Winston S. Churchill. Marlborough: His Life and Times, Volume II. Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1933.

Price: US$100.00 + shipping

Description: This is a jacketed U.S. first edition of the second volume of Churchill's Marlborough: His Life and Times. The British first edition was issued in four volumes. The U.S. publisher chose to split the first two volumes into two books each, resulting in a six volume set that is otherwise identical in content to the British. This U.S. first printing of Volume II is in very good condition in a good plus, uniform issue blue and gold dust jacket. The green cloth binding is square, clean, bright, and tight with bright spine gilt. We note only trivial shelf wear to extremities and small bumps to the upper corners. The contents are clean with no previous ownership marks. The Scribner’s "A" on the copyright page confirms first printing. We find no spotting. The otherwise clean fore and bottom edges show modest age-toning, the top edge light dust soiling. The dust jacket is bright and substantially complete, retaining the original "$2.75" front flap price and showing only fractional chip losses to extremities. Nonetheless, the jacket shows overall scuffing and wear to hinges and extremities, with a few short closed tears (not exceeding 3cm). The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Winston Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, was initially conceived a full 40 years before publication of the fourth and final volume. Churchill originally considered the idea of the biography in 1898, returning to it in earnest in 1928. Marlborough ultimately took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. This decade saw Churchill pass into his sixties with his own future as uncertain as that of his nation. It is perhaps not incidental that Churchill’s great work of the 1930s was about a great ancestor. Churchill may have wondered more than once if the life history he was writing might ultimately eclipse his own. Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." Two months after Volume I was published, on 12 December 1933, T.E. Lawrence wrote to Churchill: "I finished it only yesterday. I wish I had not The skeleton of the book is so good. Its parts balance and the main stream flows Marlborough has the big scene-painting, the informed pictures of men, the sober comment on political method, the humour, irony and understanding of your normal writing: but beyond that it shows more discipline and strength: and great dignity. It is history, solemn and decorative. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.4(II).a, Woods/ICS A49(ba), Langworth p.169.

Price: US$150.00 + shipping

Condition: Near Fine

Description: This is a jacketed U.S. first edition, first printing of the second volume of Winston Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough. Churchill's biography was initially conceived a full 40 years before publication of the fourth and final volume. Churchill originally considered the idea of the biography in 1898, returning to it in earnest in 1928. Marlborough ultimately took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War in 1938. Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." The British first edition was issued in four volumes. The U.S. publisher chose to split the first two volumes into two books each, resulting in a six volume set that is otherwise the same in content as the British. This U.S. first edition, first printing of Volume II is near-fine in a very good, uniform issue blue and gold dust jacket. The green cloth binding is tight, clean, and square with bright spine gilt. The only trivial exterior flaws are tiny bumps to the rear cover corners and the slightest hint of scuffing to the front face. The contents are clean and bright with no spotting or inscriptions. The Scribner's "A" on the copyright page confirms first printing. Even the untrimmed fore edges remain clean. The dust jacket remains bright and unclipped, still bearing the original $2.75 price on the upper front flap. There is trivial wear, mostly at the spine ends and corners, with minor scuffing to the front face. Fractional loss is confined to the spine head and corners. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.4(II).a, Woods/ICS A49(ba), Langworth p.169.

Only in 1938, when the sixth and final U.S. volume was published, were the more commonly seen blue and gold dust jackets issued. Today the first state dust jackets are quite scarce. Here are fine copies of the first two volumes in the original, first state dust jackets. The green cloth bindings are clean, tight, and square with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. The only trivial exterior flaws to report are slight wrinkling at the spine ends. Both volumes have truly fine contents - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks. Both dust jackets show toning and staining to the spines, with chipping at the spine ends. The jacket faces show minor edge chipping.

Price: US$240.00 + shipping

Description: This is a U.S. first edition set of the first two volumes of Churchill’s Marlborough in the first state dust jackets. The British first edition was issued in four volumes. The U.S. publisher chose to split the first two volumes into two books each, resulting in a six volume set that is otherwise identical in content to the British.

Today the first state dust jackets are scarcer than their blue and gold counterparts. Here are fine copies of the first two volumes in nearly very good, first state dust jackets. The green cloth bindings are beautifully clean, tight, and square with bright spine gilt, sharp corners, and virtually no wear. The contents of each volume are bright and clean. No previous ownership marks. No spotting. Even the untrimmed fore edges remain clean and bright. The dust jackets show the customary transfer browning to the Volume II front panel and Volume I rear panel caused by the original cardboard publisher’s slipcase (no longer present), as well as toning to the spines. Fractional loss is confined to the spine heads and the upper edge of the Volume II front panel. We note a 2 cm closed tear to the upper edge of the Volume I front panel as well as scuffing and staining to the spines. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers.

Winston S. Churchill. Marlborough: His Life and Times, Volumes I & II in the first printing, first state dust jackets and publisher's slipcase. Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1933.

Price: US$320.00 + shipping

Description: This is a U.S. first edition set of the first two volumes of Churchill’s Marlborough in the first state dust jackets and publisher’s slipcase. The British first edition was issued in four volumes. The U.S. publisher chose to split the first two volumes into two books each, resulting in a six-volume set that is otherwise identical in content to the British. These first four U.S. volumes were originally issued in two-volume sets, with cream-colored dust jackets featuring green print, each two-volume set housed in an illustrated publisher’s slipcase. Only in 1938, when the sixth and final U.S. volume was published, were the more commonly seen blue and gold dust jackets issued. Today the first state dust jackets are scarcer than their blue and gold counterparts, the original publisher’s slipcases scarcer still. Here are fine copies of the first two volumes in very good minus, first state dust jackets, housed in the publisher’s slipcase. The green cloth bindings are immaculate – square, clean, bright, and tight with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and no appreciable wear. The contents are likewise immaculate, with no previous ownership marks or spotting. The dust jackets are complete apart from minor loss at the spine ends. The jackets show modest overall soiling and a tiny tape reinforcement to a closed tear at the upper edge of the Volume I rear panel. The dust jackets are protected with removable, archival quality clear covers. The scarce illustrated publisher’s slipcase is worn and soiled, but complete, despite splits at the rear panel seams. There is a single piece of cellotape reinforcement at the upper edge of the rear panel.
