Specialist Catalogue: Winston S. Churchill

"Winston Churchill once said" is the introduction to some of the most often quoted epigrams of the last century, almost all well known to us. But when he said that he was "much more at home with a pen than on the platform", it is perhaps harder to see him in his Chartwell study going over proofs than on a platform in front of a captive audience.

This perception belies Churchill's extraordinary literary output, almost all of which is captured in the pages of our new catalogue, the fruits of a single private collection of first editions, with an impressive range of reference material appended to it.

Included are noted rarities such as the clothbound issue of The People's Rights (1909), a French military presentation copy of La Crise Mondiale (The World Crisis), as well as excellent examples of the 1930s dustwrappers for Thoughts And Adventures and Great Contemporaries.

It is a collection that shows Churchill, in turn, as reporter, ambitious politician, statesman, historian, novelist, biographer and artist.

Whether you are looking to fill gaps in an already comprehensive collection, begin one, or find a gift for a Churchillian loved one, we hope that you will find the right book in these pages.
