About this Item

262 p. Illustrations (some in color). Bound in full morocco. Gilt edged. Maps. Occasional footnotes. From Wikipedia: "William Frank Buckley, Jr. (November 24, 1925 February 27, 2008) was an American conservative author and commentator. He founded the political magazine National Review in 1955. He hosted 1, 429 episodes of the television show Firing Line (1966 1999) where he became known for his transatlantic accent and wide vocabulary. He also wrote a nationally syndicated newspaper column and numerous spy novels. Buckley's primary contribution to politics was a fusion of traditional American political conservatism with laissez-faire economic theory and anti-communism, laying groundwork for the new American conservatism of U.S. presidential candidate Barry Goldwater and President Ronald Reagan. Buckley wrote God and Man at Yale (1951) and over 50 other books on writing, speaking, history, politics, and sailing, including a series of novels featuring CIA agent Blackford Oakes. Buckley referred to himself as either a libertarian or conservative." Very good in very good dust jacket. Signed by author. Inscribed to Ralph de Toledano. This was apparently part of a set of 27 first editions that Buckley inscribe to de Toledano (documentation laid in). Bookseller Inventory # 70350
