Signed directly to the title page by Charles Mozley.
"This remarkable book is designed to be an artist's tribute to a great man who himself enjoyed painting and enjoyed a high reputation in that field. It is a book of sketches, offering a personal view of the scene on the 30th January 1965, as the Funeral Procession of Winston Churchill made its way from Westminster to St Paul's, and from there to the Tower of London, where the coffin was lifted onto the launch Havengore for its journey down the Thames. Charles Mozley has caught in bold strokes and vivid colours over thirty different aspects of the funeral—the mounted drums, the family mourners, the arrival at the steps of St Paul's... The work on the book began on the Saturday morning of the funeral, and nearly all the sketches were ready by the following Monday."
The book is in very good condition with clean pages and secure binding. The dustwrapper is rather chipped to the edges and folds, with a few small marks and closed tears to the edges but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
