        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Volume I, Youth, 1874-1900, a family association copy inscribed for Winston Churchill's godson by the author, Winston Churchill's son

      William Heinemann Ltd., London 1966 - Here is the first edition, first printing of Volume I of the Official Biography of Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill, with a presentation inscription by the author, Winston’s son, Randolph S. Churchill, to Roger Frewen, Winston’s godson. The inked inscription on the half title reads thus in four lines: "Inscribed for | Roger Frewen | by | Randolph S. Churchill". The inscription is undated, but was necessarily done between 1966, when the book was published, and June 1968, when Randolph died. Roger Frewen’s bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown, below which is inked "Brede Place | 1966". Brede Place was the Frewen family home in Brede, East Sussex. This book comes to us from the Frewen collection, which includes copies of Churchill’s books spanning more than half a century, from 1906 to 1958, and three generations of Churchill’s relatives on his mother’s side, including his Aunt Clara and her descendants. Roger d'Hauteville Moreton Frewen (1914-1972) was the son of Churchill's first cousin, Hugh Frewen, and grandson of Churchill's Aunt Clara, his mother's elder sister. Hugh's childhood was marked by visits with his Churchill and Leslie cousins, including Winston, who was nine years older than Hugh. Roger was born in London during the First World War while his father was serving on the front and Winston was First Lord of the Admiralty. Roger was educated in Switzerland and Cambridge. In 1933, Roger suffered a near-fatal car accident. This and tuberculosis contracted during recovery permanently impaired his health. Nonetheless, Roger joined the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in 1938. Posted to the British Embassy in Berne during WWII, Roger listened to German and Italian military signals and reported information to Britain, drove lorries with military supplies through occupied France, and rescued escaped prisoners of war by crossing into Germany and Italy and bringing them to safety in Switzerland. Driven by income needs as his family grew, in the decades after the war Roger had careers in finance and real estate. Roger's son, Jonathan, from whom this book comes to us, recalls that Roger excelled at mathematics and languages and was "a kind man, an amusing raconteur. and a good Father." Jonathan also recalls that "Winston was an excellent godparent" who "never forgot a birthday or Christmas, no matter his duties." The Frewen collection includes books by Churchill inscribed to his godson spanning 1930 to the mid 1950s. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill was begun by Randolph Churchill, who authored the first two main text volumes and accompanying document volumes before his death, after which the work was taken up Martin Gilbert. The British first editions of the eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. This first volume spans the years 1874 to 1900, from Churchill's birth, to his early career as a soldier and war correspondent, to his return to England from an American lecture tour in order to embark on his storied political career. Condition of this inscribed family association copy is good plus in a good dust jacket. The red cloth binding is square and tight with sharp corners and bright spine gilt, but suffers some mottling of the red cover along the front cover fore edge and rear cover bottom edge, as well as a triangle of sunning at the spine head corresponding to a dust jacket loss. The contents remain bright with a crisp feel and retain unfaded red topstain. While we find no internal spotting, we do note both spotting to the fore and bottom page edges and some stray ink marks to the bottom edge. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original front flap price but worn, with a 1.25 inch deep triangular loss at the spine head, lesser losses to the corners and bottom edge of the front face, and general wear to extremities. The dust jacket is newly protected with a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A301a [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Volume I, Youth, 1874-1900, a family association copy inscribed for Winston Churchill's godson by the author, Winston Churchill's son

        Betsy and Joe

      1966. first edition. With an Original Pen and Ink Drawing of Pooh and Piglet in Characteristic PoseSHEPARD, Ernest H. Betsy and Joe. Written and illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1966. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed on the title-page, "To Betty Hardiman, Nov - 1966. Ernest H. Shepard" with an original black ink drawing of Winnie-the-Pooh holding Piglet's hand beneath the signature. Octavo. Original cloth. Original pictorial dust jacket (price-clipped). In the mid-sixties the copyright on all the Pooh characters was sold to the Disney Corporation and thus the merchandise which can now be purchased in various forms all over the world bears the Disney copyright as an imprint. "The first of Shepard's 'own' stories, Ben and Brock, was published in 1965. This was the story of a young boy, Ben, and his friend, Brock the badger…In 1966 the second of his own stories Betsy and Joe was published. Betsy is a squirrel and Joe is a tramp. This tells how they shared meals and adventures together. The tramp, as recorded in Shepard's book, was a dying breed when the book was written and therefore the pull on the child readers in the mid sixties was less meaningful. The drawings of the countryside and the portrayal of the villages and fields are a historic record of the time." (Arthur Chandler. The Man Who Drew Pooh, p. 154).Betsy and Joe was Shepard's last book [he was eighty-six years old and would live to be ninety-six].It is somewhat unusual, and fortuitous, that Shepard chose to embellish this little book with a charming image of his most famous characters caught in a characteristic pose, rather than a sketch from the book. Unfortunately we have been unable to identify Betty Hardiman, the recipient.

        The Legend of Hobey Baker [Signed]

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1966. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good +. A Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed, light wear to bottom corners), in a Very Good + dust jacket, CONTEMPORARILY INSCRIBED, SIGNED, AND DATED BY JOHN DAVIES on the front free endpaper as follows: "Christmas, 1966 // For Andy Ramseur / a future Hobey Baker / at least according to his grandfather // Best Wishes // John Davies". Hobey Baker, one of the greatest athletes of the early 20th Century and considered by many to be America's first star hockey player, played both hockey and football at Princeton University which named it hockey facility, the Hobey Baker Memorial Rink, after him. An inductee in the Hockey Hall of Fame (located in Toronto, Canada), Baker was the only American in the Hall's 1945 inaugural class of nine players, the others having been Canadian (one of which, Chuck Gardner, was born in the UK). America's National Collegiate Athletic Association annually awards the Hobey Baker Award to the individual voted that year's best collegiate hockey player. [The United States Hockey Hall of Fame was not founded until 1973 and Baker was one of it's initial inductees. Baker also was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1975.] One of Baker's many admirers, F. Scott Fitzgerald -- who enrolled at Princeton during Baker's senior year, described Baker as "an ideal worthy of everything in my enthusiastic admiration, yet consummated and expressed in a human being who stood within ten feet of me" and modeled his character Allenby -- of his debut novel "This Side of Paradise" -- on Hobey Baker. After graduation, Baker worked for J. P. Morgan Bank until he enlisted in the US Army Air Service, was eventually promoted to commander of the 141st Aero Squadron and was awarded the Croix de Guerre by the French government. He died in 1918 after a recently repaired plane he was testing at his own insistence crashed. When he was pulled from the wreckage, his orders to return home to the US were found in his jacket pocket. In 1962, George Frazier wrote of Baker "he haunts a whole school, and from generation unto generation. You say 'Hobey Baker' and all of a sudden you see the gallantry of a world long since gone." Copies of the book in collectable condition are not common and copies signed by John Davis are, in our experience, as scarce as hen's teeth. A Very Good + copy, SIGNED BY JOHN DAVIES. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
