Item Description: Dragonwyck Publishing, Hopkinton, New Hampshire, 1990. Hardcover. First U.S. edition. This is the first U.S. edition, only printing. First published in 1931, India is a collection of 10 speeches by Churchill as part of his campaign against the India Bill, over which he broke with his party’s leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. Churchill spent formative time as a young 19th century cavalry officer fighting on the northwest Indian frontier, about which he would write his first published book. He did not adopt an early progressive attitude toward relinquishing control over the crown jewel of Britain's colonial empire. Nonetheless, it is instructive to remember that many of Churchill's dire warnings about Indian independence proved prophetic. Churchill had warned that too swift a British withdrawal from India would lead to bloody civil war and sectarian strife between Hindus and Muslims, Hindu domination, and destabilizing political balkanization of the subcontinent. All these predictions came to pass and, to a considerable extent, persist today. The 1931 British first edition is most commonly found in orange paper wraps. A much rarer variant was issued in a hardcover binding. This U.S. first edition of 1990 is a beautiful and exacting reproduction of the hardcover variant of the British first edition. Of note, the exterior size, color, and presentation are identical to the original clothbound 1931 first edition. The contents add a new foreword by Manfred Weidhorn. Unfortunately the remaining stock of this excellent reproduction was destroyed by fire and there are no other such modern reprints. Here is a flawlessly fine copy in a fine dust jacket. The binding and contents are immaculate, with no signs of age, use, or previous ownership. The book feels unread. The crisp and complete dust jacket shows no wear or soiling. Shelf presentation is excellent, with perhaps the slightest, barely discernible hint of color shift to the jacket spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

Item Description: Dragonwyck Publishing, Hopkinton, New Hampshire, 1990. Hardcover. First U.S. edition. This is the first U.S. edition, only printing.

Unfortunately the remaining stock of this excellent reproduction was destroyed by fire and there are no other such modern reprints. Here is a notably fine copy. The binding is flawless and completely without wear or soiling. The contents are beautifully crisp and bright. The orange dust jacket, highly prone to sunning, shows absolutely no color shift between the spine and faces. The sole sign of any previous handling or ownership is a decorative bookplate affixed to the front pastedown. The dust jacket is protected with a removable, archival quality clear cover.

Item Description: The British Broadcasting Corporation, London, 1935. Wraps. First edition. This is the first published appearance of Winston S. Churchill’s broadcast address about India of 29 January 1935, The Great Betrayal, printed in the 6 February 1935 Vol. XIII., No. 317 of The Listener. Churchill had served as a cavalry officer in colonial India at the end of Queen Victoria’s reign and had written his first published book-length work about a campaign in which he fought on the northwest Indian frontier. In the 1930’s Churchill vigorously opposed Indian Home Rule, breaking with his party leadership on the subject. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. While Churchill did not adopt an early progressive attitude toward relinquishing control over the crown jewel of Britain's colonial empire, it is instructive to remember that many of Churchill's dire warnings about Indian independence proved prophetic. Churchill had warned that too swift a British withdrawal from India would lead to bloody civil war and sectarian strife between Hindus and Muslims, Hindu domination, and destabilizing political balkanization of the subcontinent. All these predictions came to pass and, to a considerable extent, they persist to this day. Churchill’s 29 February 1935 broadcast address is the headline feature of this issue of The Listener, promoted at the top of the front cover’s list of "Principal Contents" and beginning directly below the table of contents. Churchill’s speech fills 3.5 pages measuring 13 x 9.25 inches, each densely printed in two columns. Condition of the periodical is very good. The self-wrap newsprint wraps are surprisingly clean and well preserved given their age and inherent perishability. We note minor toning and wear to the edges, but the wraps are fully intact and still firmly attached by both original binding staples. The contents are lightly age-toned to the perimeter, but show no previous ownership marks or spotting. Bibliographic reference: Cohen E40, Woods C255. Bookseller Inventory # 003675

Item Description: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., London, 1931. Paperback. Book Condition: Near fine. First edition, second printing. This book comes from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is the first edition, second and final printing, in the softcover ("wraps") binding. India is a collection of 10 speeches made by Churchill, which constituted an important part of his campaign against the India Bill over which he broke with his party’s leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. While Churchill did not adopt an early progressive attitude toward relinquishing control over the crown jewel of Britain's colonial empire, it is instructive to remember that many of Churchill's dire warnings about Indian independence proved prophetic. Churchill had warned that too swift a British withdrawal from India would lead to bloody civil war and sectarian strife between Hindus and Muslims, Hindu domination, and destabilizing political balkanization of the subcontinent. All these predictions came to pass and, to a considerable extent, they persist to this day. This first edition, second printing is bound in the exact same style as the first printing and was issued in the same month as the first printing; it differs only in that it has green, rather than orange, wraps. Due to the fragile nature of a wraps edition, most surviving copies suffer significant wear, soiling, and spotting. Here is a superior copy for collectors in near fine condition. The binding remains square, complete, and firmly attached, with no losses, tears, or fading. Apart from a trivial hint of wear at the corners, the only exterior flaws are an inked first initial and last name to the upper front cover, a tiny stain to the right of the front cover title, and a faint .75 inch moisture stain to the lower front cover. The contents remain notably bright with no previous ownership marks and no internal spotting. A hint of spotting and light soiling is confined to the page edges. An extremely well-preserved copy overall. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A92.1.e, Woods/ICS A38(a.2), Langworth p.150. Bookseller Inventory # 002901

