This slender compilation of speeches about Gandhi and "Our Duty in India" was simultaneously published in especially handsome hardcover and softcover editions, both much prized today by collectors.

Description: This is an extraordinarily fine copy of the exceedingly rare hardcover first edition, in the even scarcer dust jacket, which is fresh and bright, lightly edge-chipped, with fractional losses along the upper edges and a short closed tear on each face. The jacket spine has darkened ever so modestly. The book itself is pristine and appears unopened; the cloth a brilliant orange, the contents fine and unfoxed. As precious and rarely seen as any volume in the Churchill canon.
