Great Contemporaries

Great Contemporaries is a collection of 25 short biographical essays about famous people written by Winston Churchill. The original collection of 21 essays published in 1937 were mainly written between 1928 and 1931.

Great Contemporaries

Winston S. Churchill

London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1937. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is the British first edition, first printing, increasingly elusive thus in the first printing dust jacket. Great Contemporaries is Churchill's much-praised collection of insightful essays about 21 leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. This copy is very good in a very good dust jacket. The blue cloth binding remains square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and bright gilt, marred only by minor surface delamination of the buckram, possibly due to brief moisture exposure, mostly confined to the bottom of the rear cover with smaller spots on the front cover at the bottom edge and just below and to the left of the author’s name. The contents are bright and clean with no previous ownership marks. Minor spotting is almost entirely confined to the otherwise clean fore and bottom edges. The blue stained top edge is only mildly sunned, retaining respectable color. While there were six printings of the first edition between October and December of 1937, but from the second printing on there are differences to the dust jackets, rendering the first printing dust jacket unique. This is the first printing dust jacket, which retains its striking orange color with no sunning to the spine. The jacket is unclipped, retaining the original lower front flap price, and substantially complete. We note light overall soiling and short closed tears and minor loss to the spine ends and flap fold corners, as well as a tiny hole along the lower rear hinge. Nonetheless, this is a bright and nearly complete example of an increasingly elusive 1930s dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, clear, archival cover. The character sketches herein offer remarkable portraits of both their subjects and the author. Churchill's piece about Hitler can be a shock to the modern ear, as it underscores his ability to write a balanced appraisal of his subject while expressing his earnest desire to avoid the war that he would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years later. There is a reason this book is still in print today. It was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill's balanced and nuanced perspectives provide salutary contrast to many of today's more polemic writers. And naturally, in the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill necessarily reveals some of his own character and perspective. Churchill's portrait of T.E. Lawrence, published here just a few years before the Second World War, might well have been written about the author rather than by him: "The impression of the personality of Lawrence remains living and vivid upon the minds of his friends, and the sense of his loss is in no way dimmed among his countrymen. All feel the poorer that he has gone from us. In these days dangers and difficulties gather upon Britain and her Empire, and we are also conscious of a lack of outstanding figures with which to overcome them. Here was a man in whom there existed not only an immense capacity for service, but that touch of genius which everyone recognizes and no one can define." (Great Contemporaries, p.164) While some of the subjects of Churchill's sketches have receded into history, many remain well-known and all remain compellingly drawn.

Great Contemporaries

Winston S. Churchill

London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1938. First Revised and Expanded Edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is the British first revised and expanded edition, first printing, in dust jacket. This edition, published in 1938 soon after the first edition of 1937, added four new essays (Fisher, Parnell, Baden-Powell, and - of great interest - Roosevelt). As is the case with the first edition, first printing, the dust jacket for the 1938 revised edition is both elusive and desirable, and the binding quite prone to sunning and dulling in its absence. This British first revised edition, first printing, is a very good plus copy in a very good minus dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is clean and square with sharp corners, and almost no appreciable wear. While the spine gilt is modestly dulled, the blue spine cloth is unfaded, with no discernible color shift between the covers and spine. The contents are clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Differential toning to the endpapers confirms that this copy has always been jacketed. A trivial hint of light spotting is confined to the page edges. This edition's attractive dust jacket bears a photograph of Churchill on a large blue panel. The dust jacket is unclipped and has good spine presentation, with only small losses to the spine ends. Nonetheless, the jacket shows wear. There are closed tears and some attendant wrinkling to a depth of 1.25 inches, two chips at the upper edge of the rear face of .25 x .75 and 1.25 x .5 inches, and a one-inch circular hole at the lower right corner of the front face above the price. Despite these flaws this is a respectable example of a scarce dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. Great Contemporaries is Churchill's much-praised collection of insightful essays about leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. Churchill's piece about Hitler can be a shock to the modern ear, as it underscores his ability to write a balanced appraisal of his subject while expressing his earnest desire to avoid the war that he would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years later. Neville Chamberlain, perhaps Churchill’s most vexing political opponent at the time, wrote to Churchill on 4 October 1937 to say: “How you can go on throwing off these sparkling sketches with such apparent ease & such sustained brilliance… is a constant source of wonder to me. But the result is to give great pleasure and entertainment…” There is a reason this book is still in print today. It was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill's balanced and nuanced perspectives favorably contrast with many of today's more polemic writers. In the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill necessarily reveals much of his own character and perspective. Churchill's portrait of T.E. Lawrence, published here just a few years before the Second World War, might well have been written about the author rather than by him: "The impression of the personality of Lawrence remains living and vivid upon the minds of his friends, and the sense of his loss is in no way dimmed among his countrymen.

