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 beautiful First English edition set. The bindings are square and tight, the gilt titles are bright, the cloth is a deep red. There is a smattering of pale blue stain along the spine of Volume I and the spine points are a touch rubbed on both volumes. The contents of both volumes are fine, if ever so faintly foxed. A very healthy set.
