Amid These Storms
First U.S. edition, only printing. A collection of 23 engaging essays on a wide variety of subjects published in 1932. Published in England as "Thoughts and Adventures", this is one of the few Churchill first editions for which the U.S. edition bears a different title than the British. The original dust jacket is extremely scarce and quite striking, bearing a full length photo of Churchill in Flanders, 1916, wearing his French piolu's helmet. Both the orange color on the dust jacket and the red-orange binding proved exceptionally prone to sunning. Further, the coarse cloth binding was also very susceptible to soiling. Consequently truly bright copies are almost never seen. Offered here is a near fine copy in a very good dust jacket. The orange cloth binding is clean and bright, showing no soiling, bright gilt, sharp corners, no wear and only the faintest, barely detectable hint of sunning to the spine. The contents are clean and tight with no spotting and no previous ownership markings of any kind. The dust jacket is unusually clean and unclipped, still bearing the original $3.50 price. The only losses of note are chipping across the head of the spine to a maximum depth of .25 inch. The orange panels on the jacket spine are lightly sunned, but nonetheless retain decent orange color. There is light wear at a few spots along the edges and at the corners. There is a vertical crease on both the front and rear dust jacket faces where the dust jacket was obviously once folded. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A95.2, Woods/ICS A39(ba), Langworth p.158.
