Obscure Book of the Day: Winston Churchill

Here’s another Pitkin Guide. It chronicles the long and interesting life of Winston Churchill and is titled, “Tribute to Churchill: His life, His passing. His State funeral..” This one’s easy to date since it includes photos from Churchill’s funeral which are said to be “recent,” thereby making the publication date 1965.

Among the usual images of Churchill looking grim amongst other politicians and at the scene of battles, it is also peppered with casual images of a jolly Prime Minister with celebrities, Royalty and, as a young man, with his bride. It’s an interesting look into the life of one of the most famous men in the world.
