Pinsel Und Palette. Winston S. Churchill.

Pinsel Und Palette

Verlag Hallwag Bern, 1950. Hardcover. This essay about Churchill's famous hobby had been printed in The Strand Magazine as early as 1921, but this is the first printing as a separate bound volume. Winston's wife Clementine had opposed the idea of her husband opining in print on the subject, concerned that he might be belittled by professional painters and others. But such was his passion and so tempting the generous financial offer to write the piece that he went ahead anyway, adding something truly personal and different to the great body of his writing. Here is the German edition. The green cloth binding is unfaded with no wear and square corners, but with color variations evidently from some moisture exposure. The contents are bright and clean, but bearing faint moisture stains here and there. There are no ownership marks apart from some bookseller notation in pencil on the last endpaper. Bibliographic reference: Woods/ICS A125/Ge, Langworth p.293. Good. Item #000079
