Eisenhower, Dwight D
At Ease: Stories I Tell to Friends.
Doubleday & Company, Inc, Garden City, NY, 1967. First edition of Eisenhower's final book of memoirs. Octavo, original cloth, frontispiece. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "For Mrs. Isabella James with best wishes Dwight D. Eisenhower." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Patricia Saville Voehl. The informal tone of this, Eisenhower's last volume of memoirs, reflects the author: "the general who hated war, the president who sought peace. quick to anger, quicker to forgive, usually sunny in his disposition. intelligent, well educated, a man of the broadest experience, but the characteristic that mattered most to most Americans was his personality. He loved life and he loved people" (ANB). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB [Palm Beach, FL, U.S.A.]
