Winston Churchill Signed Six-Volume Book Set

Complete book set: The Second World War, Volumes 1–6. London: Cassell and Co. Ltd., 1948–1954. Hardcovers with dust jackets, 6 x 8.5. Beautifully signed on the half-title page of the fifth volume in fountain pen, “Winston S. Churchill.” Each volume is housed in a custom gilt-stamped clamshell box. Autographic condition: fine. Book condition: signed volume, VG-/VG-; unsigned volumes, VG/VG-. As Britain’s prime minister for most of the Second World War, Winston Churchill had an unparalleled perspective on the conflict. After leaving office in 1945, he produced this remarkable account, which holds a very high place in the ranks of nonfiction books of the 20th century. The comprehensive series was a major success in both Great Britain and the United States, and was largely responsible for his being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953.

RR Autograph Auction Winston Churchill original sketch by an 18 year old Churchill

RR Autograph Auction Winston Churchill

Superb original vintage signed ink sketch of an exhausted boxer sitting in his corner, being rubbed down by one trainer and fanned with a large towel by another, titled “The Losing Side,” on an off-white 9 x 7 sheet, signed under the image, “Winston S. Churchill—/92.” Sheet is affixed to a 10.75 x 8.25 mount. In fine condition, with a uniform shade of toning over image from previous display, and toning, soiling, and adhesive remnants to mount. Apparently the young Churchill gave this picture to the owners of a sweet shop close to Harrow School, and it remained in their family until its sale. This appears to be the earliest-known artwork by Churchill, with it’s title decidedly ironic in light of the man’s future achievements. Provenance: Christies.
