Descripción The International Magazine Company, New York, 1926. Paperback. Estado de conservación: Very good. 1st Edition. The article is published in Cosmopolitan, Vol. LXXXI, No.6, p.15 contains part of the story of Churchill's captivity by the Boers, which would later be told more fully in My Early Life (published 1930), Chapter XX, "In Durance Vile". Specifically, the story told is of an aborted plan of escape for Churchill and his fellow British officers. The scheme of the junior officers was prudently quashed by the senior British officers - and Churchill admits "I shall certainly not claim that they were wrong." The full page article features an image of Churchill in the uniform of the South African Light Horse. Churchill would ultimately, of course, escape alone - a daring feat that helped launch his fame and political career. This original magazine publication is in very good condition. The covers are clean, bright, and firmly attached with no tears or losses. The spine remains fully intact, with just slight wear at the ends. The contents are clean and bright with no markings, spotting, or toning. Bibliographic reference: Cohen C309a, Woods C126. Nº de ref. de la librería 001410

Descripción Levenger Press, Delray Beach, Florida, 2005. Hardcover. Here is the beautiful Levenger Press edition, as-new in the original publisher's box. The Dream is Churchill's revealing essay about a ghostly reunion with his father, Lord Randolph Churchill, in which Winston recounts the world events that have transpired since his father's death - without revealing his own role in them. Winston Churchill's father, Lord Randolph, died in January 1895 at age 45 following the spectacular collapse of both his health and political career. His son Winston was 20 years old. A few years later, Churchill would seek permission to write his father's biography and then spend two and a half years researching and writing - a major literary effort, but apparently an emotional one as well. Of the work, Churchill wrote to Lord Rosebery on 11 September 1902 "It is all most interesting to me - and melancholy too" (R. Churchill, WSC, Companion Volume II, Part 1, p.438). Of course history and longevity would dramatically favor the son, but when Randolph died, Winston dwelt very much in his father's shadow, both emotionally and in terms of the political career to which he already aspired. It is in this small, intimate piece of writing that we catch Churchill with that shadow on the eve of his 73rd birthday. According to Churchill, a "foggy afternoon in November 1947" found him in his "studio at the cottage down the hill at Chartwell" attempting to paint a copy of a damaged portrait of Lord Randolph when he turned around to find his father sitting in a red leather armchair, looking just as Churchill "had seen him in his prime." What ensued was a conversation about what had - and had not - changed since Randolph's time, ranging from trivialities and individual personalities to politics and the broad sweep of world affairs. Churchill, of course, never reveals his role in much of this history. Churchill's summary observations and appraisals to his father make a worthwhile study in themselves. But these are perhaps overshadowed by the emotional overtones which psychologists and sentimentalists will doubtless continue to parse for years to come. His family called it "The Dream." Churchill titled it simply "Private Article." Though he was seldom stinting with his words or their publication, Churchill locked the essay in a box where it remained, willed to his wife. Churchill died on 24 January 1965 - the same day his father died seventy years before. The Dream was first published a year after Churchill's death, on 30 January 1966, in the Sunday Telegraph. This extremely attractive edition was produced by Levenger Press in 2005. It is bound in blue-gray leather stamped in silver. The cover bears a drawing by Churchill's daughter. It is an oversize book, measuring 8.75 x 8.75 inches. In addition to the original text it contains a facsimile reproduction of a 2-page letter from a young Winston Churchill to his father, an Introduction by Richard M. Langworth, and an Afterword by Churchill's namesake grandson, Winston S. Churchill. It was originally issued by Levenger Press in a silver box with an integral silver-gray closure strap. This copy is in as-new condition, in the original publisher's silver box, with the publisher's original tissue paper within. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A288.4. Nº de ref. de la librería 003436

Descripción Levenger Press, 2005. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: As New. No Jacket. Special Edition. A lovely as-new copy of the Levenger edition of 2005. Medium blue leather binding with immaculate silver lettering to the spine and front board, and a small copy of a Sarah Churchill drawing of her father tipped to the front board. Everything is square and tight, with sharp unbumped edges and corners. The contents are clean and bright with no ownership inscriptions or other markings of any kind. No dust jacket, as issued. This is a very special copy as it has been boldly signed by Winston S. Churchill (grandson) on the half-title. The end-papers reproduce a childhood letter from Churchill to his father. Introduction by Richard M. Langworth and Afterword by Winston S. Churchill (grandson). "In The Dream Lord Randolph appears in Winston’s studio as he is attempting to copy a damaged portrait of his father. During their stilted conversation Winston recounts his father’s parliamentary speech in 1884. Lord Randolph comments on Winston’s photographic memory, ‘You recited the twelve hundred lines of Macaulay without a single mistake’. His voice and facial features were utterly expressionless, but it was probably the nearest to a complement Winston could ever have hoped for from his father. Winston knew only too well that his father’s disappointment, anger and loathing towards him was deeply embedded; his father had actually thought him to be retarded and incapable of achieving anything substantial in his life. Had Lord Randolph lived a little longer he would have undoubtedly seen how wrong he had been". Nº de ref. de la librería NT001636
