A terrific anthology of Churchill essays and magazine articles from the 1920s and early 1930s on a wide variety of subjects, including "Painting as a Pastime." Issued in the U.S. under the title AMID THESE STORMS.

Description: This is a very good First English edition copy in the handsome and extraordinarily rare dust jacket, which is unclipped and darkened only nominally with age. There are miniscule losses to the dust jacket extremities at each corner and at the spine head and tail, where there is also separation of approximately one inch along the lower right fold. The book is virtually mint; the cloth is fresh, the gilt lettering is bright and the binding is crisp, with sharp corners. The contents are fine, with the faintest of scattered, very light foxing, and a very tiny owner name in ink on the front free endpaper. Overall, a brilliant copy of a very rare book.
