Churchill at Chartwell
The first volume of Bryant's highly expurgated two-volume abridgment of Allenbrooke's notoriously indiscreet war diaries. This is a very good copy of the First American edition, in a price-clipped dust jacket that has faded a bit at the spine and exhibits some shelfwear. Alanbrooke's name has been written in ink near the spine head. The contents are fine, with a bookplate on the front free endpaper and an owner address sticker on the half-title.
Bibliographic numbers are from Henry Ashley Redburn's original Bibliography of Works Containing or Relating to the Rt. Hon. S. Winston S. Churchill (R in parentheses) and from Curt J. Zoller's greatly expanded recent Annotated Bibliography of Works About Sir Winston Spencer Churchill (Z in parentheses).
