Churchill, Winston S
Winston S. Churchill Autograph Letter Signed.
One page typed letter signed by Winston S. Churchill, dated April 6. 1956, on his "28 Hyde Park Gate, London" letterhead stationery. The letter is to author and publisher Desmond Flower and reads, "Thank you so much for your letter sending me the agenda you have prepared for the luncheon on April 23. It seems to me an excellent arrangement, and I am looking forward to the occasion very much. The weather has not been good, but I have had a very pleasant stay here. I return to England on April 10." The letterhead has been amended to read: "at La Pausa, Roquebrune, A.M. Winston S. Churchill." The recipient, Desmond Flower, published Churchill's The History of the English Speaking Peoples. Double matted and framed with a portrait of Churchill. The entire piece measures 23 inches by 16.25 inches. In near fine condition. Following the resignation of Neville Chamberlain on May 10th 1940, Winston S. Churchill became Prime Minister of England and took the lead in warning about Nazi Germany and in campaigning for rearmament. His speeches and radio broadcasts helped inspire British resistance, especially during the difficult days of 1940-41 when the British Commonwealth and Empire stood almost alone in its active opposition to Adolf Hitler. A non-academic historian, artist, and prolific writer, Churchill won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 for his overall, lifetime body of work. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