Great Contemporaries

Winston S. Churchill

New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1937. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. This is Churchill's much praised collection of insightful essays about 21 leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. About Hitler, Churchill writes: "We cannot tell whether Hitler will be the man who will once again let loose upon the world another war in which civilization will irretrievably succumb, or whether he will go down in history as the man who restored honour and peace of mind to the great Germanic nation and brought it back serene, helpful and strong, to the forefront of the European family circle." The book was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill also reveals key glimpses into his own character and perspective. This is as fascinating a read today as it was in 1937. Offered here is the first U.S. edition, first printing, a fine copy in a very good dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is tight, clean and square, with sharp corners and virtually no wear. The contents are clean and tight. No spotting. No inscriptions. The red-stained top edge retains vivid, unfaded color. The correct, first printing dust jacket is unclipped, still bearing the original $4.00 price on the front flap. The jacket is also unfaded, retaining unusually bright blue color, even on the spine. The jacket does suffer some wear. There is chipping at the spine ends, along the bottom edge of the front face, and at the top edge of the rear face, the largest being a 1.75 wide by .5 inch deep triangular loss at the rear face. There is also a faint vertical crease at the spine and wear at the front flap fold. Nonetheless, this is a better than usual copy of a scarce first printing dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A105.2.a, Woods/ICS A43(ab.1), Langworth p.179.

The blue cloth binding is clean, bright, and square, with sharp corners, marred only by a bit of flaking to two of the five red spine panels. The contents are clean and bright with no inscriptions and no spotting. There is some transfer browning at the pastedowns and endpapers and the red-stained top edge is sunned. The dust jacket is bright, clean, and unclipped, still bearing the original $4.00 price. Of particular note, the spine retains deep, unfaded blue color. Wear is primarily confined to extremities, particularly at the spine ends and top edge of the front face. The spine shows chipping at both ends, to a depth of .25 inch at the top of the spine, .75 inch at the bottom of the spine. There is a .75 by 1.75 inch triangular loss at the top edge of the front face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

This British first revised edition, first printing, is very good plus in a flawed dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and only trivial shelf wear to extremities. Of particular note, both the boards and spine retain unusually bright color and vivid gilt. Even most jacketed copies do not remain quite this bright, with spine dulling the norm. The contents are bright within and show no previous ownership marks, but we do note spotting to the page edges. Transfer browning to the endpapers from the pastedown glue corresponds to the dust jacket flaps, confirming that this copy has spent life jacketed. The dust jacket shows a large loss to the upper spine to a maximum depth of 1.25 inches and extending to the upper front and rear faces. We note a smaller loss to the lower spine and short closed tears and wrinkling to the edges. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

Great Contemporaries

Winston S. Churchill

London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1938. First revised and expanded edition. Hardcover. Very good plus/Fair. This book comes from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is the British first revised and expanded edition, first printing, in dust jacket. Originally published in 1937, Great Contemporaries is Churchill's much-praised collection of insightful essays about 21 leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. Churchill's piece about Hitler can be a shock to the modern ear, as it underscores his ability to write a balanced appraisal of his subject while expressing his earnest desire to avoid the war that he would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years later. There is a reason this book is still in print today. It was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding."

And naturally, in the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill necessarily reveals some of his own character and perspective. This first revised edition, published in 1938 soon after the first edition of 1937, added four new essays (Fisher, Parnell, Baden-Powell, and - of great interest - Roosevelt). While some of the people about whom Churchill wrote have receded into history, many remain well-known and all remain compellingly drawn. This is as fascinating a read today as when first published. As is the case with the first edition, first printing, the dust jacket for the 1938 revised edition is quite scarce. This British first revised edition, first printing, is a very good plus copy in dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is tight, bright, and clean apart from a touch of sunning to the lower spine where a closed tear previously exposed part of the spine. The contents remain notably bright and clean. Differential toning to the endpapers corresponds to the dust jacket flaps and confirms what the superior binding already tells us - that this copy has spent its life jacketed. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is confined to the dust-soiled top edge, while the fore and bottom edges remain bright and clean. The dust jacket is unclipped, but considerably worn, with a large triangular loss at the spine head to a maximum depth of 1.5 inch and other minor chipping to extremities, as well as wrinkling to the upper front face and a 1.5 inch closed tear at the lower rear hinge. Nonetheless, a rare and desirable dust jacket, priced in accordance with its faults. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
