Arms and the Covenant
Harrap, London, 1938, 1st edition - An attractive binding by Harrap in dark blue cloth, gilt titles on spine, slightly larger than other Churchill titles of this era at 6 x 9 inches, top edges stained blue. Only one printing of 5000 copies, no reprints other than US edition. 466 pages, frontis portrait. An important collection of Churchill?s speeches during the period 1928-1938 which warn all too clearly of the coming war. The final paragraph of the last speech sums it up ?Now the victors are the vanquished.? Unfortunately there are no modern reprints, so firsts are in constant demand. Book IS tight and unworn, rich blue spine with bright gilt, some condensation stains on cover near outer edges. Page tops still blue but sunned. Foredges free of spots, but off white. Dustwrapper is first issue in light blue, unclipped, darkened on spine, wear at spine ends with uneven losses. (A44a). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
