Named for Winston Churchill's legendary home in England's Kent countryside, Chartwell Booksellers is the only standing bookshop in the world devoted to the writings of Sir Winston Churchill. Over its 30 year existence, Chartwell has handled first edition copies of every one of the 34 books that Churchill published in his lifetime, as well as many of the most significant Churchill rarities to come to light over the past three decades, including Churchill’s original handwritten manuscript for one of his only works of fiction, a short story entitled On the Flank of the Army, which was first published on December 18, 1902 in Youth’s Companion magazine.

Chartwell Booksellers
Over the course of his long life, Winston Churchill frequented just about all of London’s finest and most historic booksellers. On December 4, 1900, he paid his first bill to his father’s favorite bookseller, the esteemed James Bain. By 1910, Churchill was also buying books voraciously from Hatchards and from E. Joseph. He took home French novels from Maggs Bros. and began to patronize Henry Sotheran & Co., while returning to Bain, where he purchased copies of his own books, including Lord Randolph Churchill and My African Journey. His torrid trade with all of these booksellers would continue uninterrupted right through the war years of World War I and after.
