4 ALSOP, Susan Mary TREE, Marietta To Marietta from Paris 1945-1960. First British Edition in dustjacket
Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London, 1976, ISBN:0297770942 
ALSOP, Susan Mary. To Marietta from Paris 1945-1960. London : Weidenfeld and Nicolson, (1976). First British Edition. Pp (8),ix-xi,(3),1-370,+ 8 pp plates. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Their friendship began when, as teen-aged girls, they engaged in spirited political discussions over peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches one Maine summer; it went on to span decades and continents. As the wife of an American attache to the United States Embassy in Paris, Susan Mary Alsop kept up an intimate, witty, andextremely candid correspondence with her childhood friend Marietta Tree. T his remarkable epistolary journal records her impressions of the exciting years she spent as an observer from a very privileged vantage point, as a ravaged Europe emerged from World War II. Here she describes everything from her conversations with Winston Churchill (He has decided I am...French...and nothing will deter him from speaking French to me) and visits to the stately homes of England (Lunching with the Duke of Marlborough is a mixed pleasure. His palace and his park are superb...but he is an arrogant, odious host who thinks he is a lady-killer) to the sound advice she received on the secrets of entertaining from "the only really glamorous woman in the world," Lady Diana Cooper (Oh just give..plenty of booze and hope it will go.) Whether Mrs. Alsop is confiding delicious pieces of gossip about the people who shaped an age--the Windsors, Harold Nicolson and Vita Sackville-West, the Mitford sisters, Rothschilds, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ho Chi Minh, Elizabeth and Margaret Cocteau, Camus and Sartre, Dior and Balmain--or giving serious assessments in her reporting of events that once again brought the world perilously close to war--the Berlin blockade, French Indo-China, Suez, and Hungary--what emerges from her letters is a spontaneous, totally unaffected, and living social history. All these stories will be in the history books, Mrs. Alsop wrote her friend, but it does send a chill down one's spine to hear them told by the actors in the drama." (from the dj). Penned name, else very good in nicked and torn, but unclipped, dustjacket. 40.00

Yale University Press, New Haven and London, 1988, ISBN:0300039611 
(BALDWIN, Stanley). BELL, Stuart. Baldwin and the Conservative Party : The Crisis of 1929-1931. New Haven and London : Yale University Press, 1988. First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xix,(1),1-266,(2). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The Conservative Party was the dominant political force in Britain between the two world wars. This book examines one of the most serious crises in its history. Whilst in opposition during the second Labour government (1929-1931) accumulated tensions within the Conservative Party erupted into the open. Defeat at the polls, disputes over key areas of domestic and imperial policy and growing anxieties about the weakness of the leader of the Party, Stanley Baldwin, combined to produce an explosive situation. At the same time Beaverbrook and Rothermere, the leading press barons, mounted their 'Empire Crusade' -- a public campaign to force the Party to change both policy and leader. The book is based on a wide range of primary sources -- including the private papers of the party leadership and backbench MPs and all traceable surviving records of the local constituency organisations -- permitting an analysis of a fullness and complexity not previously possible. Dr Ball provides a fresh explanation of the crisis and of the character and strategy of Stanley Baldwin, the most important politician ofthe interwar years. He sheds new light on the rise of Neville Chamberlain and the departure of Winston Churchill into the political wilderness. Two further themes are the role of the press and impact of the slump on British politics. Finally Dr Ball reassesses the controversial role of the Conservatives in the most important political event between the wars -- the collapse of the Labour ministry and the formation of the National Government in August 1931. This new analysis of a crisis which contributed to the reconstruction of modern British political life represents essential reading for historians of politics and of the press, and for political scientists." - fromthe dustjacket.

"'Churchill and Sea Power' is the first major study of Winston Churchill's record as a naval strategist and his impact as the most prominent guardian of Britain's sea power in the modern era.

It shows that many common criticisms of Churchill have also been exaggerated, but also that some of his mistakes have been largely overlooked, such as his willingness to prolong the Battle of the Atlantic in order to concentrate resources on the bombing campaign against Nazi Germany." -from the dustjacket.
