About this Item

8vo., charcoal boards and brown cloth lettered in white and black; worn pictorial dust jacket. First edition. A presentation copy, inscribed by Rau to Lois and Philip Jessup: "For Lois & Phil - with much love from Santha," on the half-title page; with the Jessups' pencil annotations throughout. Lois Walcott Kellogg Jessup worked tirelessly for the American Friends Service Committee, the U.S. Children's Bureau (preparing reports on children in Europe during Second World War, and the United Nations, advocating for women's rights around the world. She married Philip C. Jessup, a judge on the International Court of Justice and veteran U. S. diplomat, credited with playing a major role in ending the Soviet blockade of West Berlin. An unusual presentation, linking the iconic diplomat Jessup with the distinguished Indian-born American author Rau, whose uncle served as India's representative to the United Nations.
