Winston S. Churchill, His Complete Speeches 1897-1963, full set of 8 volumes
Chelsea House Publishers in association with R. R. Bowker Company, New York 1974 - 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 Winston 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 in near-fine condition and is *NOT* ex-library. The red cloth bindings remain clean and bright with sharp corners and no sunning to the spines. External flaws are trivial, limited to some slight wrinkling at a few spine ends and tiny bumps to the Volume VI corners. The contents are uniformly bright, clean, and crisp internally, and feel unread. We find no previous ownership markings and no spotting. The page edges remain likewise clean and bright. The great weight of the text blocks often results in broken bindings. Here we note tight bindings with the minor exception of Volume V, which shows a split to the gutter paper between the first and second free endpapers, but the mull beneath remains firmly attached and the text block does not sag in the binding. Please note that this large, heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A284.1, Woods/ICS A145(a), Langworth p.349. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
