    Winston Churchill Signed The Second World War "To- Frederick: from Winston Churchill" to his chauffeur on the title page of Volume II. This elegant two-volume set was abridged by LIFE magazine's editors from Churchill's six-volume magnum opus of the same name, which had been excerpted in LIFE between the years 1948 and 1953. Each coffee-table book in the pair is beautifully gold-embossed on the front cover and spine, with colorful interior illustrations, detailed maps, and black-and-white photos. Published in 1959, the books measure 10.5" x 14", grade in very fine condition, and come with the original black slipcase that has dutifully protected them for nearly a half-century.
