London (1956-58): Cassell & Co. First Edition. Hard Cover with Dust Jacket. Near Fine/Near Fine. Large Octavo. Four volumes, all first printings, bound in publisher's original red cloth; top edges stained red.

A nice example of a fragile work, of which Churchill quipped, "It opens like an angel's wings."
