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, an excellent, near-fine plus example in a near-fine plus dust jacket. The red cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and bright gilt. Flaws are trivial - a bit of wrinkling at the spine ends and a hint of scuffing to the fore edge of the front cover. The contents are immaculately bright and clean. No spotting. No previous ownership names or bookplates. No soiling. The red-stained top edge retains perfect, deep, uniform and entirely unfaded color. The dust jacket is bright, clean, and unclipped, still bearing the original front flap price. We note no tears or losses. The only trivial flaw detected is a hint of wrinkling, primarily at the extreme spine ends, which virtually disappears beneath the removable, archival quality clear dust jacket protector. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e3. Near fine / Near fine. Item #002142
