Guide

A HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH-SPEAKING PEOPLES

Sweeping four-volume history of England, her colonies, and the language that Churchill so venerated and ennobled in his own writings. The original English edition was handsomely printed, the American edition was less so. Subsequent re-issues and abridgements abound.

Description: This absolutely mint First Book-of-the-Month-Club set, in dust jackets, is still boxed in the original shipping container. A 60-year-old prize preserved as if in amber.
