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 copy of the First Keystone Library reprint edition in the rare dust jacket, which is wonderfully fresh but price-clipped as per the publisher's original design for export to Canada and Australia, with the lower front panel and lower spine each neatly clipped of their Pound Sterling prices, resulting in three small triangular gashes in this beautifully printed jacket. Shadows of an inked former-owner name are visible on the front free endpaper and on the front pastedown. The fore-edges are very lightly foxed. The cloth boards are fresh; the contents are fine.
