A signed and numbered handmade 80pp limited edition of 50 copies set in Garamond type on A5 90gsm St Cuthbert's Mill watercolour inkjet paper, quarter bound in faux suede.

In 1928, Sir Horace Rumbold was appointed British ambassador to Berlin. In January 1933, Hitler was appointed Chancellor. Sir Horace's despatches to the Foreign Office were detailed and prescient warnings of the dangers of Hitler's rise to power. They fell on deaf ears and appeasement became the British government's policy. Later historians have recognised and praised Sir Horace's warnings. These are the illustrated - and slightly edited - despatches from that period.
