Description: During the General Strike of 1926 Churchill, while Chancellor of the Exchequer, edited The British Gazette, created by the government to replace the striking daily newspapers. The British Gazette was published for a total of eight issues, from 5 May-13 May 1926. Besides editing the broadsheet, Churchill also contributed original, unsigned articles to issue Nos. 1, 2 & 3 (May 5-7) and the final issue No. 8 (May 13), in which he charted "The Birth and Life of The British Gazette."

We have a very rare complete set of THE BRITISH GAZETTE, together with an extraordinarily rare copy of THE SUNDAY GAZETTE, as noted and described by bibliographer Frederick Woods: "The Chartwell Trust archives also contains a proof of The Sunday Gazette dated 9 May 1926," wrote Woods "...Typographically similar to The British Gazette, it is separately numbered (No.1) and is printed on one side of the sheet. The proof contains no identifiable Churchill material, and there is no indication that it was ever issued." Nevertheless, we have one.
