About this Item: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1956. First edition of Kennedy's Pulitzer Prize-winning work. Octavo, original half cloth, with eight pages of black-and-white photogravures. Inscribed by the author to Massachusetts Senator Leverett Saltonstall, "To Senator Saltonstall- with the very highest regards of his colleague John Kennedy." Leverett Saltonstall was the senior senator of Massachusetts while, John Kennedy was the junior senator. An excellent copy in a bright near fine dust jacket. Saltonstall served as Republican Whip from 1949-1957 and as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee from 1953-1955. Saltonstall attended the wedding of John Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953, and the two served together in the Senate from 1953 to 1960. Saltanstall and Kennedy worked together closely over the course of several years, as evidenced of one of their constituents thought the two had an even closer relationship, mistakenly assuming Saltonstall to be Kennedy's uncle. "If you are ready to admit it," Kennedy kidded in a 1963 letter, "I am." Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An excellent association linking these two statesmen. The Pulitzer Prize-winning book was written when Kennedy was the junior senator from Massachusetts, and it served as a clarion call to every American. The inspiring accounts of eight previous heroic acts by American patriots inspired the American public to remember the courage progress requires. Now, a half-century later, it remains a classic and a relevant testament to the national spirit that celebrates the most noble of human virtues. Kennedy relates these heroisms to sketches of American politicians who have risked their careers for principle. "A man does what he must," he wrote, "in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures-and that is the basis of all human morality.". Seller Inventory # 2154

About this Item: Harper and Brothers, New York, 1955. Condition: Very good +. Dust Jacket Condition: near fine. First Edition. INSCRIBED "For Mathilda Westbrook Sinclair - / With the very best wishes / John F. Kennedy", Quality copy of one of the most important Presidential books of the 20th Century, certainly the only one to have won a Pulitzer Prize. 16mo 6" x 8.5" pp. [vi] xix 1- 266. Book has light fraying along edges including front right corner and slight split at top of spine and puncture hole mid-spine. Binding is very strong.despite being opened often to admire this historic signature. Dust Jacket, perhaps married, has only two small chips on front lower left, slight browning at upper half of spine and light wear at top and bottom of DJ spine. Becoming available less frequently, cornerstone of every authentic Presidential collection. "All us in the Senate meet endless examples of such conflicting pressures, which only reflect the inconsistencies inevitable in our complex economy. If we tell our constituents frankly that we can do nothing, they feel we are unsympathetic or inadequate. If we try and fail - usually meeting a counteraction from other Senators representing other interests - they say we are like all the rest of the politicians. All we can do is retreat into the Cloakroom and weep on the shoulder of a sympathetic colleague - or go home and snarl at our wives." (p 19). Light Blue with black spine and gold text on spine.

About this Item: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1956. Hardback. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Reprint. PROFILES IN COURAGE. John F Kennedy. Harper & Brothers, New York 1956 Reprint. 266pp Hardback. This copy is bound in original blue cloth covered boards, black linen spine with bright gilt titling. Outer page edges are uncut, the text block is unmarked bright and white, tight and square. The unclipped dust wrapper has some minimal edge wear. It has now been covered in removable clear mylar protective film. The copyright page makes no mention of 'First Edition' and has the letters H-F suggesting that this is not a first edition. The inscription to the f.e.p. in the author's own hand in black ball point reads "To Professor Salvador Madariaga with the highest esteem on the occasion of a most pleasant visit to the Senate John Kennedy 1957" There are two other sets of figures, I suspect added at a later date, which may be Professor Madrariaga's own library reference numbers. Salvadore Madariaga (1886-1978) was a statesman, scholar and writer. He was appointed Spanish Ambassador to the United States in 1931, a post he held for five years. As a Classic Liberal he went into exile in Oxford, England after the eruption of the Spanish Civil War and organised opposition to Generalissimo Francisco Franco. He was a regular visitor to the United States and later corresponded with Kennedy on Latin American affairs. This book was said to have been written in the years 1954-1955 while Kennedy was convalescing after an operation on his back as a result of an injury sustained during World War II. It contains a number of chapters devoted to notable Americans who at crucial moments in history had revealed a special sort of greatness while disregarding dreadful and personal consequences to their public and private lives. It became a best seller and he was awarded the Pulitzer prize for the book. After publication the book was subject to a claim by an ABC columnist that it had not been written by Kennedy, a charge that was robustly defended by both Kennedy's, father and son. Evidence and statements were produced to substantiate the fact that John F Kennedy worked on the book and due cognisance was given to the editorial assistance given by Theodore C. Sorensen (acknowledged in the preface to this book). In the end, because ABC could not prove otherwise, they agreed to broadcast a lengthy retraction and the matter was settled.
