Condition: See description


London: The Liberal Publication Department, 1911. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. Contained in this bound volume is the first edition, only printing of this scarce Churchill speech leaflet. In 1910 Winston Churchill was a young lion of the Liberal Party, vexing the British establishment and helping Lloyd George lay the foundations of the modern welfare state. Here is the original 1910 leaflet publishing Churchill's November 14 letter stating vehement opposition to the veto power of the House of Lords. This leaflet captures the young radical Churchill in full flower. "Was ever inequality more scandalous? Was ever injustice more glaring? All classes are to have votes; but only Tory votes are to count. WE CAN SUBMIT NO LONGER TO THIS USAGE. THIS IS OUR LAND AS MUCH AS IT IS THEIRS." The leaflet is two pages, published by the Liberal Publications Department as Leaflet No. 2358 on November 18, 1910. It is bound in this volume containing Liberal Party speeches and pamphlets for the year 1910. The binding is black leather pebble grain spine over green ribbed cloth covers, and the book measures 8.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide by 1 inch thick. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets. The book is a fascinating piece of history, containing pamphlets and leaflets of various shapes and sizes, many of which are folded in and, we imagine, are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. Condition of the bound volume is very good. The leather spine shows a little wear at the head and tail but retains bright gilt, and the leather shows no drying or cracking at the hinges. The green boards are bright with square corners and show only minor scuffing and a few tiny discoloration spots on the top board. The volume has clearly never been read. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are immaculate - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. The top edge retains bright gilt. No spotting and no inscriptions.
