Synopsis: This connoisseur's guide to Winston Churchill's books is not a bibliography ? it is a compact book which students, scholars, collectors and dealers can refer to when hunting for, or reading, the literature of Winston Churchill. Written by an expert on the books of Churchill, its purpose is to inform people exactly what they are holding in their hands and, of course, how to tell a first edition from a reprint. There is a description of the nature of each book, an appraisal of Churchill's arguments and the way he makes them; excerpts from reviews both contemporary and modern; aesthetic judgements as to the merit of acquiring each edition discussed, from jacketed first editions to paperbacks, and notes on the values of various editions.
