Item Description: Carroll & Graf, New York, 1991. Paperback. Book Condition: Good plus. First paperback edition. The author Celia Sandys (1943-) is the daughter of Winston Churchill's eldest child, Diana and Cabinet Minister Duncan Sandys. Drawing on both research and her intimate family experience, she is the author of several books about Churchill's life. In this, her second book, she examines her grandfather's time on the African continent during the Anglo-Boer War. From the battle sites of Transvaal to Churchill's incarceration and daring escape, Sandys follows her grandfather's path, interviewing the descendants of the people who both aided and opposed Churchill in his famed escape from the Boer prison camp. Accompanying the account are pages of historic photos and maps. The binding on this paperback edition is tight with an unbroken spine. The front and rear top and fore corner are slightly bent, and there is a crease on the front cover along the spine. On the rear cover there is a price sticker from a previous bookseller and a remainder mark on the bottom edge. The left spine edge is a bit worn with some loss of color, otherwise the outward appearance is bright and without fading. The contents are bright, clean, and without any previous ownership marks.

Item Description: St. Martin's Press, New York, 1973. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. The so-called Siege of Sidney Street was a famous moment in Churchill's early career and the dust jacket of this book features a famous image of Churchill. However, as stated by Churchill bibliographer Curt Zoller, "Although the subtitle implies extensive coverage of Churchill, the book has few comments on Churchill and the subtitle seems to be a sales gimmick." This copy of the first edition, only printing, is fine in a fine dust jacket. The binding and contents are both clean and bright and the book appears unread. The dust jacket is unclipped, clean, and bright, with the only evident imperfection being a .5 inch closed tear at the upper edge of the rear face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Zoller B649. Bookseller Inventory # 001895

Item Description: Simon and Schuster, New York, 1991. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First edition. First American edition. The Private Lives of Winston Churchill was intended to be a sort of tell-all, behind the scenes look at the life of Churchill. According to the dust jacket the book will reveal "the high costs of the family's accomplishments and the suffering behind the seemingly glamorous exploits." Bibliographer Curt Zoller dismisses the book as pure sensationalism, writing that it "purports to explain why Churchill's children, except for Mary, turned out so bad. A vitriolic attack, full of misquotes and out-of-context excerpts, that demonstrates the depths to which Churchillophobia can sink. Cannot be taken seriously." Photos of Churchill's friends and family accompany the text. Condition is fine in a fine dust jacket. The binding is black cloth over speckled, tan paper covered boards. It is tight, square, and clean. The contents are clean, bright, free of spotting, and without any previous ownership marks. The unclipped dust jacket is clean with no fading, loss, or tears and is protected in a removable, archival quality cover. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A549. Bookseller Inventory # 002800

Item Description: Randolph S. Churchill, William Heinemann Ltd., London, 1967. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good. 1st Edition. 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. These two volumes accompany the first volume of Churchill's Official Biography and cover the years 1874 to 1900, from his birth, to his early career as a soldier and war correspondent, to his return to England from an American lecture tour in order to embark on his storied political career. Here is a fine unjacketed set marred by a flaw to the text block edge of Part 1. The red cloth boards and spines are clean and unfaded with square corners, bright gilt, and only trivial shelf wear. The contents are crisp, clean, bright, and tight with no spotting and no inscriptions. They appear unread. The red-stained top edges retain deep unfaded color. Unfortunately, some liquid - likely coffee from the color - once dripped on top edge of Part 2 and ran down the fore edge. The result is a small stain at the top edge and a .25 inch wide brown vertical stain that runs the length of the text block fore edge. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302a.

Item Description: Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1978. Hardcover. First edition. John Hoyer Updike (1932-2009) was an American writer and literary critic. His most famous books the "Rabbit" series won him two Pulitzer Prizes, in 1982 and 1991. This first edition copy of The Coup is in fine condition in a near fine dust jacket. The green cloth binding is immaculate with square corners. The contents are unread - crisp, clean, bright, and tight with no internal spotting and no inscriptions. The uncut fore edges are likewise pristine. The sole flaw is spotting to the top edge. The unclipped dust jacket is bright and clean with no losses and just trivial hints of wear at corners. From the jacket blurb: "John Updike's new novel describes violent events in the imaginary African nation of Kush - a large, landlocked, drought-ridden, sub-Saharan territory ruled by Colonel Hakim Felix Ellellou. Colonel Ellellou has four wives, a silver Mercedes, and a fanatic aversion - cultural, ideological, and personal - to the United States". Bookseller Inventory # 000084.3
