Great Britain: George Philip & Son Ltd in Association with “Time and Tide”, 1956. First Edition, First Printing. Folded thick paper map in Slipcase. A Very Good or better copy of this remarkable map issued to World Books members to commemorate the completion of publication of the Reprint Society Edition of the Churchill War Memoirs. A very large colour map printed on heavy folding stock, beautifully decorated and featuring views of warships and aircraft and with a bright and beautifully coloured legend explaining the journeys with fine text in an engraved style -- showing one tear from the top edge (prevented from growing by some small bits of archival tape to the blank verso). This large multi-folding coloured map is preserved in the publisher’s pictorially decorated and as-issued, unsophisticated slipcase -- the best example of the slipcase that we ever have seen. The impressive map is roughly 44 inches wide by 36 inches tall. A handsome copy of the hard to find and impressive map, the colours bright and fresh, the paper slipcase is mellowed as is typical and has some minor wear or cracking, and some tide marking, but printed image on front cover still quite visible. This map provides a SCARCE VISUAL RECORD OF CHURCHILL’S HISTORIC WORLD WAR II JOURNEYS, travels he took as the Prime Minister in defense of Britain during the period of 1940-1945. Presented in full color are his journeys to numerous political conferences from New York to Moscow, beginning with the “Atlantic Charter” of 1941, which was the product of his meeting at sea with Roosevelt that established the general desire on both sides for a democratic, progressive postwar world. After a number of intercontinental circuits the map brings his journeys to an end at the Potsdam Conference of 1945, the historic meeting of the “Big Three,” the U.S., Britain, and Russia, to negotiate postwar treatment of Germany in terms of their demilitarization, requirement of reparations, etc. The map shows Churchill’s journey from Bordeaux to Berlin and then ultimately back to England. In addition, it also illustrates Churchill’s 1944 tours of the beaches of Normandy and the invasion coasts of Italy and Southern France. Featured at the bottom are detailed color illustrations of his traveling crafts, including the ships “King George V” and “Queen Mary” and the remarkable B.O.A.C. Flying Boat “Berwick.” This map is becoming increasingly scarce and is a visually stunning summation of the extensive efforts of Churchill to help Britain prevail during this monumental war and ultimately bring them to victory. REMARKABLY SCARCE TO THE MARKET, ESPECIALLY IN THE ORIGINAL SLIPCASE AND EVEN MORE SO IN AN EXAMPLE OF THE SLIPCASE AS NICE AS IS THIS ONE. Very good +. Item #3232
