Outrageous Fortune


Crawshay-Williams, Eliot (September 4, 1879 - May 11, 1962), was a British author, officer, and Liberal Party politician. He was a Member of Parliament and Parliamentary Private Secretary to Prime Minister Lloyd George and Winston Churchill.

(Book #ID 78300)

Published by John Long Ltd., 47 Princes Gate, London First Edition 1944. London 1944.

First edition hard back binding in publisher's original black cloth covers, gilt title and author lettering to the spine. 8vo. 7½'' x 5¼''. Contains 192 printed pages of text. Light marks to the boards. Very Good condition book in Very Good condition dust wrapper with short closed tears and rubs to the spine ends and corners, not price clipped 8/6. Dust wrapper supplied in archive acetate film protection, it does not adhere to the book or to the dust wrapper. Crawshay-Williams was the son of Arthur John Williams, a Welsh barrister and politician. He was educated at Eton, and Trinity College, Oxford. He joined the Royal Field Artillery and at the 1906 general election he stood as a Liberal candidate in the Chorley constituency in Lancashire. He had been employed by Winston Churchill at the Colonial Office from 1906 to 1908. He was elected at the January 1910 general election as MP for Leicester, serving as parliamentary private secretary to David Lloyd George. He resigned from Parliament in 1913 following his being named as co-respondent in a divorce case brought by fellow Liberal Hubert Carr-Gomm the MP for Rotherhithe. It was as he wrote in his autobiography "the death blow of my career". In June 2010, a letter written by Crawshay-Williams to Churchill, pleading with the prime minister to come to terms with Adolf Hitler, was sold by New York publishing executive Steve Forbes. It was written in 1940, before the U.S. had joined the war. "I'm all for winning this war if it can be done," the letter said, adding that "an informed view of the situation shows that we've really not got a practical chance of actual ultimate victory" and that "no questions of prestige should stand in the way of our using our nuisance value while we have one to get the best peace terms possible." Churchill's reply was bitingly brief and to the point. "I am ashamed of you for writing such a letter. I return it to you -- to burn and forget." The two letters combined fetched $51,264.
