Descripción Ransohoffs (printed by Grabhorn Press), 1940. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Near Fine. 1st Edition. This is a collector-worthy copy of an unusual, scarce, and striking wartime edition of Churchill's speeches. It contains seven of Churchill's speeches from 1940, including "Blood Toil Tears and Sweat" and "The Few". This is the first appearance in volume form of these speeches, later published in "Into Battle". Included are Churchill's speeches to the House of Commons of 13 May (excerpts), 19 May, 18 June, 20 August, 11 September, and 8 October. Also included is Churchill's speech of 21 October to the French nation. This edition was published for Ransohoff's, a San Francisco department store, by Grabhorn Press in a limited edition of 250 copies. It is a large and striking production, measuring 15.75 x 10.75 inches, bound in red cloth covered boards with a quarter linen spine and a leather spine label stamped in gilt. The contents are printed on lavish, handmade paper and printed in red and black. Two similar editions were published by Ransohoff's - the edition offered here and another in blue cloth containing six of Churchill's speeches from 1940-1941. Both are quite scarce, but this earlier red edition is even more elusive than the blue. While these publications are beautiful, they are notably fragile. The linen spines soiled easily, the leather spine labels faded and cracked, the cloth was prone to wear, and the contents prone to spotting. Finally, as noted in Langworth, (p.243), because of the way these were bound, "these books almost always have one or two gutterbreaks". Here is a lovely copy, free of most of the typical faults. The binding is remarkably clean, the linen almost immaculate and the leather spine label pristine. The boards show light wear to the corners, which nonetheless remain sharp. The contents are a treat. There is no sign of the gutterbreaks endemic to this edition. Moreover, we find no spotting whatsoever and no previous ownership marks of any kind. A terrific example of this scarce edition.

Descripción The Overbrook Press, Stamford Connecticut, 1943. Hardcover. Limited Edition, signed. This is the scarce limited edition of Churchill's 19 May 1943 address to the U.S. Congress, the only copy signed by Churchill we have offered. Churchill's signature in black appears on the first free endpaper. This was Churchill's second address to Congress, seventeen long months of war having passed in the interval since his first, just after Pearl Harbor. Churchill's address came only days after the Allies' total victory in Tunisia. Allied victory in North Africa not only removed Nazi Germany from Africa, but also cleared the way for invasion of Sicily and opened a vital route via North Africa for Stalin to be sent promised supplies - politically important, particularly given the strain placed upon Allied relations by discovery of the Katyn massacre. Churchill departed for the four-day voyage to the United States aboard the Queen Mary on 6 May. From the 11th on, Churchill was with Roosevelt in Washington and at "Shangri-La", the President's Allegheny mountains retreat, discussing and planning the course of the war. Churchill nonetheless took considerable time to prepare this address to Congress. "Churchill spent most of May 18 preparing the speech for the United States Congress. Beginning that morning at 9:30, he dictated until 4:30 in the afternoon. There was then further dictation from midnight until 2:30 in the morning: a total of nine and a half hours dictation." (Gilbert, Volume VII, pages 408-409) Churchill's task was to continue to reinforce common cause, unified strategy, and mutual resolve. "I do not intend to be responsible for any suggestion that the war is won or will soon be over." Churchill cautioned, invoking, for his American audience, the prolonged outcome of the U.S. Civil War. "No one after Gettysburg doubted which way the dread balance of war would incline. Yet far more blood was shed after the Union victory at Gettysburg than in all the fighting which went before." Churchill concluded: "By singleness of purpose, by steadfastness of conduct, by tenacity and endurance, such as we have so far displayed, by these, and only by these, can we discharge our duty to the future of the world and to the destiny of man." This edition was limited to 600 copies specifically for members of Congress, published in September 1943, and is the first volume appearance of this speech. This edition is both more scarce and more elaborate than the publisher's limited edition of Churchill's first address to Congress. The binding is black paper covered boards with a red, gilt-stamped label inset on the front cover. The binding measures 10.5 x 7.5 inches. The contents are printed in red and black on thick stock. The two-page Colophon Note includes excerpts from Churchill's 8 June 1943 address to the House of Commons upon his return from Washington. This signed copy is in good condition overall, sound with some cosmetic wear and blemishes. The fragile black paper covered boards remain firmly attached with unbumped corners and the red front cover label is fully intact. The boards show some modest overall scuffing with a 1.5 inch split to the lower hinge, slight blistering of the paper at the lower left front cover, and a small amount of a waxy blue substance adhering to the bottom margin of the red label and the black paper directly below. The contents remain bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks apart from the author's signature. Churchill's signature is distinct and clearly legible, with only minor age-toning. The blank endsheets show light soiling and we find a tiny moisture stain at the upper blank margin, as well as a creased upper corner at the final free endpaper. Protecting the slim volume is a custom clamshell case in full black morocco (no cloth surfaces either internally or externally) with raised spine bands, marbled paper interior lining, and the date "1943" in gilt on the lower spine.
