Because the overwhelming majority of wood engravers were young and progressive, their art from the very beginning became an effective weaponin the cultrual armoury that served the Chinese working class."

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd,, 1956?-8. 4 volumes, octavo (237 × 150 mm). Finely bound by Zaehnsdorf in dark blue crushed morocco, titles and double line mitre to spines, double rule to boards, inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. All volumes illustrated with maps and genealogical tables. Some occasional light foxing, spines and boards a little faded, some mild surface loss to lower back board on volume 1, an excellent set. First editions, first impressions. A particularly attractively set. Churchill's history of the two branches of the English-speaking nations ?- the British Empire and the United States ?- was begun during his "Wilderness Years" in the early 1930s, but not completed until after his retirement from the political stage in the late 1950s. The events of the Second World War, the major interruption in the writing process, had reconfirmed his belief in the "Special Relationship": "For the second time in the present century the British Empire and the United States have stood together facing the perils of war on the largest scale known among men, and since the cannons ceased to fire and the bombs to burst we have become more conscious of our common duty to the human race." Consequently, he gave considerable attention to the key events of American history. Around a quarter of the third volume, "The Age of Revolution", is dedicated to the American War of Independence, and a full third of the final volume, "The Great Democracies" contains a detailed study of the American Civil War.

      "Typed Letter Signed ?Harry S Truman,? 1 page, 7.25? x 10.5?. Kansas City, Missouri, March 19, 1956. To Thomas E. Turner, Chief, Central Texas Bureau, Dallas Morning News, Waco, Texas.

In full, ?Thank you very much for sending me the editorial about Margaret from The Dallas Morning News ?" it is very interesting. I suppose there has to be a first time for everything and I more than appreciate your thoughtfulness in sending me the editorial.? In a postscript, Truman penned ?That paper has treated me like a pickpocket!? On March 12, 1956, at a morning news conference in Kansas City, Missouri, former President Harry S. Truman announced for himself and Mrs. Truman that their daughter Margaret was engaged to Clifton Daniel, assistant to the foreign news editor of ?The New York Times.? That afternoon, Miss Truman and Mr. Daniel met with newsmen at the Hotel Carlyle in New York City where Miss Truman had been living. They said they had met in November 1955, were engaged in January, and would be married in Independence, Missouri, in April. The announcement of Margaret?s engagement may have resulted in the editorial. An Associated Press story about the Truman letter here offered, headlined ?Truman Thanks Paper / For ?First? Good Turn,? was published by ?The New York Times? on March 28, 1956. In full, ?Former President Harry S. Truman still has a strong opinion about newspapers that have not agreed with him, Thomas Turner found out today. Several days ago Mr. Turner, of The Dallas Morning News? central Texas bureau, clipped a Dallas news editorial praising Margaret Truman and mailed it to her father. The Dallas News was a vigorous critic of Mr. Truman when he was President. In less than a week he had an answer, which appeared to Mr. Turner to have been typed by Mr. Truman himself. The note thanked Mr. Turner, then added: ?I suppose there has to be a first time for everything.? A hand-written sentence was written under Mr. Truman?s signature. It read: ?That paper has treated me like a pickpocket.?? A photocopy of the ?Times? AP story is present."

        Profiles in Courage

      New York: Harper & Brothers,, 1956. Octavo. Original black cloth backed blue boards, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in the dust jacket. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Walter Duffy with kind wishes John Kennedy". The recipient was a writer on politico-legal affairs. Profiles in Courage represented not so much an analysis of bravery in others, but was more a key statement of what Kennedy himself held to be the marks of integrity and bravery. As such, beyond its Pulitzer Prize winning status, it was a literary lynchpin in the early move toward the highest office as Kennedy positioned himself for the big push. Presentation copies of this work were an important part of his campaign and examples such as this one inscribed to a pressman are particularly compelling.

They said they had met in November 1955, were engaged in January, and would be married in Independence, Missouri, in April. The announcement of Margaretâ??s engagement may have resulted in the editorial. An Associated Press story about the Truman letter here offered, headlined â??Truman Thanks Paper / For â??Firstâ?? Good Turn,â? was published by â??The New York Timesâ? on March 28, 1956. In full, â??Former President Harry S. Truman still has a strong opinion about newspapers that have not agreed with him, Thomas Turner found out today. Several days ago Mr. Turner, of The Dallas Morning Newsâ?? central Texas bureau, clipped a Dallas news editorial praising Margaret Truman and mailed it to her father. The Dallas News was a vigorous critic of Mr. Truman when he was President. In less than a week he had an answer, which appeared to Mr. Turner to have been typed by Mr. Truman himself. The note thanked Mr. Turner, then added: â??I suppose there has to be a first time for everything.â?? A hand-written sentence was written under Mr. Trumanâ??s signature. It read: â??That paper has treated me like a pickpocket.â??â? A photocopy of the â??Timesâ? AP story is present."
