Churchill's marvelous essay celebrating his favorite hobby first appeared in the Strand magazine over two issues in December 1921 and January 1922. It was then anthologized in Churchill’s THOUGHTS AND ADVENTURES, before being published on its own as this delightful little book, which has since been endlessly re-issued in a variety of English and American editions.

Description: This is a very good copy of the First American edition in the rare blackish-blue cloth binding variant. The price-clipped dust jacket has a closed tear, else fine. The contents are fine as well.
