Marlborough His Life and Times
Beautiful limited edition set of just 155 copies, of which this is number 43 signed by Sir Winston Churchill. Excellent deluxe binding by Leighton Straker in full orange morocco with raised bands and gilt titles to the spine, and gilt Marlborough family coats of arms to the front covers. Spines a little faded, and a couple of light marks to the boards otherwise a lovely set. Marbled endpapers. A touch of foxing otherwise contents clean and bright, binding tight. Original booksellers receipt from Cornish and Barber booksellers in 1933 – the year of publication – loosely inserted. Bindings tight. The only signed limited trade edition of Churchills works and one of only two sets to be produced in leather. A very desirable set.
