Winston S. Churchill bust

FOR FREE TRADE [1906]

(Cohen A18) (Woods A9)
In tandem with MR. BRODRICK’S ARMY, FOR FREE TRADE has always been the holy grail of Churchill collecting. A small, 136-page, softcover collection of nine speeches delivered on the title subject by Winston Churchill as a 31-year-old MP for Manchester, FOR FREE TRADE was published (at 1 shilling [25c]) by Arthur L. Humphreys, General Manager of Hatchard’s, the venerable London bookshop that still very much exists at number 187 Piccadilly. Hatchard’s, in 1906, already had a long and illustrious history as a publisher of pamphlets - political and otherwise - including Winston Churchill’s earlier speech compendium, the aforementioned MR. BRODRICK’S ARMY, which Humphreys and Hatchard’s had brought out three years before. Identical in format and binding to MR. BRODRICK'S ARMY and just as precious, FOR FREE TRADE may in fact be rarer today than the infamous BRODRICK. Both books were produced in small numbers, bound in unprepossing red printed wraps that did not age gracefully. Again, the surviving handful of copies of FOR FREE TRADE (as few as 12-15 accounted for) today constitute the stuff of collectors' dreams.
