Winston S. Churchill bust

GREAT CONTEMPORARIES [1937]

(Cohen A105) (Woods A43)
Penetrating profiles of twenty-one political and literary luminaries. An utter delight to read; beautifully written, brutally opinionated (Hitler comes off just a bit better than George Bernard Shaw). The ensuing "Revised" edition (and most future reprints) added four new profiles: Lord Fisher, Charles Stewart Parnell, Lord Baden-Powell and President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
