SIGNED, dated and inscribed, " Inscribed for _____, by the author Mary Soames, Edmonton, September 1979", to the title page. Like new, appears unread and not remaindered. Interior is crisp, clean and solid. Bright gilt titles to spine. Corners are sharp and square. Couple of very small stains to front edge. Clipped dustjacket has numerous small tears to the top edge, rubbed and bumped to extremities. Now protected in brodart jacket. Written by the daughter of Winston and Clementine Churchill. Clementine was married to Winston for 57 years through some of the most turbulent periods of English history. Easily one of the most influential men of the 20th century, this extraordinary woman was clearly one of the reasons why.
