Great Pictures

The book The Grand Alliance by Winston Churchill Published by HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, 1950 with Dust Cover signed

Is valued at 600.00-650.00 GBP If you plan on selling. There are some great sites you can sell from.
Etsy is a great site. Ebay is a great option. It does reach a lot of people, but items tend to sell a little lower on there If you do decide to try Ebay, I recommend setting reserves.

Those are the notes by Bomber Harris


That is the most recent actual sold value of this book signed by Winston Church Hill, it was sold in August of 2021

If you have an offer for 3500.00, that is fantastic, I would take it. If this were listed on the current market it would have an estimated value of the most recent one sold.

Ok but doesn’t it matter who it’s dedicated too and with his notes?

Not really, the only thing collectors look for are Winston Churchill's actual signature. He dedicated a lot of books to different persons.
