Hutchinson & Co., London 1943 1st Edition Hardcover Fair No Jacket Hardcover

He is still most known as Soviet Ambassador to London for much of WW2 and as part of the Soviet delegation to Yalta and Potsdam. The publication of this book coincided with (but was unattached to) his recall to Moscow. The book was printed according to war-time economy standards. The cover is much abused. It is very marked and there is wear to all edges, corners and seams. The spine is strong. The contents are clean, companionable and confident. fk