Item Description: Heath Cranton Limited, London, 1931. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good +. 1st Edition. Here is the first edition with an exceptional inscription by the author that fills the half title, reading in 9 lines in black ink: "To Tiny / with best wishes / from an old brother / officer. / Lionel Leslie / 10/6/35 / P.S. These pages contain 90% / eyewash, & don't even aim / at being taken serious. (Author)". This book is notable to Churchill collectors for a generously complimentary Foreword by Churchill dated "April 24th, 1931". Lionel Leslie (1900-1987) was the son of Leonie Leslie (née Jerome), sister of Winston Churchill's mother, making him Winston's cousin. Winston was also Lionel's godfather. Churchill calls Leslie "a realist with a keen if ingenuous eye" and says of the book that it "tells a plain tale in a lively and agreeable fashion, and should be welcomed most of all by those who will envy the author his enjoyable, though sometimes dangerous, roamings." Condition of the book is good plus. The green cloth binding is square and tight, but with wear at the extremities, modest scuffing and soiling to the covers, and toning, staining, and faded print on the spine. The contents remain bright and clean. What likely was a previous owner name at the upper left front pastedown has been crossed out in blue ink and the small sticker of a London bookshop is affixed to the lower front pastedown. We note another previous owner name and date inked to the upper title page. Light interior spotting appears confined to the title and dedication pages, with modest spotting to the page edges. The frontispiece is partially detached, but still anchored at the lower 3 inches. Bibliographic reference: Cohen B46, Woods B16. Bookseller Inventory # 002518

Condition is good plus, particularly given the perishable nature of the edition. This copy bears some wear and soiling, but appears unread. The orange wraps are firmly attached and substantially complete with minor losses to the upper rear and lower front hinges. Spine presentation is nonetheless good, with no creases, all print intact, and only a hint of the usual spine toning. The orange wraps are lightly soiled overall, with slight wear at the corners and some horizontal creasing to the first 1.5 inches of the front cover at the fore edge. The contents remain tight and clean with no internal spotting. There is a single inked previous owner name at the head of the title page.

Item Description: Thornton Butterworth Limited, London, 1931. Paperback. Book Condition: Very good. First edition, first printing. This is the first edition, first printing, in the softcover ("wraps") binding. India is a collection of 10 speeches made by Churchill as part of his campaign against the India Bill over which he broke with his party leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. Churchill did not adopt an early progressive attitude toward relinquishing control over the crown jewel of Britain's colonial empire. However, it is instructive to remember that many of Churchill's dire warnings about Indian independence proved prophetic. Churchill had warned that too swift a British withdrawal from India would lead to bloody civil war and sectarian strife between Hindus and Muslims, Hindu domination, and destabilizing political balkanization of the subcontinent. All came to pass and much persists to this day. Here is the striking but fragile orange wraps binding of the first edition, first printing. Condition is very good given the perishable nature of the edition. This copy is notable for a highly complete binding with only fractional loss at the spine ends and corners. The binding remains square and tight and firmly attached, the spine shows no vertical creasing, and the copy appears unread. Nonetheless, the orange wraps are somewhat dulled and soiled, with some staining, particularly at the fore edge. The front cover shows a small scuff just below the price leaving a tiny hole, and bears some wear and soiling. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is light, appearing confined to the first and final few pages and page edges. The binding is protected with a removable, clear mylar cover.

Spine faded else cover bright. Minor crease to top front corner with small mark below. Some minor rubbing to rear edges. A couple of spots to outer page edges. Else a very clean and tight copy. 141pp. Cat.3pp. "India" is, like many of Churchill's speeches a scarce item. It was simultaneously published in hard-back and in the limp cover edition (see above), both editions equally scarce. "The political significance of this little volume is that the subject matter and Churchill's own stance on the question of India largely contributed to his many years in the wilderness during the 1930's period of personal depression in his political fortunes, yet, curiously, a period of preparation, because by distancing himself from so many others, he then became acceptable to all as wartime Prime Minister" (BMC).

Item Description: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., London, 1931. Hardcover. First edition, first printing. This is the first edition, first printing, first state of the hardcover binding with horizontal spine title. India is a collection of 10 speeches made by Churchill as part of his campaign against the India Bill, over which he broke with his party’s leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. Churchill spent formative time as a young 19th century cavalry officer fighting on the northwest Indian frontier, about which he would write his first published book. He did not adopt an early progressive attitude toward relinquishing control over the crown jewel of Britain's colonial empire. Nonetheless, it is instructive to remember that many of Churchill's dire warnings about Indian independence proved prophetic. Churchill had warned that too swift a British withdrawal from India would lead to bloody civil war and sectarian strife between Hindus and Muslims, Hindu domination, and destabilizing political balkanization of the subcontinent. All these predictions came to pass and, to a considerable extent, persist today. The first edition is most commonly found in orange paper wraps. However, there was also a hardcover binding, itself with two variants - the first with the spine title reading horizontally, followed by a hardcover variant with the spine title reading vertically as it does on the wraps issues. Per Churchill Bibliographer Ronald Cohen (Vol. I, A92, pp. 372-375) the horizontal title binding preceded the vertical title variant. Of course the hardcovers are quite considerably more rare than their wraps counterparts. Here is the first edition, first printing hardcover with horizontal spine title. This copy is in good plus condition. The binding is tight and square with only light wear to extremities, but faded, soiled, and stained. The contents are in quite good condition, bright with only light spotting which appears limited to the prelims and page edges. We find a very faded, mostly illegible fragment of what appears to be a previous owner name on the front and rear pastedowns.

