Goodbye gift to PM came from Chapel Place bookshop

Goodbye gift to PM came from Chapel Place bookshop

This rare and collectable set was sourced from Hall’s Bookshop in Chapel Place before being handed to the PM by colleagues following his last Cabinet meeting last month.

“Hall’s Bookshop in Chapel Place is one of the most famous in Britain – a treasure trove of rare and precious books,” said Tunbridge Wells MP Greg Clark, who was at the cabinet meeting in his role as Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

“When the Cabinet looked for a gift to mark a tumultuous three years of Boris Johnson’s premiership, they chose a set of first editions of Sir Winston Churchill’s books on the Second World War.

“The Prime Minister is a biographer and prominent admirer of the wartime Leader.

“The right set of books was found at Hall’s in Tunbridge Wells and was presented to the Prime Minister at his final Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, July 19 – which was also the hottest day in British history, when temperatures reached over 40 degrees.”
