Description:
Raphael Tuck & Sons, Ltd., [1941]. The historic secret Atlantic Conference was held between August 9th and 12th, 1941 on a warship anchored in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland. At that momentous meeting, the two leaders and their military aides agreed upon critical policies for the conduct of a joint war against Germany, even though the U.S. was still officially neutral and would remain so until December 8. The meetings culminated in the Atlantic Charter, a declaration of principles issued a few days after the conference. Often compared to Wilson's Fourteen Points, the Charter also laid the foundation for the United Nations Declaration, signed by 26 nations in January 1942.

Description:
Washington, DC: The White House, Christmastide,, 1942. Presentation copy from FDR to his Secretary of War First edition, number 6 of 100 copies only, inscribed by Roosevelt to his secretary of war on the front free endpaper: "For Henry L. Stimson with the affectionate regards of his old friend Franklin D. Roosevelt Christmas 1942". A superb association copy of this volume collecting Roosevelt and Churchill's early war speeches. Stimson (1867-1950) served as US secretary of war from 1940 to 1945, the whole period of US involvement in the Second World War, under both Roosevelt and Truman. In a very long career, he had also served as secretary of war under President Taft from 1911 to 1913, and as secretary of state from 1929 to 1933 under President Hoover. A lifelong Republican, Stimson was appointed to the position to strengthen bipartisan support for Roosevelt's foreign policy and preparation for war. Despite their political differences, the pair had a strong working relationship. Stimson's overall… Read More

Description:
Colonial Office, Downing Street, London, 17 July 1922. This is Winston Churchills 17 July 1922 autograph signed letter to T. E. Lawrence accepting Lawrences resignation from the Colonial Office, accompanied by the original, franked envelope addressed and initialed in Churchills hand. This letter underscores the friendship and collaboration of two titanic twentieth century personalities and their shared work in securing post-First World War peace and political stability in the Middle East. From early 1921 to mid-1922, T. E. Lawrence of Arabia worked for then-Secretary of State for the Colonies Winston S. Churchill. Churchill had asked a reticent Lawrence to commit for a year. He gave Churchill more than he had promised, both in time and in achieved outcomes. Then, in July 1922, Churchill reluctantly released Lawrence from service. The autograph letter signed by Churchill fills the entire 8 x 10 inch (20.3 x 25.4 cm) front panel of a single, folded sheet of Churchills Colonial Office. Downing Street,… Read More

Description:
31 January, 1931. WARS AND RUMOURS OF WAR WOULD CEASE FOREVER" - THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS AND DISARMAMENT Extensively corrected typescript for one of a series of articles on foreign affairs commissioned from Churchill by the Hearst newspapers, every page with authorial proofing, corrections, emendations, and interpolations. Churchill takes as his theme the recent report of the Preparatory Commission on Disarmament presented to the League of Nations. In his powerful and highly influential article of 1924 "Shall we commit suicide?" Churchill had said that "to sustain and aid the League of Nations is the duty of all", but his support was always more in hope than expectation. Here he comments with world-weary cynicism on responses to the Commission. "All the foreign Ministers of all the countries lifted up their voices and sang for joy that peace and concord would now reign... and that disarmament, wars and rumours of wars would cease for ever." But in reality there was no such harmony, and the "victorious… Read More

Description:
London: Thornton Butterworth Limited,, 1930. Churchill's "elegiac" autobiography - in the famously elusive dust jacket First edition, first impression, in a very presentable example of the extremely rare dust jacket, retaining much of its vibrant colour. A conspicuously attractive copy of Churchill's "witty and elegiac account of his youth shot through with regret at the decline of the social and imperial order in which he had grown up" (ODNB). My Early Life, Churchill's first volume of sustained biography, is a highly entertaining account of his childhood, schooldays at Harrow, military training at Sandhurst, experiences as a war correspondent in Cuba, and service attached to the Malakand Field Force on the NW Frontier of India, charging with the 21st Lancers at Omdurman, and as a POW in South Africa during the Boer War. This copy is of the second state, with 12 lines of Churchill titles on the half-title verso, and in the second state binding, with 5-line lettering to the front cover (the first… Read More

Description:
London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd,, 1933-38. Took its place at once among the classics of historical writing First edition, signed limited issue, number 55 of 155 copies signed by the author. This is the only signed limited issue of any of Churchill's writings; few sets retain the original slipcases, fewer still in such nice condition. Churchill's ancestor the 1st Duke of Marlborough led allied forces to victory against Louis XIV. Churchill worked on his biography for almost a decade, and was given exclusive access to the Blenheim archives to research the book. On publication, the work "took its place at once among the classics of historical writing. As the story of his ancestor's leadership of a grand alliance to prevent the domination of the continent by a single power, it was also a source of inspiration to Churchill in his campaign against appeasement" (ODNB). 4 volumes, large octavo.

