JOHNSON, Lyndon Baines] ELLISON, Ralph; McNAMARA, Robert; ROCKEFELLER, Nelson; et. al
13 January 1969, New York. Folio (10" x 15") in contemporary blue morocco-backed cloth by James MacDonald, housed in cloth chemise and matching blue morocco-backed slipcase. The 1969 date comes from the limitation leaf at the front, but likely assembled in 1973. An assembled album of approximately 21 finely printed testimonials about Johnson, all but 2 SIGNED by their authors and most with a letter or note inserted from the writer to Marian S. Heiskell of the NEW YORK TIMES dated 1973, acknowledging her request for the testimonials. A limitation leaf at the front gives only the place and date listed above and numbers this copy 255 from an unstated limited edition. A unique assembly of letters sent to Marian Heiskell by government and non-government notables requesting them to sign testimonials about Lyndon Johnson. Includes: Ralph Ellison, Laurance Rockefeller, Henry Ford III, Nelson Rockefeller, George Meany, Michael DeBakey, Carl Stokes, McGeorge Bundy, Tom C. Clark, etc. Of interest is a typed note from author Ralph Ellison and a SIGNED statement from Robert McNamara that precedes his SIGNED testimonial, this also paired with a handwritten note from McNamara in the margin of Heiskell's original letter. We are not aware of another copy offered for sale. The first text leaf slightly dust soiled and with a few stray marks, stain to Bundy leaf (for which he apologizes in his letter), some very light other thumbsoiling. Book and chemise about Fine, some rubbing to spine of slipcase which is Near Fine [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB [Fleetwood, PA, U.S.A.]
