A very good plus jacketed set of the four-volume first Spanish edition. This edition is incredibly scarce and difficult to find. In writing his seminal 'A Connoisseur's Guide to the Books of Sir Winston Churchill' Richard Langworth was unable even to confirm the existence of the set. In twenty years of collecting Churchill's books, and specialising in the translated editions, this is the only copy I have ever encountered. The green cloth bindings are clean and bright with strong gilt lettering and decoration to the spines and front boards. Everything is square and tight, with sharp unbumped edges and corners. Inside the contents are clean and bright, although there are oval library ink stamps to the title and next following pages. Otherwise there are no ownership inscriptions or any other markings of any kind. Heavily illustrated throughout, including colour plates. The dust jackets are unclipped (no flap price), and show only moderate wear and rubbing, with minor losses - mainly to the spine tops - and a small scuffed strip to the spine bottoms where a label seems to have been removed. They are otherwise fully intact and are now protected in removable mylar covers. Please note that this set is unabridged and contains the entirety of Churchill's original masterpiece. Each volume is divided into three "books." Volume I, The Birth of Britain, takes us from the primitive tribes who formed the "Island Race" to the development of the nation through the Feudal Age, ending with the reign of Richard III. Volume II , The New World, spans the period from the consolidation of the Tudor dynasty in 1485 to the "great and glorious" Revolution of 1688, the emergence of England as a great power, and the establishment in North America of "lively and assertive communities" of English-speaking peoples. Volume III, The Age of Revolution, was perhaps Churchill's favourite, covering as it does the 1668-1815 period: from William III through the age of Marlborough and Queen Anne and the American war of Independence, to Trafalgar, Waterloo and the defeat of Napoleon. Our author reminds us that this critical period produced three revolutions which "profoundly influenced mankind. They occurred within the space of a hundred years, and all of them led to war between the English and the French." Volume IV, The Great Democracies, is more detailed, covering only eighty-five years of 19th century history: recovery after the Treaty of Vienna, the mid-century reforms, the development of the United States, Victorian Britain, the modern Empire. There it stops". (Richard Langworth in 'A Connoisseur's Guide to the Books of Sir Winston Churchill'). All this in Spanish, of course. Please note that this is a heavy set and may incur additional shipping costs. N° de ref. de la librería
