Illustrated with nearly 400 photographs of Churchill. Original red cloth, with pictorial dust jacket. FIRST EDITION. Signed and inscribed on front flyleaf, "Inscribed for Mrs. Kemp by Winston S. Churchill, 25 May 1956." With a loosely inserted autograph note from Churchill's secretary, Lettice Marston, to Katie, 25 May 1956: "Sir Winston thought your book was so nice, & wasn't sure that he'd seen it properly before, so he had it in his room to read it from cover to cover!!" A remarkable photographic retrospective of Churchill's long and active life, with images from his childhood and young manhood as a subaltern in India, to his wartime meetings with Stalin and FDR and postwar career as Prime Minister and elder statesman.
