USA Today online has produced a wonderful story about the only book shop in the world dedicated specifically to books by and about Winston Churchill. Barry Singer, who was interviewed by the Chartwell Bulletin last October, is featured in a three-minute video that accompanies the online story. Among other treasures, Barry displays one of the rarest works in the Churchill cannon: a copy of the 1906 speech anthology For Free Trade with an asking price of $160,000. Barry says the price is negotiable, but why quibble? In his 1998 Connoisseur’s Guide to the Books of Sir Winston Churchill, Richard Langworth put the market price at a mere $50,000! Looks like a good investment. To read the full story and watch the video, please CLICK HERE.

Barry’s own book, Churchill Style, has been a popular seller. Barry’s talk on this subject wrapped up the panel sessions at the 30th International Churchill Conference last November in Washington, DC. His well-received remarks will be published later this year in the Proceedings column of Finest Hour. New York City has long been a destination for many reasons, but a visit to the ultimate Churchill book shop may the best reason yet.
