Winston S. Churchill bust

MY EARLY LIFE [1930]

(Cohen A91) (Woods A37)
Arguably Winston Churchill's most entertaining book, a memoir of youth and wayward school boyhood - in fact, the only volume of personal memoirs that Churchill ever wrote. Published in the U.S. under the title A ROVING COMMISSION, the work has been endlessly re-issued in a variety of editions. True first editions, however, remain quite rare.
