Printing Details

First edition. Hardback, bound in the original red cloth with gilt titling to spine. 19 × 12.5cm, 146pp.

An early title from the controversial historian, Arthur Bryant. This book contains six essays by prominent historians and others detailing the importance of men of recent and current history. F J C Hearnshaw writes on King Edward VII, R H Bruce Lockhart on Lenin, R B Mowat on Aristide Briand, Eric J Patterson on Josef Pilsudski, Sir Charles Petrie on Mussolini, and E W D Tennant on Hitler (here with his christian name spelt as Adolph). Tennant had been a banker in the years before the Second World War who had worked towards closer ties between Germany and Britain.


A good copy. There is some darkening and rubbing to the red cloth, light tanning to the prelims but the main body of text is in good order. Old bus ticket kept in as a bookmark, and a pre-war newspaper clipping on the men of the moment loosely inserted.
