MY EARLY LIFE. A Roving Commission
Thornton Butterworth Limited. London. 1930. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. 1st state, with 11 titles by Churchill listed on the half title. Illustrated throughout with maps and portraits. A small amount of very light spotting to a few leaves but overall this is a clean and bright copy. Finely bound in the Cosway style. Full red morocco, spine with raised bands, each ruled in gilt. Compartments lettered and double ruled in gilt. Front board with fine hand painted portrait of Churchill under glass panel. Portrait surrounded by decorative floral gilt design. Both boards with double gilt ruled borders. Board edges decorated with gilt piping and ruled lines. Decorative floral gilt decorations on inner boards. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Housed in a red cloth covered, leather entry slip case. Aside from some very minor and uniform fading on the spine this is a beautiful highly decorative binding. The binding is unsigned but certainly the work of a master bookbinder.
