Arms and the Covenant. Speeches. Compiled by Randolph S. Churchill.
London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1938 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge dyed blue. With the dust jacket. Contemporary ownership inscription. Light spotting to edges, partial tanning to half title and final blank, spine very slightly rolled, corners just nicked; an excellent copy in the spine-tanned jacket, with a few spots, chips to ends and corners, and tape repair to head of spine panel verso. Frontispiece portrait. First edition, first impression, in the scarce first issue jacket, repriced in pencil to 7/6 to match those of the remainder issue which had new jackets printed and priced at 7/6. Important collection of Churchill's speeches, 1928-38, on the dangers of a re-armed Germany. A contemporary review in the journal of the Royal Institute for International Affairs remarked that "apart from their literary graces" Churchill's speeches were remarkable because of "the restraint of their language" in view of the "blunders and inaccuracies" of the Government and for his technical mastery, "There seems to be nothing from Naval Strategy to the jigs and tools in an aircraft factory. on which Mr. Churchill is not an expert." Cohen A107; Woods 44a [Attributes: First Edition]
