The best-selling six-volume history that helped gain Churchill a Nobel Prize for literature. Published first in the U.S., the ensuing English edition contained numerous corrections and even a few additional maps. It is therefore considered more definitive, though today the American edition may be rarer. The series was simultaneously published by the Book-of-the-Month-Club, printed on the same presses as the first editions, and thus today can easily be confused with them.

Description: A very nice one-volume illustrated edition selected and edited for young readers. This is a very good copy of the First Edition thus, in an unclipped dust jacket that has faded a touch at the spine. The contents are fine.
