Burrough, Bryan and Helyar, John
Barbarians at the Gate: The Fall of RJR Nabisco.
Harper & Row, Publishers, New York, 1990. First edition, early printing of this business classic. Octavo, original half cloth, illustrated. Association copy, inscribed by co-author John Helyar on the half-title page in the year of publication, "To Jim, To the best writer in the family, who one day, I hope will show the world. Your lovin' bro, Love, John 8/17/90." The recipient was the author's brother. Very good in a very good dust jacket. Jacket design by Neil Stuart. An exceptional association. The ultimate story of greed and glory, Barbarians at the Gate is the gripping account of these two frenzied months, of deal makers and publicity flaks, of an old-line industrial powerhouse that became the victim of the ruthless and rapacious style of finance in the 1980s. "It’s hard to imagine a better story and it’s hard to imagine a better account" (Chicago Tribune). Made into the film directed by Glenn Jordan and written by Larry Gelbart. It stars James Garner as F. Ross Johnson, the CEO of RJR Nabisco, Jonathan Pryce as Henry Kravis, his chief rival for the company and Fred Thompson as James Robinson III, the CEO of American Express. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
