JOHNSON, Lyndon B.] MAGUIRE, Jack
A PRESIDENT'S COUNTRY: A GUIDE TO THE HILL COUNTRY OF TEXAS
The Alcalde Press (1964), Austin. One of a very small but unknown number of copies bound in full red leather with a gilt decoration of a saddle on the front cover and gilt lettering on the spine. Illustrated with drawings by Mac Tatchell and photographs; 80 pages. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the President on the title page: "To Dorothy Nichols/with love--/Lyndon B. Johnson." Dorothy Nichols was a personal secretary and assistant to Johnson from the time he was a freshman congressman until the end of his presidency. She was the first female assistant Johnson hired. They were so close that Johnson gave her away at her wedding and included her in his will. Books genuinely signed by LBJ are quite scarce, and most of those are copies of THE VANTAGE POINT, usually signed on a bookplate and sometimes on a tipped-in page as issued by The First Edition Circle. Association copies, such as this, are extremely difficult to come by. We have not seen another association copy of this leatherbound title except for this very copy which we sold back in 2001 and acquired again a few years ago. Corners with gold-plated protectors added. Rubbing of leather at the head of the spine. Very Good or better and quite scarce in this presentation binding [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB [Fleetwood, PA, U.S.A.]
