The People's Rights

Selected from His Lancashire and Other Recent Speeches

CHURCHILL, Winston

ONE OF CHURCHILL'S RAREST WORKS

CHURCHILL, Winston The People's Rights Selected from His Lancashire and Other Recent Speeches

Hodder & Stoughton, 1909.

First edition, cloth bound issue. Earliest state of the text, with one appendix and an index. 8vo. Original maroon cloth titled in gilt to spine and upper cover. A very good copy indeed with a bump to the upper corner and a little wear to the spine ends, but a generally bright clean copy. Armourial bookplate to front pastedown, page edges browned as usual. A small marginal chip to the final leaf of the index, but otherwise crisp and clean. Housed in custom made cloth box, an excellent copy of a noted rarity.

One of the rarest of all Churchill's works, the cloth bound issue is likely to have been issued in only 100 copies.
"The publisher records show that 100 sets of sheets were bound on 20 December 1909, four days after the payment to Churchill of a royalty of £100 on account and two weeks before the publication of the paper wrappers issue... It is, as least, very clear that only a few such copies were offered for sale and that they are extremely scarce." - Cohen
A collection of speeches delivered in Lancashire in December 1909 in the run up to the 1910 general election.
