About this Item

First Edition, SIGNED by John H. Jenkins below his printed name on the title-page. 8vo, in original printed stiff paper wrappers, staple bound. 15 pp. A near fine copy of this rarely encountered work, the wrapper has worked free of the staples but is complete and included. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. This is Jenkins' account of the purpose and agenda of John F. Kennedyís ill-fated trip to Texas. It includes the complete text of the two speeches Kennedy was scheduled to give in Dallas and Austin which, of course, fate would never allow to be given. Jenkins (1940-1989) was a noted historian, publisher and antiquarian book seller. He was a fellow of the Texas State Historical Association and in 1980 was elected president of the ABAA. In 1989 he was, much like the subject of this book, shot in the head in Texas. Oddly, his death was declared a suicide by the local authorities in spite of the fact that the shot was clearly to the back of the head and no weapon could be found anywhere in the vicinity.
