About this Item

641 pages. Presentation inscription from the author to Capt. Leo Roberts, SC, USN (1916-1996, and whose papers are now held at the Harry S. Truman Library). Three additional paragraphs presenting this book from Leo Roberts to his brother Keith Roberts. There is a moderate amount of marginalia and some underlining, in the hand of Leo Roberts, who is included in the book, and appears to have contributed information used by the author. Although some of the notes are of a personal nature (i.e. "I dated his daughter," the majority are of a scholarly/historical nature providing additional facts and details. Volume is otherwise tight and fairly clean, with only a couple of very small and light smudges/stains. Dust jacket remains very clean, though shows a little very light wear over head of spine. Jacket is now protected in a clear mylar sleeve. Bookseller Inventory # 031331

Store Description

With more than 25 years of experience buying and selling out-of-print, collectible, and rare books, maps, and ephemera, I am now doing business from my home at 60 Poplar Heights Rd.; Chanute, KS 66720; U.S.A. by appointment only. I offer a selection of more than 5000 books of all genre, as well as more than 1000 maps ranging from 15th century to early 20th. All inventory is hand selected and believed to be of significance for the collector, the reader, the historian or the general book lover. Historically, I have specialized in Kansas and regional history, but also maintain quality collections of Natural History, Theology, Americana, Railroad, Travel and Exploration, Medicine, Art, and Psychology, Neurology, and Psychiatry. Fine bindings, plate books, signed and inscribed items are also an important part of my collections. Smaller, though intriguing collections of other genre are also a part of my holdings. Appraisal, consultation, and collection development services are available. Please come and browse, talk books, and have a cup of coffee in a relaxed and book friendly environment. But for the convenience of both of us, please email or call first. Trade terms available and dealers are welcome.
