Descrizione: 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. Association copy, 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.". Codice articolo 2154

Descrizione: New York: Harper, 1956. Hardcover. Condizione: Near Fine. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION. Presentation copy inscribed by Kennedy: For Alfred Eisenstaedt with every good wish John Kennedy. Eisenstaedt was perhaps the greatest of the photographers for Life magazine. He was especially renowned for his ability to capture memorable images of important people in the news, including statesmen, movie stars, and artists (New York Times). Eisenstaedt photographed Kennedy extensively during the 1960 presidential campaign and during his presidency. In 1954 Kennedy determined to write a magazine article about famous political leaders who held unpopular positions that were nonetheless in the national interest. After Kennedy s back surgery he expanded the work into a book with the working title Courage in the Senate. Published as Profiles in Courage, the book won the Pulitzer Prize for biography in 1957. It conferred on Kennedy an aura of intellectual seriousness which was critical to his acceptance as a presidential candidate a few years later. One of the most famous books by an American president, Profiles in Courage tells the stories of Kennedy s great predecessors in the Senate: John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, Thomas Hart Benton, Sam Houston, Edmund Ross, L. Q. C. Lamar, George Norris, and Robert A. Taft. This is a splendid presentation copy linking Kennedy and a giant of photojournalism. Original cloth and dust jacket. Some edge wear and fading to jacket. Very good. Inscribed by Author(s). Codice articolo ABE-1581278938118

Foreword by Allan Nevins. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Fred Payne with the highest regards John Kennedy." The recipient Frederick G. Payne was a United States Senator from Maine from 1953 to 1959. He previously served as the 60th Governor of Maine from 1949 to 1952. Kennedy and Payne worked together in the Senate in the 1950s and were close friends. "From the Personal Library of Senator Frederick G. Payne" stamped opposite the front free endpaper, near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Phil Grushkin. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.

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.

Descrizione: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1956. Hardback. Condizione: Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: 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.

Descrizione: Hamish Hamilton, London, 1964. Early printing of the Memorial edition of Kennedy's Pulitzer Prize-winning work. Octavo, original cloth, frontispiece of Kennedy. With a special foreword by Robert F. Kennedy. Boldly signed by Robert F. Kennedy and inscribed, "For John- With warm wishes Ethel Kennedy." From the library of South African policy expert John Kane Berman with his name to the front free endpaper. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. 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.". Codice articolo 101932

Descrizione: New York Harper & Row 1963, 1963. Inaugural Edition. Inscribed and signed actress Lois Nettleton and her husband, writer Jean Shepherd to NettletonÕs mother. The bulk of the inscription is in Lois NettletonÕs hand ÒTo Our Dear Virginia - Mom - A Lovely Lady who needs no lessons in courage. With All Our Love, LoisÓ and then signed ÒJeanÕ in Jean ShepherdÕs hand. Jean Shepherd (1921 - 1999) was an American writer, radio raconteur and TV personality, as well as an actor. Shepherd is perhaps best remembered to the public for co-writing (based on his own somewhat autobiographical stories) and narrating the film A Christmas Story (1983). A very influential figure in American humor, any kind of Jean Shepherd autograph material is rare. Lois Nettleton (1927 - 2008) was a lovely, versatile, and gifted actress and is perhaps best known for her film work in the 1960s and 70s, and later enjoyed a long career as a character actress in both television and film. Miss Nettleton was crowned Miss Chicago in 1948 and went on from there to develop an acting career, first on stage at Chicago's Goodman Theatre and then in New York at the ActorÕs Studio, where she made her Broadway debut in the 1949 production "The Biggest Thief in Town" under the stage name Lydia Scott. In 1955 she was Barbara Bel Geddes's understudy in the role of Maggie in the original Broadway production of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer-Prize winning play "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," staged and directed by the great Elia Kazan, during which time she was able to appear on stage several times. She received the prestigious Clarence Derwent Award for her acting in the play "God and Kate Murphy." Some of her films include Period of Adjustment (1962), Mail Order Bride (1964), The Man in the Glass Booth (1975), and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982). Over the years she made many appearances on television in both dramatic and comedic roles, and won EmmyÕs for her work on a daytime special "The American Woman: Profiles in Courage" (1977), and for "A Gun for Mandy" (1983), an episode of a religious-themed series "Insight." Her appearance in the classic television series The Twilight Zone, in the episode "The Midnight Sun" is a must-see fan favorite. She was married for a time to the radio and television humorist and writer, Jean Shepherd, and also appeared with him in his off-Broadway play "Look Charlie" in 1959. She wowed critics and audiences with her performance of Blanche DuBois in a 1973 Broadway revival of Tennessee WilliamsÕ A Streetcar Named Desire and was nominated for a Tony Award for her work in the 1976 play They Knew What They Wanted by Sidney Howard.
