Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 3, The Coming of War 1936 - 1939

London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1982. 1st Edition. Hardcover. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - seventeen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. This is the rarest, most keenly sought, and most prohibitive to acquire of the Official Biography Companion volumes. There was just a single printing in England and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many Official Biography sets will forever do without. The third is the rarest of the three Volume V Companions. Here is the British first edition, only printing, a superlative, truly fine example in a fine dust jacket that appears unread. This is as good as they come. The red cloth binding is immaculate - clean and tight retaining a nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and virtually no wear. The contents are pristine. There is no sign of the looseness or gutter breaks that so often occur with this massive volume. No spotting. No previous ownership marks. The red topstain retains deep, entirely unfaded color. The fore and bottom edges are as clean and bright as the contents. The dust jacket is crisp, bright, and complete. The front flap price remains intact. We note absolutely no losses or tears. We detect no sunning whatsoever to the spine lettering. Searching for flaws, we note only a trivial hint of wrinkling to a tiny portion of the top edge of the rear face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e3. Fine / Fine. Item #002019
