Signed - War As I Knew It by George Patton - Inscribed by Wife, Beatrice Patton
Boston: Houghton-Mifflin, 1947. VG-G/VG-G - Binding is quite tight, pages clean, some early pages slightly foxed , spine ends slightly edge-worn and spine slightly sunned with small discolorations at top and bottom -- owner's name is on fly title page; the dust jacket has some very small tears on spine ends and front corners and the spine is considerably sunned (see all photos). Extremely Rare Signed and Inscribed 1st Edition of General Patton's posthumously published thoughts and narratives - signed and inscribed by his wife, Beatrice Ayer Patton, who assembled from General Patton's letters to her, his diary, and his unfinished writings this exceptional book. While there have been numerous biographies of General Patton, none, I believe, has been able to capture the real Patton as this: his actual thoughts, written by him, not only on war but also on a wide range of interests ... with knowledge to match them -- on history, culture, geography, politics, religion, personalities, to name but a few. A unique and great historical figure in many respects as exemplified in this rare edition of the book. Laid in is an actual print (3 3/4" x 6 1/4") of photo from Ms. Patton of General Patton looking across the Rhine in March, 1945 (see my Photo # 12 here). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Christa's Mode (1727phipps) [Palm Beach, Florida, United States]
