First editions, first printings. Published by Cassell between 1948 and 1954. The collection is in very good (or better) condition, and as each volume is in very similar condition, I shall describe them as a whole. The dust wrappers have not been price clipped, with the first four showing the original 25s net price, and the latter two 30s net. They have light edgewear and occasional chipping to the toned spine tips. The boards are free from chips and marks and are all tight at the spine and sharp at the corners. The text blocks are markedly bright and with only very slight foxing present. Each volume is free from previous owners inscriptions and internally clean. Overall, this is a very good set of a great collection.

“It was wholly appropriate that in 1953 Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature” (Keegan). Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 best non-fiction books of the twentieth century. It placed number one on the 100 best non-fiction books of the twentieth century by National Review magazine.
