Small 4to. Tan cloth. ix, 437pp. Maps, map endpapers. Very good. Just a book club edition of this volume in editor Lewis Gannett's "Mainstream of America Series," but a tight and decent copy with nice provenance: Catton boldly signs and inscribes the half-title page in black ink "To Adlai E. Stevenson III / with all / good wishes / Bruce Catton." Stevenson (b. 1930) is son of the then-presidential candidate, Illinois governor Adlai E. Stevenson II (1900-65), and would go on to serve in the U.S. Senate himself (1970-81). Bookseller Inventory # 39110
