About this Item

This is the limited edition set of the White House Years, two volumes. This is one of 66 unnumbered sets that went to his family and best friends. This set was inscribed to his brother Milton, who was also a confidant and adviser to Dwight. Eisenhower has inscribed Mandate For Change to Milton, writing: "Dear Milton, Should this book achieve any measure of public approval much of the credit will belong to you. I am grateful for your help and assure you that the flaws found herein are mine alone. Devotedly, Ike, 14 October 1963." The second volume is signed "Devotedly Ike" on an Eisenhower Farm card. The books are in fine condition, with their original glassine jackets. The inscription page in the first volume was cut irregularly by the publisher at the bottom of the page (a bit jagged). The publisher slipcases are near fine with the slightest of wear. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-16681298510

Store Description

A passion for U.S. history and U.S. presidents became a hobby, which then became a business: finding fascinating and valuable books that have been signed or owned by the people who made our country what it is. We also occasionally collect books written by or about athletes, artists and other celebrities.
