CHURCHILL, Winston S. The Collected Works of Sir Winston Churchill, Centenary Limited Edition . Ed. Frederick Woods. London: Library of Imperial History, 1973. 34 volumes, 4 o. Original vellum, printed on archival quality paper, gilt spine and upper covers, all edges gilt, each volume in dark green slipcases stamped with the Churchill arms (some slight buckling and discoloration to vellum, some slipcases adhering). LIMITED EDITION. While 3,000 copies were intended by the publisher (a firm evidently organized solely for the purpose of issuing this edition), only about 2,000 were issued in vellum, with other sets later issued in red morocco. The set consists of: My Early Life; The Story of the Makland Field Force; The River War (abridged); The Boer War; Savrola, A Political Romance; Lord Randolph Churchill; Mr. Brodrick's Army and Other Early Speeches; The World Crisis (5 vols); Marlborough, His Life and Times (2 vols); Great Contemporaries; Arms and the Covenant; Step By Step; War Speeches (3 vols); The Second World War (6 vols); Postwar Speeches (3 vols); A History of the English Speaking Peoples (4 vols). Created to mark the centenary of Churchill's birth, the proceeds from the initial sales benefited the Churchill Centenary Trust, Churchill College Cambridge, and the Winston Churchill Foundation in the United States. [ With :] CHURCHILL. The Collected Essays of Sir Winston Churchill, Centenary Limited Edition . Ed. Frederick Woods. London: Library of Imperial History, 1976. 4 volumes, 4 o. Original vellum, gilt spine and upper covers, all edges gilt, each volume in dark green slipcases stamped with the Churchill arms. When the 34-volume Centenary Edition appeared, some critics charged that it was not truly a "Collected Works" since so many of Churchill's essays were not included. The editors remedied the defect with these four supplementary volumes: Churchill and War; Churchill and Politics; Churchill and People; and Churchill at Large , "a true addition to the Churchill Canon" (Langworth, A Connoisseur's Guide , 364). Collected Works : Langworth ICSAA1; Collected Essays :, Cohen A286, Langworth ICSA146. (38)
