Toronto: Liberty Weekly of Canada, 29 June 1940. First edition. Periodical. This is a Canadian portrait of Winston S. Churchill, published the month after he became wartime prime minister. This five page article is the first in a multipart series on Winston Churchill’s family history with a specific focus on his American mother, Jennie Jerome (1854-1921).
This fragile periodical is in very good condition. Internally the pages are clean and crisp for a magazine of this age. We note no tears, creases, or spotting, and toning is light and even. The front and rear covers retain their vibrant color with light overall soiling. The wire stitched binding is secure. This issue also includes an essay by Mahatma Gandhi. Item #002392
