About this Item

First edition, first issue. Illustrated throughout with twenty-one photographic portraits. 8vo, publisherís original blue cloth, gilt-lettered on the upper cover and spine. [iv], 330, index pp. A very fine and pleasing copy with virtually no evidence of age or use, just a touch of mellowing or light spotting to the extremites. About as fine a copy as one can expect to find, completely free of the foxing and spotting typically found on this title, even on the page edges which are so rarely found clean. With the bookplate of U.N. Committee member from Sweden and one time president of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, Ingrid Anders Wiberg. AN IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION AND A VALUABLE LOOK INTO THE MAKERS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. This is Churchillís great multi-biography of the men he considered to be the greatest figures of his time. Among the notables rank; George Bernard Shaw, Adolf Hitler, T.E. Lawrence, Curzon, King George, Hindenburg and others. These short sketches by Churchill were penned between 1928 and 1936. A fascinating look at the great men of the age by someone who is not simply a biographer but unquestionable a peer. Bookseller Inventory # 25404
