About this Item

This book has lilght gray cloth boards with white lettering on the spine, it has some wear at the spine ends, it would be best for me to send pictures of this book and cover. The unusual twist on this one is an inscription by the man whose endorsement is printed on the front of the jacket. Senator Stuart Symington, the first Secretary of the Air Force, had the following comment on the front free end paper, "To Vernon Taylor" "Probaby the first friend I had who alerted me to the danger of the Communist Conspiracy" "From Stuart Symington". A most unusual inscription, we don't know who Vernon Taylor was, but he obviously had some influence over one of the most influential men of his time. This book has significance from several aspects. We ship in cardboard boxes, and guarantee satisfaction. Bookseller Inventory # 23474
