Churchill, Winston S. - Great Contemporaries - ( Item 124003 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2015. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Written before he became prime minister, Churchill’s canny and witty insights on the great figures of the day remain entertaining and illuminating. Introduced by Celia Sandys. Featuring newly researched photographs and biographical information, this remains one of Churchill’s most accessible works – it illuminates its subjects and reveals the personality of its author. For this edition we have used the 25 essays Churchill personally selected for the 1938 edition, and Celia Sandys has provided a warm and insightful introduction, describing her grandfather as a man who always thought of himself as a professional writer, regardless of his extraordinary political career. As Lady D'Abernon wrote when she received her copy of Great Contemporaries, Churchill 'was himself far the Greatest Contemporary of them all'. Quarter-bound in buckram with Modigliani paper sides, printed and blocked with a design by Raquel Leis Allion. Set in Garamond with Gill Sans display. 368 pages. Frontispiece and 28 integrated black & white images. 9½" x 6¼".
