About This Item

London: National Unon of Conservative and Unionist Associations, 1948. 1st Edition. Paperback. Near fine. This booklet contains the first printed appearance of Churchill's speech of 9 October 1948 at the 69th Annual Conservative Party Conference. Three years earlier, Churchill's Conservatives had been soundly defeated in the General Election at the end of the war. Churchill would head opposition to the Labour Government until the General Election of 1951, which returned the Conservatives to majority and Churchill to the office of Prime Minister. At the 69th Annual Conservative Party Conference, Churchill delivered a 65-minute address to a crowd of about 2,500 in the Pier Pavilion, Llandudno, Wales. This address appears at pp.149-56 of this 160-page "Verbatim Report of the Proceedings together with the Text of Mr. Churchill's Speech". The booklet measures 9.75 inches x 6 inches and is bound in blue card wraps. Condition is near-fine . The blue card binding is unfaded, square, and tight, with sharp corners and a perfect, uncreased spine. The contents are clean and bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. The speech herein was later printed in Europe Unite at pp.409-24 under the title "Conservative Mass Meeting" and later still in Winston S. Churchill: His Complete Speeches, Vol. VII, pp.7707-17 under the title "Perils at Home and Abroad". The booklet is protected in a removable, archival mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen D134, Woods D(b)70/I
