Description: The autobiography of this volatile Labour political figure, with Forewords by Winston Churchill and George Lansbury. A very difficult-to-find title, this is a good copy only of the First English edition, without dust jacket. The book has been rebacked somewhat crudely and the spine is faded and shelfworn, as are the boards, which have significantly rubbed corners. The gilt titles are still legible. The contents are fine, with minor foxing to the fore-edges and prelims, and a loss of roughly 1 x 2 1/2 inches from the front free endpaper where an inscription was apparently torn out.
