Liberalism and the Social Problem

London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1909. 1st Edition. Hardcover. First edition, first printing. This is Churchill's third book of speeches from his period as an ardent reformer and a bright star of the Liberal Party. Churchill's speeches in this volume address a broad range of social issues still topical today, with the young Churchill trying to chart a progressive course between reactionary conservatism and radical socialism. With only 3,500 first printing copies issued, collector worthy copies have become scarce. Here is such a copy. Of particular note are the contents, which are unusually bright and entirely free of any spotting. There is typical light soiling to the text block top edge. Inked owner initials on the ffep and a vintage New York bookshop sticker on the rear pastedown are the only interior markings. The dark red cloth binding is tight and square, retaining a nicely rounded spine and bright gilt. The spine of this edition proved highly vulnerable to sunning. This copy shows only light sunning and has much better than average spine presentation. There is trivial wear at the corners and the usual puckering at the spine ends, with a tiny tear and negligible fraying at the base of the spine. There is also a small, circular indentation on the rear face. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A29.1.a, Woods/ICS A15(a), Langworth p.92. Very good. Item #001273
