Winston S. Churchill. Joan of Arc. Dodd, Mead & Company, New York, 1969.

Price: US$100.00 + shipping

Condition: Very Good

Description: This interesting little book is excerpted from Churchill's A History of the English-Speaking Peoples. On 29 December 1938, Churchill wrote to his wife regarding his initial draft about this part of his history: "I have just finished writing about Joan of Arc. I think she is the winner in the whole of French history. The leading women of these days were more forceful and remarkable than the men." Profusely illustrated, this slim volume contains 17 illustrations by the distinguished artist Lauren Ford. Though 16 of these illustrations had previously been published as black and white drawings, this is their first appearance in color. The illustration on the dust jacket front cover and frontispiece is original to this edition. This little-known edition is scarce and thus missing from many collections. Many of the copies that do come on the market are ex-library with attendant flaws, very often including library stickers or writing on the spine. Here is the first edition, first and only impression, very good condition in the dust jacket. This copy is ex-library with some flaws but in better than average ex-library condition. Exterior presentation is quite good for an ex-library copy. Plusses: The dust jacket is unclipped, clean, and unusually bright with no library stickers or markings. Minus: A roughly 1/8 inch strip has been removed from the entire bottom of the jacket, leaving it just a little short. This was likely done to fit the jacket to an institutional library dust jacket cover. The white boards and spine are clean but for a tape stain on the lower right front corner and some wear at the tail of the spine. Contents are clean and bright. There is a "Buffalo and Erie County Public Library" card pocket on the rear endpaper and a small date stamp "MAR11 1970" to the blank back of page 47. The contents are otherwise unmarked. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A279, Woods/ICS A138(j), Langworth p.334.

On 29 December 1938, Churchill wrote to his wife regarding his initial draft about this part of his history: "I have just finished writing about Joan of Arc.

Many of the copies that do come on the market are ex-library with attendant flaws, very often including library stickers or writing on the spine. This copy is not ex library and in fact has no previous ownership markings of any kind. The dust jacket is bright, and unclipped with the $3.50 price intact. There is light wear at the edges, corners, and hinges and a neat .75 inch closed tear to the upper edge of the rear face. The contents are crisp, clean, bright, and tight with no spotting and no inscriptions. The white boards are unusually bright and clean with square corners. The significant flaw with this book is a .25 wide strip of brown staining next to the hinge on both the front and rear covers that runs the vertical length of the spine. The staining appears to be caused by some previous spotting. The spine itself is only lightly affected. An imperfect but still very good copy. Shown here without a DJ protector to give you a clear view of the dust jacket. Comes with a mylar dust jacket protector. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A279, Woods/ICS A138(j), Langworth p.334

Many of the copies that do come on the market are ex-library with attendant flaws, very often including library stickers or writing on the spine. This copy is ex-library, but in superior condition nonetheless - particularly the dust jacket. The dust jacket is unclipped with the $3.50 price intact. It is also entirely complete with no chips, tears, or losses. No ex-library markings of any kind. The dust jacket is marred only by some scuff marks to the lower half of the spine and a few tiny scuffs to the front face near the edges. The white cloth boards are marred only by light soiling at the edges and some tape residue where the old, library dust jacket protector was evidently taped to the boards. As with the dust jacket, there are no external ex-library markings on the book itself. Internal ex-library markings are confined to a card pocket glued to the ffep, a "Pinellas County Board of Public Instruction" ink stamp on the half title, and a blacked out ink stamp on the final free endpaper. Despite the ex-library status, this is a respectable copy notable for the superior dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

It is not ex-library, but instead near-fine plus in a very good plus dust jacket. The white cloth binding of this edition proved quite susceptible to soiling and signs of use. Here the binding is unusually clean - square and tight with sharp corners, bright gilt, and virtually no wear. A trivial hint of soiling is confined to the top edge of the front cover. The contents are superior - crisp and bright with no previous ownership markings or spotting. The text block edges are likewise bright and clean. The dust jacket is unusually clean and complete, with no losses or tears. Moreover, it is unclipped, still bearing the original $3.50 price on the front flap. Trivial wear at the spine ends, front hinge, and corners and light soiling are the only dust jacket flaws noted. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
