Winston S. Churchill

[”The Few”]. A Speech by the Prime Minister the Right Honourable Winston Churchill in the House of Commons, August 20th, 1940. London: His Majesty’s Stationery Office, 1940


16-page stapled pamphlet (9 7/8 x 6 in.; 250 x 152 mm). Slight rust stain at gutter where stapled. Printed card wraps; faintly faded, light creasing.


“NEVER IN THE FIELD OF HUMAN CONFLICT WAS SO MUCH OWED BY SO MANY TO SO FEW.”


Churchill’s iconic speech celebrating victory in the “Battle of Britain” has become scarce in this virtually contemporaneous 1940 printing by His Majesty’s Stationery Office.

A HANDSOME EXAMPLE
