Product description

Hardback with pictorial dust jacket and blue cloth boards with gilt titling on the spine. it is in good condition, although the jacket is torn and the boards are faded. It is been signed by the author on the front end paper.
Heath was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1970 to 1974. He noted then that his passion for music and sailing were his stress-relievers during his premiership. After Margaret Thatcher usurped his leadership of the Conservative Party, in 1975, he found solace in his sailing, complaining about Mrs Thatcher and signing books. 'Morning Cloud', his racing yacht, was linked with his name as closely as any partner may have been. This is of the December 1975 reprint of the first edition.
