CHURCHILL, Winston The World Crisis 1911 - 1914; 1915; 1916 - 1918 (parts one & two); The Aftermath; The Eastern Front,

Butterworth, 1923.

Six volumes, containing five parts, all first editions. 8vo. Original blue buckram with gilt titles on the spine. Blind stamped titles to the upper covers. Errata slips tipped into the first and fourth volumes. In total 47 maps and charts (39 fold out) and fourteen full page plates, as well as many diagrams in the text. A near fine set. Generally very clean and bright. Light spotting and occasional browning of page edges, some light interior foxing. Ownership inscriptions to the first and sixth volumes, bookplate to the front pastedown of the second.

Churchill's seminal account of the First World War, upon which a large part of his reputation as a writer rests.
"The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." - Woods.
Published separately and originally planned as only three volumes, the others were added later and as a consequence volume six (present here) is often lacking.

Woods A31(a), Cohen A69.2.a