Item Description: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd., London, 1931. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good. 1st Edition. This 1931 publication is a collection of 10 speeches by Churchill as part of his campaign against the India Bill over which he broke with his party leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. The first edition is most commonly found in orange paper wraps. A much rarer version of the first edition was issued in a cased (hardcover) binding, featuring a bright orange coarse cloth. A second printing of the first edition was issued in the same month as the first printing. According to Churchill bibliographer Ronald Cohen: "Few cased copies of the second printing are known." Here is one of those very few - a hardcover first edition, second printing. Moreover, this copy retains the front flap of the extravagantly rare dust jacket. The orange cloth binding is bright and square with sharp corners. The spine is lightly soiled, but not sunned and retaining strong color. There are some holes along the hinge gutters, the largest being 1/2 inch x 1/16 inch at the rear hinge. This defect appears to be the result of thin binding cloth and is consonant with similar defects we have observed on other copies. Despite the flaw, the binding remains tight and sound. The contents are clean, bright, and tight. No spotting. No previous ownership marks. Since this copy bears an important fragment of the original dust jacket, we include a copy of a first edition India dust jacket from our reference collection. We have placed this full dust jacket copy and the original front flap inside a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A92.1.d, Woods/ICS A38(a.2), Langworth p.150.

Item Description: London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd, 1931, 1931. Octavo. Original orange wrappers, spine and covers printed in black. Housed in a red half morocco slipcase by Maltby's of Oxford. Tiny puncture to top left-hand side of front wrapper and first 5 leaves, slight spotting to edges of text block but overall a remarkably bright copy. Excellent. First edition, first impression, wrappered issue (the book was issued simultaneously in hardback). The 1930s are characterized as Churchill's wilderness years, with his unrelenting opposition to Hitler being seen as main cause for his ostracism. However "another, and earlier reason lay in his bitter opposition to Baldwin's India policy Churchill had always hit hard; not for him a round of gentlemanly sparring between friends. His fight to maintain full control of India employed not just the clenched fist but the bludgeon" (Woods, Artillery of Words). Cohen A92.1.c; Woods A38. Bookseller Inventory # 111354

A much rarer variant was issued in a hardcover binding with two variants - one with the spine title reading horizontally and one with the spine title reading vertically as it does on the wraps issues. Offered here is a truly collector-grade, near-fine+ example of this elusive hardbound first edition with the vertical spine title. The orange cloth boards are bright with virtually no wear, square corners, and only minor soiling. The spine also has bright, unfaded color with only minor soiling and virtually no wear or wrinkling. Even the corners and spine ends are sharp and without wear. The contents are clean, bright, and tight. The only previous ownership mark is a small, faint owner name - mercifully in pencil - on the ffep. Spotting is almost entirely absent - we note exactly five tiny spots confined to the title page. There is absolutely no spotting visible anywhere else. Even the text block edges are spot-free. This hardbound first printing is extremely rare in any conditon and particularly so thus.

Item Description: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., London, 1931. Hardcover. First edition, first printing.. This is a premium example of the elusive first issue of the hardcover binding of the first edition. India is a collection of 10 speeches made by Churchill as part of his campaign against the India Bill, over which he broke with his party’s leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. Churchill spent formative time as a young 19th century cavalry officer fighting on the northwest Indian frontier, about which he would write his first published book.

A much rarer variant was issued in a hardcover binding with two variants - one with the spine title reading horizontally and one with the spine title reading vertically as it does on the wraps issues. Per Churchill Bibliographer Ronald Cohen (pp. 372-375) the horizontal title binding preceded the vertical title variant. Offered here is a compelling example of this elusive hardbound first edition with horizontal spine title. Condition is near fine. The orange cloth binding remains square and tight with sharp corners and virtually no wear. Most impressive for the edition, the spine has been spared the usual sunning and retains bright color, with virtually no color shift between the covers and spine. We note only minor overall soiling to the coarse cloth binding. The binding is now protected with a removable, clear mylar cover. The contents are likewise excellent. Trivial spotting is confined to the text block fore edge. The sole previous ownership mark, intriguingly, is female and dated "June 1931." Note that publication was 27 May 1931. The previous owner name and date is inked on the upper front free endpaper. We also note a few instances of orange color bleed from either the dust jacket or the binding at the edges of the endsheets. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A92.1.a, Woods/ICS A38(a), Langworth p.150.
