Churchill at Chartwell
This is a very good First English edition copy, without dust jacket, a discreet ink gift inscription on the front free endpaper verso, else fine. Two personal letters from Winston Churchill are reproduced, one written from India in 1898, the other written in the train after the Battle of Omduran, along with excerpts from THE WORLD CRISIS and the text of a 1941 telegram and a 1943 letter.
Bibliographic numbers (in parentheses) are from Frederick Woods' original Churchill bibliography (Woods), as emended by Richard Langworth in his Connoisseur's Guide; and from the new, greatly expanded Churchill bibliography by Ronald Cohen (Cohen).
