Descripción The Churchilliana Company, Sacramento, California, 1977. Hardcover. First U.S. edition. In 1903 Winston Churchill was a brash new member of Parliament. The Secretary of State for War, John Brodrick, had introduced a plan for expanding the peacetime Army. Brodrick was a fellow Conservative and Cabinet member. Churchill had been an Army officer and had participated in four wars on three continents before election to Parliament in 1900. Nonetheless, Churchill vehemently assaulted Brodrick's plan. Fascinatingly, this was the same fight upon which Churchill's father, Lord Randolph Churchill, had gambled and lost his own political career in 1886. Unlike his father, Churchill ultimately prevailed; Brodrick was left politically isolated and removed from the War Office to become Secretary of State for India. Churchill's opposition included six major speeches on the subject. These six oratorical assaults were published in 1903 by Arthur L. Humphreys of London in an extravagantly rare wraps edition titled Mr. Brodrick's Army. The political fight over Mr. Brodrick's Army scheme was a personal and political watershed for Churchill. It can fairly be said that the young Churchill's brazen and successful opposition to a powerful figure in his own party on this particular issue helped him emerge from the long shadow of his father. Moreover, the fight helped set the stage for Churchill's 1904 defection from the Conservatives to join the Liberal Party. The 1903 first edition of Mr. Brodrick's Army is the scarcest of all Churchill books and commands a towering premium on the rare occasions a copy is offered for sale. The good news is that there is an alternative for both readers and collectors. Here is the first U.S. edition (in the deluxe, collector's binding), issued 74 years after the British first edition. This meticulous facsimile reprint was produced in 1977. The original work of 102 pages in red card wraps is faithfully reproduced and 5 additional pages are added at the front including a preface by Manfred Weidhorn. Offered in two grades of binding, this deluxe binding has a brown buckram spine over tan linen cloth covered boards. The spine and front cover are stamped in gold. The endpapers reproduce Churchill's entry in Who's Who. Condition is very good. The binding is square, bright, and tight with sharp corners. We note only light soiling to the tan linen boards. The contents are bright and clean with no previous ownership marks. A barely discernible hint of spotting is confined to the top edge of the text block.

Descripción The Churchillliana Co., 1977. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Fine. No Jacket. A fine fresh copy of the Churchilliana facsimile edition of 1977. This is technically the first US edition. The binding of coarse brown cloth spine over cream cloth boards is clean and unworn. 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. End-papers reproduced from Who's Who. In early 1901, in the aftermath of the Boer War, the Secretary of State for War, St. John Brodrick, was pursuing Army reform and increased Army expenditure. Churchill fiercely opposed both of these measures, and on May 13th he delivered his first major set piece speech in the House of Commons, in the course of which he publicly assumed his inheritance of the cause for which his father had committed political suicide in 1886. After quoting his father at length Churchill then continued. "Wise words, Sir, stand the test of time, and I am very glad the House has allowed me, after an interval of fifteen years, to lift again the tattered flag of retrenchment and economy". Churchill's view prevailed, and in 1903 he published what was to be the first of his political works - a slim volume of six speeches entitled Mr. Brodrick's Army. It was the first of eighteen volumes of speeches that he would publish in the course of his life. The work was almost entirely unavailable until 1977 when Dalton Newfield and The Churchilliana Company issued a facsimile edition, encased in hard covers and including a new preface by Manfred Weidhorn. This is a lovely copy of that edition. Nº de ref. de la librería NT001464

Descripción Liberal Publication Department, 1904. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 1st Edition. This Bound volume contains Liberal Leaflet No. 1923 entitled "Tory M.P.s on Mr. Brodrick's Army Corps Scheme. The pamphlet is 4 pages in length and contains two excerpts from Churchill's House of Commons Speech of 24 February 1903 - the last of his famous six oratorical assaults on Brodrick's plan to expand the Army. In 1903 Winston Churchill was a brash new member of Parliament. Then Secretary of State for War, John Brodrick, had introduced a plan for expanding the peacetime Army. Brodrick was a fellow Conservative and Cabinet member. Churchill had been an Army officer and had partaken in four wars on three continents before election to Parliament in 1900. Nonetheless, Churchill vehemently assaulted Brodrick's plan. Fascinatingly, this was the same fight upon which Churchill's father, Lord Randolph Churchill, had gambled and lost his own political career in 1886. Unlike that of his father, Churchill's opposition ultimately prevailed, with Churchill making six major speeches on the subject in two years. Published here are two separate excerpts from Churchill's House of Commons speech of 24 February 1903, the last of these six speeches. The full text of the address was subsequently collected in Winston S. Churchill His Complete Speeches under the title "Army Organization" in Volume I, pp. 164-175 (the Churchill excerpts appearing on pp. 167 and 173). The only other publication is in Mr. Brodrick's Army, under the title "Promise and Performance" with an erroneous date of 23 February. Of great interest, these are the only three known published appearances of this speech and the extract that appears here differs significantly in phraseology among all three publications. The fact that these speech excerpts - by a Conservative M.P. attacking the plan of a Conservative Cabinet member - are published by the Publications Department of the Liberal Party presages the momentous impending change in Churchill's political alignment. In 1904 Churchill would leave the Conservative Party of his father to join the Liberals. He would not return to the Tories until 1924. The bound volume offered here is itself a fascinating piece of history, containing a total of 20 pamphlets and 62 leaflets, many of which are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. The volume is bound in black pebble grain leather spine over ribbed green buckram covers - the more commonly seen binding variant for Liberal Publications volumes of this era. The book measures 8 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets, as well as an Index of Subjects. Condition is very good. The black leather spine remains supple, retains bright gilt, and shows virtually no wear. The green boards show little wear, but are moisture stained. The contents are truly excellent - crisp, clean, bright, and tight with no inscriptions. The gilt top edge remains bright. Light spotting is confined to the fore edge and bottom edge of the text block. The pamphlet bearing Churchill's speech excerpts is pristine with no wear or flaws. Additional images available upon request. Bibliographic reference: Cohen D1/1, unknown to Woods. Nº de ref. de la librería 000923
