Savrola. A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania. - Sir Winston Spencer Churchill

1900 - Longmans, London - First English Edition
A clean, crisp copy in a beautiful recent leather binding.

Written when Churchill was 23 and first appearing in serial form in ‘
Macmillan's Magazine’, Savrola was Churchill's only novel. It embodies his early personal philosophy on life, which was to govern his later military and political career.

‘For those who know of his later exploits, it provides an amazing foreshadowing of events in his own life. Though the plot is sometimes clumsy, there are flashes of poignancy in his prose that are deeply insightful for a man of his age.’

A History of the English-Speaking Peoples - Sir Winston Spencer Churchill

1956 - Cassell and Company Ltd, London - First Editions
‘The flash and dash of Churchill's zest will render these four volumes readable, humane, exhilarating, memorable and exemplary, few historians, moreover, have been gifted with a style of equal subtlety and vigour, a style at once classical and romantic, precise and imaginative, tolerant yet gently ironical, deeply sensitive to the tragedy of human failure and scornful only of those who are faithless to the virtue within them. These four volumes leave us with enhanced admiration for human character, and an added compassion for human fallibility. They are the legacy of a man of superhuman energy, great intellectual powers and utmost simplicity of soul.’ - Harold Nicolson, New York Times Book Review, 1958.

A finely bound four volume set published shortly after Sir Winston Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. This is the author's last great work, only available some twenty years after he wrote the first draft, which then lay dormant whilst he attended to National and Parliamentary matters.

The World Crisis - 1911-14; 1915; 1916-18; The Aftermath; The Eastern Front. - Sir Winston Spencer Churchill

1923 - 1931 - Thornton Butterworth Limited, London - First Editions
As first lord of the admiralty and minister for war and air, Winston Churchill stood resolute at the centre of international affairs.

In this smartly bound six volume first edition set of his classic account, Churchill dramatically details how the tides of despair and triumph flowed and ebbed as the political and military leaders of the time navigated the dangerous currents of world conflict. Illustrated throughout with black and white plates and folding maps.

This comprehensive account of the Great War is both analytical, and on occasions a justification from the author for his part in the proceedings. It is claimed that Churchill considered the work "
not history, but a contribution to history". Since its publication both biographers and historians have considered it Churchill's masterpiece, eclipsing his better-known account 'The Second World War'. Indeed, T. E. Lawrence regarded the second volume, '1915', as "far and away the best war-book I've yet read".

1948 to 1961 - Cassell and Company Ltd., London - First Editions
With no later editions printed, and wrapped in delicate black dust jackets, prone to damage, this is a scarce complete set of the five volume first editions, without price-clipping and in exceptionally clean dust jackets, including Stemming The Tide in the first state dust jacket. Housed in a custom made slipcase.

After leading Britain to victory against the forces of Hitler, Churchill continued his involvement in public life-holding the positions of Prime Minister and Minister of Defence from 1951 until 1955. During this time, and after his departure from political life, Churchill retained a marked amount of influence on the global stage.

Although he remained in power after the war, this time was bittersweet for Churchill-who was acutely aware of the decline of the British Empire's global power. Churchill's speeches during that time give a poignant account of his state of mind and observations in the twilight of his career.
