Churchill, Randolph S. & Gernsheim, Helmut (Eds.).


New York, 1st ed., 1955. Pages not numbered but substantial; 388 photo-ills. D.j., 28 x 22cm. A little expected wear to d.j., o/w Nr.FINE. Sir Winston Churchill was one of the most photographed men of history and here, almost four hundred photographs tell the biography of his personal and private life. Here are previously unpublished intimate family groups, snapshots from private albums, rare clips from motion-picture prints. We see Churchill as war correspondent and Army officer, as parliamentarian and First Lord of the Admiralty, and we follow him through the span of his glorious wartime prime-ministership to the world-celebrated occasion of his eightieth birthday. We also see him playing polo and horseracing, bricklaying, painting and entertaining friends. Churchill's son, Randolph, has prefaced the photographs of each period of his father's life with a short introduction, linking the photographs by his commentary into a continuous story of absorbing interest.
