This collected edition of Churchill?s war speeches has much to recommend it. There are minor differences in the selection of speeches included from the original 7 wartime volumes, as detailed in Cohen. The production standard is far higher. The books are larger at 6 x 10 inches, bound in heavy navy buckram, completely reset with generous margins, on a better grade of paper. Woods states that only 4740 sets were produced, so this can be a very elusive title. Books have good colour and bright gilt, vol 3 has a stain at base of spine, shown in photos. There are no names or markings and the page edges are even and free of spots. Dustwrappers are correct firsts, unclipped, spines tanned and significant losses at spine ends as shown. (A136a).
