Notes

First edition, first impression. Churchill's biography of his father was published on 2 January 1906 to "almost universal acclaim in the Press" (Churchill, Winston S. Churchill II) the Sunday Times remarking on Churchill's "maturity of judgement, levelheadedness and discretion" and the Spectator praising his style: "He has chosen the grand manner... but the general effect is of dignity and ease." Churchill also received plaudits from a number of well-known political biographers, J. A. Spender, biographer of Campbell-Bannerman and Asquith, called it a "brilliant book", and W. F. Monypenny, author of the Life of Disraeli, remarked that "alike in style and architecture and for its spirit, grasp and insight the book seems to me truly admirable".
