This reports the details on the publisher's edition of Life magazine's condensed History, originally published in 6 volumes. There will be 70% new photographs, nearly double the number of colored pages -- many of these rare photographs not available ten years ago. Norman Ross, the editor, examined some 14,000 pictures before determining his selection,- 311 photographs. The de luxe edition contains in addition a long-playing Columbia Masterpiece record of Churchill's war speeches and a special slip case. Extensive promotion by radio and TV will help launch the book.
