Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Volume V: The Prophet of Truth, 1922-1939

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1977. First U.S. edition, first printing. 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. The British and U.S. first editions of the eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. This fifth volume of the official biography covers the years 1922 to 1939, from the time when Churchill ended his two decades as a Liberal and returned to the Conservatives and the Cabinet through the wilderness years of the 1930s when he was out of office and out of favor, persistently warning about the growing Nazi threat. This is the first U.S. edition, attractively bound in blue cloth boards with a tan linen spine. Condition is fine in a near fine dust jacket. The binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners, nicely rounded spine, and virtually no wear. The contents are clean and bright with no previous ownership marks and no spotting. Even the page edges are bright and clean. The vivid red dust jacket is notably bright and unfaded with no losses and still retaining both original front flap prices. We note only trivial hints of wear to extremities and a hint of scuffing at the lower spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
