Winston S. Churchill. The Unwritten Alliance. Cassell & Company Ltd., London, 1961.

Price: US$300.00 + shipping

Description: This is a jacketed copy of the fifth and final volume of Churchill's five postwar speech volumes. The Unwritten Alliance includes 70 speeches delivered by Churchill between 30 January 1953 and 31 October 1959. These speeches span the end of Churchill's second and final term as Prime Minister (1951-1955) and the twilight of his long life and public career. The bulk of the speeches - 43 of 70 and 250 of 332 pages - take place during Churchill's premiership. In this final volume of his speeches published during his lifetime, Churchill passes "into a living national memorial" of the time he has lived and the Nation, Empire, and free world he has served. The Unwritten Alliance takes its name specifically from Churchill's 8 June 1954 speech and more generally from the "special relationship" between Britain and the United States, which had endured postwar disagreements. Randolph wrote in his introduction to the volume that the title was "justified by the number of speeches which dwell on the paramount necessity of Anglo-American friendship." There was no U.S. edition for this volume and the British first edition, only printing, was just 5,000 copies. Moreover, dust jackets for The Unwritten Alliance were notoriously poorly printed, and consequently are almost always rubbed or streaked, with orange showing through the black background. Here is a very good plus copy in a very good plus dust jacket. The red-orange cloth binding is bright and tight, entirely unfaded with sharp corners and vivid spine gilt. We note trivial wear to the spine ends and a tiny spot of soiling at the spine head. The contents retain a crisp feel with no previous ownership marks and mild age-toning. Light spotting is confined to the page edges. The dust jacket is strikingly well-preserved for the edition, with none of the typical orange streaking. We note trivial wear to extremities, light soiling to the white rear panel, and a neatly price-clipped lower front flap. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
