Description: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."

Churchill's iconic speech celebrating victory in the "Battle of Britain" has become quite scarce in this handsomely produced His Majesty's Stationery Office pamphlet printing. Here is a far better than average copy, with covers that are complete but unevenly faded and lightly foxed, front and rear. The contents are not foxed. There is a hint of separation at the staples, else fine.

The pamphlet is here preserved in an elaborate khaki cloth solander with gilt spine titles, extra illustrated with various inserted photos and clippings.

Really quite marvelous.
