Haig by Duff Cooper 1st / 1st 1935-36
London: Faber and Faber Limited (1935-6). A very good first UK edition set with their original and rare dust wrappers. The first volume has a couple of small holes to the top right of the wrapper. Both dust wrappers have some mild fading to the spines. And both are not price clipped. The books are both in nice condition with no foxing marks or other wear. Overall a very good two volume set.
Duff Cooper fought in the Grenadier Guards during the War. He was a family friend of the Haigs, and he was officially invited to write Haig’s biography by Lord Haig’s executors. Because he was close to the Haig family, Duff Cooper had access to sources which were to be unavailable to other historians for many years, including Haig’s diaries.
