A Bibliography of the Writings of Sir Winston Churchill, complete three-volume set in original publisher's shrink wrap and shipping box, to be inscribed by the author per the new owner's preference

London & New York: Thoemmes Continuum, an imprint of The Continuum International Publishing Group, 2006. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is an as-new set of the definitive bibliography of Sir Winston Churchill's published writings, still in the original publisher's shrink wrap and shipping box. This set is from the few remaining sets retained by the author, and will be personally inscribed by him in each volume per the new owner's wishes following purchase. Ronald Cohen's mammoth bibliographic effort reflects his singular experience as both a collector and bibliographer of Churchill's work. Nearly 25 years of exhaustive research went into this three-volume, 2,183 page Bibliography of the Writings of Sir Winston Churchill. No less an authority than Sir Martin Gilbert effusively praised Ron's work, calling it: "...a high point - and surely a peak - of Churchill bibliographic research... adding not only to the bibliographer's art, but to knowledge of Winston Churchill himself." Ron's Bibliography seeks to detail every single edition, issue, state, printing and variant of every printed work authored by, or with a contribution from, Winston S. Churchill. This includes full bibliographical descriptions and background on publications wholly by Churchill, his contributions to the published work of others, articles by Churchill in serial publications, reports of speeches by Churchill in other published works, and other categories of published Churchill contributions and communications. The result is a necessary and greatly improved replacement for Fredrick Woods' worthy, but limited and now quite dated bibliographic work on Churchill. The books are attractively bound in blue buckram with gilt stamping and red spine title boxes. The contents are printed on acid-free paper and each volume bears a red satin ribbon marker. This work is indispensable to any serious Churchill collector. That said, availability is limited, as publication was limited to 400 copies. This pristine set will come to you exactly as it shipped from the publisher. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A762. New / New. Item #002846
