Houhgton Mifflin, Octavo. Cloth. About Fine / Very Good - ; 1948 to 1953.
Churchill's brilliant history of the Second World War; book club editions, issued simultaneously with the regular issue and using the publisher’s original plates. These printings are distinguishable from the HM printing, inter alia, by the absence of top-edge red staining and headbands. Maps, diagrams and index in each. All are in dustwrappers, and are now in protective mylar sleeves; they vary in condition, with one noticeable spine chip; others dusty or with gentle signs of use. There are no previous owner names or other markings, and all bindings are tight and sound. Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1953. Anticipated at the time of publication of The Gathering Storm to be a work of five volumes, the final collection of six drew not only upon Churchill's eloquence but also his first-hand experiences and his significant collection of personal memoranda from the war years. On the situation in the days following D-Day, he wrote: "Beyond the battlefield other events influenced the future. On the night of June 12-13 the first flying bombs fell in London. They were launched in Northern France from places remote from our landed armies. Their early conquest would bring relief to our civil population, once again under bombardment." {Vol. 6, p. 19).
