"Concerned entirely with the Haidas of the Queen Charlotte Islands of the last century, the intricacies of the kinship patterns of the great families, and how they saw themselves as part of a fantastic, but in its own terms, logical, cosmos, and most of all how this was all expressed in their remarkable architecture with its perfectly integrated massive carved and painted embellishments, the great totem poles of the Haidas." - from Foreward. "The documentary photographs that survive are among the few remaining records which illustrate the richness and variety of Haida monumental art. Of the more than five hundred carved poles which appear in the plates, only about fifty were removed to museums for safekeeping. The remainder have perished entirely or survive at the village sites as decayed fragments overgrown with the lush vegetation of the islands." - from Preface.

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 3, The Coming of War 1936 - 1939

      Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston 1983 - The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - seventeen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. This is it - the rarest, most keenly sought, and most difficult to acquire of the Official Biography Companion Volumes - Companion Volume V, Part 3. There was just a single printing in England, which included sheets for this U.S. Houghton Mifflin edition. Consequently, the British and U.S. editions look almost exactly alike. The sole difference in terms of shelf appearance from the British edition is the publisher's name at the base of the spine. Here is the first U.S. edition, near-fine in a fine dust jacket. The red cloth binding is excellent - clean and bright with virtually no wear, square corners, and bright spine gilt. The contents are crisp, clean, bright, and tight with no spotting and no inscriptions. The red-stained top edge of the text block shows no fading whatsoever. The only flaw is some neat pencil notation along the right edge of the ffep and a small triangle at the top right corner of the ffep has been clipped. The crisp dust jacket is unclipped and exceptionally clean. There are no tears, no losses, and virtually no wear. And the notoriously fade-prone title print on the spine is bright and unfaded. This is a premium copy. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e3. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
