The first and second volumes in William Manchester's planned trilogy of the life of Winston Spencer Churchill (1874-1965). Both volumes with copious photos, maps and extensive index and source notes. These works cover, in exhaustive detail, Mr. Churchill's life until his appointment as Prime Minister after the outbreak of World War II. --- Volumes in grey paper-covered boards backed in blue cloth, with spine titling in gilt. The books are protected in a shared slipcase, which bears the original dust jacket art from the original issuances of these two works. --- With a nasty bump to corner of slipcase which corresponds to a smaller bump to the cover edge of "Alone" and with fingerprints to boards, otherwise a clean, bright, unmarked set. Each volume with publisher's bar code sticker to back panels. Other than the damaged corner, the slipcase is in good shape. (Due to the considerable weight of this item, extra shipping charges may be requested.) ; Tall Octavo (9 to 10 in. tall); xvii, 973, xxvi, 756 pages
