About this Item

First Edition. Signed and inscribed by the author, J. Edgar Hoover, inscribed in the year of publication: ÒTo John Gottlieb. Best Wishes, J. Edgar Hoover, Xmas Ô65.Ó Laid in is a one-page Typed Letter Signed, dated March 1, 1961, to General John O. Gottlieb, on J. Edgar HooverÕs personal FBI stationary signed ÒEdgarÓ in blue ink. The text of the letter is both cordial and authoritative in tone, initially referencing an invitation extended by Gottlieb to Hoover and HooverÕs long time companion, Clyde Tolson, to visit him the next time they were on the west coast. In the next paragraph, Hoover responds to GottliebÕs inquiry into rumors of HooverÕs possible retirement: ÒWith regard to your comments on the prediction of my retirement as Director of the FBI, I thought you might like to know there is not a scintilla of truth to this story, and that I have no intention whatsoever of retiring.Ó The book is a look into some of the more sensational FBI cases and criminals of the 20th Century including John Dillinger, Ethel & Julius Rosenberg, and Machine Gun Kelly. Illustrated. Very good in a dust jacket missing two pieces (1Ó and 2Ó) on the spine and some small chips and tears. Bookseller Inventory # 8323E