Description:
London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. First edition. Hardcover. This is an extraordinary inscribed and annotated British first edition set of Churchill's history of the First World War. Each of the five books (the 1916-1918 book was issued in two volumes) is inscribed and dated by Churchill to his Aunt Clara. Clarita "Clara" Jerome Frewen (1851-1935) was the eldest sister of Churchill's mother and wife of Moreton Frewen, the famously slipshod editor of Churchill's first book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force. Three inscriptions are dated pre-publication and all five are warmly personal, with Churchill using only his first name. The inscriptions alone would make the set a prize, but it is the second family association that makes the set a unique piece of history. The books passed to Clara's son and Churchill's first cousin, Captain Oswald Moreton Frewen (1887-1958). Oswald was a career naval officer who served under Churchill's leadership as First Lord of the Admiralty during both… Read More

Description:
Thornton Butter worth Limited, London, 1923. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. First English edition. All First editions. First Published April, 1923 stated on copyright page of first volume, and then all other volumes have subsequent dates. Volume 3 is INSCRIBED by Churchill on a front free end paper to Kenneth Dewar, who was a prominent and controversial figure in the British navy as well as a top adviser to Churchill. From Wikipedia --Churchill wrote an anti-Jellicoe tract in his World Crisis, Volume III which in large measure shared Dewar's views on tactics and even some diagrams.[38] Although Dewar would later become a supporter of the Labour Party, after Churchill was passed over for a cabinet position in 1931 Dewar wrote to him on 16 November, "I am very sorry to see that you are not in the new Cabinet. I had hoped you would go to the Admiralty and do very necessary work for the Navy." Volume 4 is annotated by Dewar with some fascinating comments on Churchill's version of events in… Read More

Description:
London: Thornton Butterworth Limited,, 1930. Presented to his close friend, ally, and future wartime Air Secretary First edition, first impression, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the initial binder's blank to his lifelong friend and colleague Archibald Sinclair: "To Archie from Winston. Oct 14. 1930". Sinclair's military and political career shadowed Churchill's. Like Churchill he had an American mother, was a cavalry officer, and went from soldiering to politics. Churchill appointed him his second-in-command of the 6th Royal Scots Fusiliers in 1916. After periods with the Life Guards and the Guards Machine Gun Regiment, Sinclair rejoined Churchill at the Ministry of Munitions in 1918, became his personal military secretary at the War Office in 1919, and his private secretary at the Colonial Office in 1921. Sinclair was elected to the House of Commons as Liberal MP for Caithness and Sutherland from 1922 to 1945, led the parliamentary Liberal party from 1935 to 1945, and was Secretary… Read More

This is the only signed limited issue of any of Churchill's writings. "Rarely in the history of historical writing have author and subject seemed so made for each other as were Churchill and the Duke of Marlborough. Churchill's literary skill enables us to understand Marlborough, but Marlborough, in turn, contributed to and advanced the education of Churchill... we can say that the writing of Marlborough helped prepare [Churchill] for the prodigious challenge that lay ahead" (Henry Steele Commager, introduction to the edition of 1968). During the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1715) Churchill's ancestor, the first Duke of Marlborough, led allied forces to victory against Louis XIV; his signal successes at Blenheim, Ramillies,… Read More

Churchill Lectures in America. On December 1, 1900, Churchill sailed for New York to begin a two month speaking tour of North America organized by Major James Pond. The young Churchill was fresh from the battlefield of four of Queen Victoria's wars, where he served a dual role as officer and war correspondent. His lecture, "The War as I Saw It," was a telling of his views on the South African War and his escape from captivity, all illustrated with magic lantern slides. Major James Burton Pond (1838-1903) was a lecture promoter who, in addition to Churchill, represented Samuel Clemens, Arthur Conan Doyle and Henry Stanley. Churchill… Read More

Description:
London: Odhams Press Limited, 1936-1939. Winston Churchill, in addition to his careers of soldier and politician, was a prolific writer under the pen name 'Winston S. Churchill'. After being commissioned into the 4th Queen's Own Hussars in 1895, Churchill gained permission to observe the Cuban War of Independence, and sent war reports to The Daily Graphic. He continued his war journalism in British India, at the Siege of Malakand, then in the Sudan during the Mahdist War and in southern Africa during the Second Boer War. Churchill's fictional output included one novel and a short story, but his main output comprised non-fiction. After he was elected as an MP, over 130 of his speeches or parliamentary answers were also published in pamphlets or booklets; many were subsequently published in collected editions. Churchill received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 "for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted… Read More
