Winston S Churchill, His Complete Speeches 1897-1963, full set of 8 volumes
New York: Chelsea House Publishers in association with R. R. Bowker Company, 1974. First edition. Hardcover. During more than half a century of public life Sir Winston Churchill delivered speeches whose incisive wit, artful cadence, stinging criticism, soaring sentiment, and resolute defiance still echo today. This complete set of 8 massive volumes contains the vast majority of Churchill's speeches from 1897 to 1963. The set is nearly 9,000 pages in length, takes up 18 inches of shelf space, and weighs 34 pounds. Before this incredible undertaking, many of Churchill's speeches had never been published in volume form. A great many of these impressive sets ended up in libraries, and consequently bear ex-library wear and markings. This set is NOT ex-library; we find no previous ownership marks, either within or on the text block edges or bindings. Overall condition approaches very good minus. The bindings all retain strong color and show only light wear to extremities, with all bindings still attached to the massive text blocks, even if a few bindings have hinges that are tender or starting. The contents remain bright within. Spotting appears confined to the page edges, with a small stain affecting the Volume I frontispiece, title page, and Preface. Volume VIII is the most flawed, with a sizable bump at the lower front hinge and wrinkling to the lower fore edge of pages 8650-8917, not from moisture but rather as if the sharp corner of another volume was once dropped on the lower fore edge of this volume. Withal, a full set with no previous ownership marks with good shelf presentation at a price considerably less than a near-fine or better set would command. Please note that this large, heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A284.1, Woods/ICS A145(a), Langworth p.349.
