Churchill's impassioned two-volume biography written in defense of his maligned father's posthumous reputation. Subsequently issued in an unabridged one-volume edition. A bulwark of any Churchill collection.

Description: This is a very good copy of the First English unabridged single-volume edition. The cloth is clean, the spine has faded modestly, as have the gilt titles. The corners have turned slightly and the lower front right corner is a bit crunched. There is a gentle front hinge break. The frontis photo tissue guard is present and the contents are fine and unfoxed, with perhaps a hint of dampstaining.
