Wrapper (now protected in a removable clear acetate sleeve) has edge wear and some closed tears and internal archival tape reinforcement. Book has light shelf wear. Scarce. 496pp including index Sir Henry Chips Channon (1897 1958) was an American-born British Conservative politician, author and diarist. He moved to England in 1920 and became strongly anti-American, feeling that American cultural and economic views threatened traditional European and British civilisation. He wrote extensively about these views. Channon quickly became enamoured of London society and became a social and political climber, and was first elected as a Member of Parliament (MP) in 1935. In his political career he failed to achieve ministerial office and was unsuccessful in his pursuit of a peerage, but he is remembered as one of the most famous political and social diarists of the twentieth century. His diaries have so far been published only in an expurgated edition. 742104

And heedless quite of the howling storm,
My books and I are alone together.
