We love this first English edition presentation set of Churchill’s A History of the English-Speaking Peoples signed and inscribed to one of his postwar secretaries, Gillian Maturin.
This gorgeous set is in very good condition with all 4 volumes in their bright dust jackets. Search for item 207454 on our website to see more details.

We still have copies of Giles Milton's Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare that the author was kind enough to sign while he was here. Bringing to life an exhilarating and fascinating part of WWII history that is almost entirely overlooked, we certainly recommend this title.

This first English edition presentation set of Churchill's The War Speeches was inscribed and signed to Churchill's personal secretary Jill Maturin. An uncommon and lovely set that we were very pleased to get.

This cartoon from Punch Magazine was published 105 years ago yesterday. The caption reads:
