Memoirs of an Interpreter, Birse, A H
1 Birse, A H Memoirs of an Interpreter
Michael Joseph, London 1967 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine Fair Hardcover 
254 pages (complete). A satisfying copy. The dustjacket has wear about the edges, scuffing and some age-related tanning and marks. The dj is comfortably secure. The boards are neat and healthy. Within, the contents of this memorable memoir by Churchill's interpreter (English/Russian), are fresh and confident. The pages are very clean, clear, certain - as if barely read throughout. fk
