War Memoirs of David Lloyd George [1st Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor, OM, PC]

New York: Little, Brown and Company, 1933, 1934,1936, 1937. Hardcover. A Very Good + set of David Lloyd George's Memoir of the first World War. Active in British Politics, in 1890 he narrowly won a by-election to become the Member of Parliament for Caernarvon Boroughs. He held that seat for fifty-five years, served in Henry Campbell-Bannerman's cabinet, served as Chancellor of the Exchequer, and helped to establish the modern welfare state. In 1915, he served as Minister of Munitions under a Liberal-led wartime coalition and there rapidly expanded production, and, in 1916, he was appointed Secretary of State for War, a post he held only for a short while. When Asquith resigned his post in early December 1916, David Lloyd George became Prime Minister, a post he held through October 19, 1922. In 1940,he declined an offer to serve in Winston Churchill's War Cabinet and was raised to the peerage in 1945. He was, of course, just the man to write about the War. This Memoir is given in six Volumes issued sequentially over several years. The First Volume [1914-1915] is the first edition, second printing (issued in the month following the first printing), the Second Volume [1915-1916] is the first edition second printing (issued in the same month as was the first printing), the Third Volume [1916-1917 America Enters the World War] is the first edition, first printing, the fourth Volume IV [1917 Tragic Failures of 1917] is the first edition, first printing, the fifth Volume [1917-1918 Call for American Troops] is the first edition, first printing [Note: the dust jacket's rear flap extension which includes an order form for the volumes remains present and fully attached.], and the sixth Volume [1918 Final Months of the War] is the first edition, first printing. Each Volume is in Very Good + to Fine condition (with a bit of corner bumping to some of the Volumes), and the dust jackets for the first five volumes are in Very Good + condition with some slight sunning to some spines and a few tears and nicks, and the dust jacket for the sixth volume is in Very Good condition with some chips and tears as well as some marking to the front panel.
