1942 to 1946. He recommended acquisition by the Navy of one of the first computers to be used for experimental mathematics and fluid mechanics. His paper, "On Computational Techniques for Certain Problems in Fluid Dynamics", was delivered as part of the fifth session on 9 January 1947.

         The Second World War, full set of six U S first editions

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1948. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a full, six-volume, jacketed set of first editions of The Second World War, Churchill's history of the epic 20th Century struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. This U.S. first edition is not only scarcer today than its British counterpart, but is also the true first edition; the first U.S. volume, The Gathering Storm, was published in June 1948, while the British first edition was not published until October 1948. The sixth and final U.S. first edition volume, Triumph and Tragedy, was published during Churchill's second and final Premiership in November 1953. A Book-of-the-Month Club (BOMC) edition was published virtually simultaneously with the U.S. first edition and is quite similar in appearance (often causing confusion for disappointed collectors who think they are buying first editions). Note these are not the common BOMC look-alikes, but correct first trade editions in all respects: the dust jackets are unclipped and bear the correct, first printing $6.00 price. All top edges are stained dark yellow-orange. All volumes bear the distinctive red and yellow head and foot bands. Title and copyright pages bear correct first printing indications. There are no BOMC indentations on the rear covers. This set features very good or better volumes in jackets ranging from good plus to very good. Spine presentation of the dust jackets is good, with only minor loss to the Volume I & II spine heads. What prevents our grading (and pricing) this set higher is dulling of the vivid red, yellow, and orange hues on the spines of the Volume II-VI dust jackets. Notably, the Volume I jacket spine remains bright. All six dust jackets are protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers. All six red cloth bindings remain tight and clean with sharp corners and bright gilt. There is minor, uniform concavity at the spine heads across the set from the weight of the text blocks on the shelf over long years. The contents of all six volumes are notably clean. We find no spotting or previous ownership marks. Even the page edges remain clean and the yellow-orange topstain remains strong and consistent across the set. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. As with so much of what Churchill wrote, The Second World War is not "history" in the strictly academic, objectivist sense, but rather Churchill's perspective on history. In his March 1948 introduction to the first volume, Churchill himself made the disclaimer, "I do not describe it as history... it is a contribution to history..."

I write, therefore, from a different standpoint and with more authority than was possible in my earlier books." Certainly The Second World War may be regarded as an intensely personal and inherently biased history. Nonetheless, Churchill's work remains seminal, iconic, and a vital part of the historical record. The six-volume epic has been called "indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today.” Please note that this large set may require additional postage.
