    Publisher's red buckram lettered in gilt on spine. Light rubbing to extremities, a few corners and spine ends bumped. Volume I with light foxing to endpapers, edges, and first and last few leaves. A very good set. In the original color pictorial dust jackets. Jackets lightly rubbed, with a few small edge chips and tears, and some slight browning and foxing. Jacket of Volume I price-clipped.

    "If a potential buyer of these volumes were to ask one question: Why must they beyond any doubt find a place on my shelves?-it can be answered shortly. There has never been a history like this written by a man who has himself made history; never have the political and diplomatic decisions of the past been considered by a writer who, all his life, has had to make decisions of the same character and of the same magnitude. That alone must make this history unique" (rear flap of Volume I dust jacket).
