Top edges a little faded, as usual; others very lightly spotted. Jackets toned and lightly sunned to spines and edges; better than usual, with the red still showing clearly, some old tape reinforcement to the reverse of the wrappers on the first two volumes. Some light bruising and small closed tears. Very good. 'This is not history; this is my case.' The author's most famous work continuing on from his earlier history of the First World War, 'The World Crisis'. The two together form, in Churchill's opinion, a comprehensive history of a second Thirty Years War. Item #54217
